NDTV has announced some senior level changes. Barkha Dutt has been promoted as NDTV Group Editor, while Sonia Singh becomes NDTV’s Editorial Director. Meanwhile, NDTV has also announced the formation of two independent groups – NDTV Editorial Board and The Ethics Committee – in a move to further strengthen its commitment of independent journalism and credible reporting.
Led by Barkha Dutt as President - Editorial Board and Sonia Singh as President – The Ethics Committee, both the groups will ensure regular and continuous oversight on all editorial and ethical matters.
The Editorial Board, with Radhika Roy as Chairperson, will be responsible for all standards and matters editorial across NDTV. The aim of the Editorial Board is to take regular steps and pre-emptive action on the more complex issues that arise in the editorial direction for NDTV as well as be a focal point for answering any queries or complaints on editorial matters raised from within and outside NDTV.
The Ethics Committee will develop consistent standards and oversee all ethical issues across the organization. The Ethics Committee will report into the Compliance Committee chaired by Radhika Roy.
