Will work towards NDTV's financial turnaround: Group CEO KVL Narayan Rao

Speaking exclusively to exchange4media, newly-appointed NDTV Group CEO KVL Narayan Rao stated that he will be working towards ensuring “financial turnaround of the company”.  In his second stint as chief executive officer, Rao is determined about delivering both in terms of top-line and bottom-line growth.

“It’s too soon to be making that statement,” Rao said when asked about the key focus areas for him. But he added that he will be coming out with an agenda very soon. “I will try to emulate the footsteps of Vikram Chandra and the dynamism that he showed,” he added as he spoke of a sense of continuity in business operations.

Chandra stepped down as Group CEO of NDTV days after exchange4media first reported on the rumours surrounding his status at NDTV. The star anchor has been accommodated as Consulting Editor, a nomenclature that he now shares with Barkha Dutt.

Rao, who earlier served as the Group CEO for four years between 2007 & 2011, has turned out to be not just the predecessor but also successor of Chandra. Besides being CEO, Rao will continue to work as an Executive Vice Chairperson.
