Pantea Modiri: Separation from Iran International Network Raises Questions

Pantea Modiri, a former anchor of the Iran International Network, recently made headlines with her public announcement of separation from the network. Her departure has sparked curiosity and raised questions among both her followers and industry observers.

In a tweet posted yesterday, Pantea Modiri revealed that she had parted ways with Iran International since September 2022, contrary to her earlier claim of September 2023. This discrepancy in dates has fueled speculation and led to doubts about the credibility of Modiri’s news reporting during the previous year’s protests. Some online users have even made humorous comments about her mention of starting an “independent media company.”

Saman Rasoolpour, an editor at Iran International, indirectly addressed the situation in a subsequent tweet without explicitly mentioning Pantea Modiri. Rasoolpour suggested that Modiri’s departure was not voluntary but a result of her negligent conduct. He stressed the professional nature of joining and leaving media organizations and highlighted that dismissals can occur due to intentional or unintentional violations of administrative principles.
