The news broadcasting industry has seen several top level movements in recent weeks, especially in managerial and editorial functions. The latest buzz in the media industry is about Barkha Dutt joining CNN-IBN as Editor-In Chief.
When contacted by exchange4media, Dutt rubbished reports about her joining CNN-IBN and added that she has even tweeted about it.
In her tweet, Dutt states, “Sahara story entirely speculative; they’ve not spoken to me. If there’s ever any news at my end, you will hear it from me :-)”
Dutt was referring to a report that appeared in the Sahara Samay website that stated that she “has reportedly replaced Rajdeep Sardesai in the office”.
Dutt is currently Group Editor at NDTV. She gained prominence for her reportage of the Kargil War. She has won several national and international awards, including the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian honour.
