NDTV was the brainchild of its Executive Co-Chairpersons, Radhika and Prannoy Roy.
Prannoy Roy brought the country to the edge of their seats with his innate knack of translating the complicated facts of election politics and budget number crunching into straight-to-the-point analysis. After several years and thousands of anchoring hours, he has questioned and examined the salient facts about how the news affects the viewers' lives. Radhika Roy, as a print journalist in the mid-1980s, was quick to see the endless possibilities of televised news. With a rare combination of business acumen, editorial expertise and programming excellence, she has charted the Company's growth.
Along with Prannoy and Radhika, KVL Narayan Rao, Executive Vice-Chairperson has also played a vital role in the transition and growth of NDTV from a production house to a media network. He has ensured that the business aspirations of NDTV of becoming a 'global Indian media brand' continued to be achieved.
Under their leadership, NDTV has been home to the country's finest broadcast talent. Some of the best recognised faces on the network are Vikram Chandra, Barkha Dutt, Sonia Singh, Sreenivasan Jain, Nidhi Razdan, Vishnu Som, Puja Talwar, Aneesha Baig, Aunindyo Chakravarty, Abhigyan Prakash, Ravish Kumar, Nidhi Kulpati, Naghma, Manoranjan Bharati, Manisha Natarajan, Siddharth Vinayak Patankar and Rajiv Makhni amongst others.
Together with a 500 plus strong team of reporters and producers around the country, they have been instrumental in building the company's brand and credibility.
Vikram Chandra has successfully gone on to lead NDTV beyond news, in the arenas of Lifestyle, Convergence and Outsourcing and in 2011 was appointed Chief Executive Officer, NDTV Group.
