Senior journalist Ravish Kumar quit NDTV on Wednesday, a day after the channel’s founders Prannoy Roy and
Radhika Roy resigned as directors on the board of its parent entity, RRPR Holding Private Limited.
“Ravish has resigned from NDTV, and the company has agreed to his request for his resignation to be effective immediately,”
NDTV Group president Suparna Singh reportedly said in an email to her colleagues.
“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 under-served,” she further added.
“Ravish has been an integral part of NDTV for decades; his contribution has been immense,
and we know he will be hugely successful as he embarks on a new beginning,” she said.

still hold a 32.26 percent stake in NDTV as promoters and have not resigned from the board of the news channel.
