After a month and a half of industry speculations, Shivnath Thukral, who was recently elevated as Business Editor and Adviser Strategy at NDTV, has quit the organisation. Thukral has been with the company for 14 years, and was heading the group’s business channel, NDTV Profit, as Managing Editor for the last two years.
Confirming the development to exchange4media, Thukral said, “I have done this for 14 years, and I thought it was about time to take a break and do something different. I have enjoyed my journalism and I am looking forward to my next venture now.”
Thukral remained tight-lipped about his next destination. However, he stated that he would not pursue the media space and would move to the corporate side now.
NDTV officials couldn’t be reached on the channel’s decisions for Thukral’s replacement.
