After founders, three senior NDTV executives resign

NEW DELHI — Three senior executives of NDTV including the group president, have resigned weeks after the Adani group took control of the broadcaster.

NDTV group’s President Suparna Singh, Chief Strategy Officer Arijit Chatterjee and Chief Technology and Product Officer Kawaljit Singh Bedi have resigned, the company said in a regulatory filing.

“The Company is in the process of putting up a new leadership team, which will set a fresh strategic direction and goals for the Company,” NDTV said.

Last month, the media firm said its founders Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy had resigned as directors after billionaire Gautam Adani’s conglomerate took majority control of the company.

Along with the Roys, four other independent directors also resigned, effective December 30, NDTV said in a statement.

Adani Enterprises Ltd, through subsidiaries RRPR Holding and Vishvapradhan Commercial, now owns 64.72 per cent of NDTV, which runs three national channels. — (PTI)
