Senior NDTV journalist and anchor Ravish Kumar, who hosted the widely lauded primetime show on NDTV India, announced on Wednesday (November 30) that he is resigning from the channel. The development came a day after the channel, in a regulatory filing, said that its founders Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy have resigned as the directors of RRPR Holding Private Limited. On November 22, the Adani group began the process of acquiring an additional 26% stake in the company by launching an open offer that ends on December 5.

Kumar joined NDTV as a translator in 1996 and has been associated the company ever since. His shows – Hum Log, Ravish ki Report, Des Ki Baat and Prime Time – have garnered widespread appreciation over the years. He has won the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Award twice, as well as the Ramon Magsaysay Award in 2019.

Kumar announced his resignation through a video on his YouTube channel, and said he would be posting more regularly on this channel going forward. In the video, Kumar refers to today’s age as ‘Bhasmayug’, when everything good about the profession of journalism is slowly being destroyed.

He said that, “There are many different channels in today’s India, going by different names, but they are all ‘godi media’ which is destroying the ecosystem and atmosphere for journalism.”
