Barkha Dutt to set up own multi-media company
Barkha Dutt, group editor, NDTV, has decided to move on from this role and set up her own media company. 
 
Dutt will continue with NDTV as consulting editor and remain anchor for shows - The Buck Stops Here and We The People. A note from Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy, co-founders and executive co-chairpersons, NDTV, informed that Dutt will remain closely associated with NDTV for her analysis and inputs on big events and stories. 
 
The note added, "Barkha Dutt was only 23 when she joined NDTV as a young reporter cum producer. NDTV was the first place she ever worked in, and for two decades we have seen her evolve into one of our most prolific reporters. She has been a key member of the NDTV family and a big part of our memorable journey from a  production house that created a nightly news bulletin for Doordarshan to what we are today. She has worn many hats for NDTV: journalist, anchor, editor;  NDTV has been both her learning ground and her second home.Now, twenty years later, we wish her all the very best as she embarks on yet another role with us. Barkha will be moving to the role of consulting editor. We have literally seen Barkha grow from a child to an adult professional and look forward to our close bonds only strengthening further as she embarks on this new venture.I know you will join us in wishing Barkha the very very best."
