I'm taking a short break from the newsroom: Rajdeep Sardesai in email to team

Following the spate of top level exits from Network18 Group, there have been strong speculations about Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, IBN18 Network also on his way out, along with his wife, Sagarika Ghose, Deputy Editor, CNN-IBN.

However, in an email sent to his team, Sardesai says: “To end the speculation and concern expressed by so many of you, just think I should clarify: after a long and wearying (and highly enjoyable) election season, I am taking a short break from the newsroom (haven’t taken one in over a year!). I will be on a month’s leave: reading, writing, travelling, watching the World Cup soccer, and, hopefully, recharging the mind. Aim to be back on the 1st of July. Please keep the energy levels up through the next few weeks and always put journalism first! Vinay, Radha, Nikhil, Sanjeev and the rest of  the team will be there to keep the flag flying!”

Despite this mail, there are many in the industry who doubt whether Sardesai will return after this “short break”. So, it’s a wait and watch till July 1.
