Senior journalist Barkha Dutt has resigned from NDTV after 21 years at the media company. Post NDTV, Dutt has hinted at starting her own independent projects, although it’s not clear what these will be.
Its been a super ride at NDTV but new beginning in 2017. I shall be moving on from NDTV to explore new opportunities & my own ventures! 2/4

It’s worth noting that Dutt had announced launching a digital and events venture called The Print with the former Indian Express editor-in-chief Shekhar Gupta in January last year. At the time she said that her TV relationship with NDTV would continue, and the Print would be a multi media platform in the digital and events space. However, it doesn’t seem like the partnership quite worked out, and Dutt is not listed as a co-founder at the venture anymore.

In 1995, Barkha Dutt joined NDTV straight out of college. “And now, after 21 wonderful years together, Barkha has requested that she would like to explore some new opportunities, pursue other interests and work on her own ventures,” NDTV said in a statement.
