HT, under her leadership, has been on an expansion mode in recent times. After launching Hindustan Times in Mumbai, the group has also forayed into the FM Radio business bagging stations in major metros. It has also come out with plans for a business daily.

The three nominated members will replace Fali S Nariman, Lata Mangeshkar and media personality Cho Ramaswamy, who retired recently.
