Barkha Dutt’s multimedia startup ThePrint to produce content in digital & events space


Barkha Dutt, ex-NDTV group editor and Shekhar Gupta, ex-Indian Express editor, have launched a new media venture called ThePrint, which aims to build multimedia platforms in the digital and events space.

ThePrint currently produces and telecasts a monthly series called #OffTheCuff on NDTV 24×7 and NDTV Profit/Prime. The first event took place yesterday, with discussions with Nikesh Arora about the economy, education system, business and other subjects. Users can follow ThePrint at @theprintindia for further updates.

Interestingly, co-founder Shekhar Gupta, a long-time Indian Express editor, had set up his venture Mediascape in December 2014. That initiative had a similar business model and was to produce two new television shows for NDTV’s English news channel. Note that Barkha Dutt had stepped down from her role as editor at NDTV to set up her own multimedia company and public policy group in February last year.
