Senior Journalist Ravish Kumar quit from his post as Senior Executive Editor at NDTV India on Wednesday, November 30.

Ravish Kumar

Senior Journalist Ravish Kumar quit from his post as Senior Executive Editor at NDTV India on Wednesday after the news channel informed the Bombay Stock Exchange in a regulatory filing that its founders Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy have resigned as the directors of RRPR Holding Private Limited.

Suparna Singh, President, NDYV Group said Kumar’s resignation was effective immediately. Singh, through an email, stated, “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.”

Singh added that Kumar had been an integral part of NDTV for decades and that his contribution has been immense. She said, “We know he will be hugely successful as he embarks on a new beginning.”

In September 2019, Kumar won the prestigious Ramon Magsaysay Award for ‘harnessing journalism to give voice to the voiceless.’ The Ramon Magasaysay Foundation said Kumar was being recognised for ‘his unfaltering commitment to a professional, ethical journalism of the highest standards; his moral courage in standing up for truth, integrity, and independence; and his principled belief that it is in giving full and respectful voice to the voiceless, in speaking truth bravely yet soberly to power, that journalism fulfills its noblest aims to advance democracy.’

Kumar used to host a number of programs including the channel’s flagship weekday show Hum Log, Ravish ki Report, Des Ki Baat and Prime Time. He has also been conferred with the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Award twice.

Prannoy and Radhika Roy resigned as the Directors on the board of RRPR Holding Private Limited, the company said in a regulatory filing on Tuesday. The board of RRPR Holding has approved the appointment of Sudipta Bhattacharya, Sanjay Pugalia and Senthil Sinniah Chengalvarayan as Directors on its board with immediate effect.

The move came after the Gautam Adani-led Adani Group acquired 29.18% stake in television channel NDTV Ltd on August 23 and said it would launch an open offer as required by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) to buy another 26% in the company. On November 22, the Adani Group launched its open offer, which is to remain open until December 5, 2022
