A day after Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy quit as the directors of the NDTV promoter company RRPR Holding Private Limited, Ravish Kumar, Senior Executive Editor at NDTV India, put in his papers on Wednesday “with immediate effect”.
NDTV Group president Suparna Singh, in an email to her colleagues, reportedly said: “Ravish has resigned from NDTV and the company has agreed to his request for his resignation to be effective immediately”.
She said: “Few journalists have impacted people as much as Ravish. This reflects in the immense feedback about him; in the crowds he draws everywhere; in the prestigious awards and recognition he has received, within India and internationally; and in his daily reports, which champion the rights and needs of those who are under-served.”
The move came after the NDTV’s promoter RRPR Holding on November 28 said it had transferred shares constituting 99.5% of its equity capital to the Adani Group-owned Vishvapradhan Commercial.
