2 min read

NDTV’s senior journalist Ravish Kumar, a Ramon Magsaysay awardee, on Wednesday quit the news channel, 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.

In an internal mail, the channel stated that Mr. Kumar’s resignation was in effect immediately.

‘Few journalists have impacted people as much as Ravish did. 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,’ read the mail.

‘Ravish has been an integral part of NDTV for decades, his contribution has been immense, and we know he will be successful as he embarks on a new beginning,’ it added.

Mr. Kumar sent out a message after the day of his resignation, appealing to the people of the country to continue supporting journalists asking questions to those in power at a time when there was a ‘serious threat to democracy.’ ‘“At a time when the judiciary of the country faltered and the people in power tried to silence the voice of many, it was the people of the country that showed immense love towards me. I wouldn’t have been able to do anything without my audience. I urge these people to continue supporting my work, which will now be through my new YouTube channel and Facebook page,’ he said in his YouTube video.
