Sumit Singhal, VP, Planning & Strategy at NDTV quits after 8 years

The start of the new year has been marked with some high profile exits at NDTV. Close on the heels of Barkha Dutt’s exit, Sumit Singhal, Vice President, Planning and Strategy at NDTV has quit after spending more than 8 years in the organisation. January 13 was his last working day.

Confirming the news of his exit to exchange4media.com, Singhal spoke about his future plans, “I won’t be able to share much information at this stage. Gradually I might start something on my own. Regarding which area it will be, I feel there is a major gap in the news wires in India, so probably certain things might crop up, but nothing is confirmed as of now.”

Before joining NDTV, he was the Dean and Head of Training, International school of Media Studiesfrom August 2007 to September 2008 and was also in the core launch team of Voice of India news channels. He has been associated with the launch of TV Today Media Institute in August 2005, where he managed complete functioning of the media institute in sync with the news channel and also customised training to sync and support new channel launches- Delhi Aaj Tak and Tez. In 2008, Singhal was also associated with the launch of NDTV Media Institute.
