Koovs plc, (AIM: KOOV), the London listed fashion-forward online business has joined forces with strategic partner and investor HT Media to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8, by profiling five amazing young women, famous in India in five very different fields.

The daily features will leverage the reach of HT Media’s flagship English language newspaper, the Hindustan Times, and its landmark Fever 104 FM radio station with profiles in HT City section of the paper and radio interviews running parallel on the evening primetime Fever 104 FM Khuraffati Nitin show, that airs 5-9 pm every day.

The interviews will feature actor Richa Chadda, athlete Namrata Purohit, celebrity stylist Sanjana Batra, comedienne Kaneez Surka and chef Bani Nanda.

This new initiative is part of the continuing strategic partnership between Koovs and HT Media. HT Media Group has invested £3 million and holds a 6.16 per cent stake in Koovs plc. HT Media is recognised for investing in digital companies with strong growth prospects in India and is one of the leading media companies in the country, covering not only print and radio, but also online, digital, and events.
