The journalist, Sundar Vilas Latpate, was found hanging at his house in Pundalik Nagar around noon, an official said.
He was rushed to a local hospital, but was declared dead before admission, he said.
Police recovered a suicide note purportedly written by Latpate, which said he was ending his life as his wife was not staying with him, the official said.
A case of accidental death has been registered and a probe is underway, he said.
