Company Speak

HT Media chairperson and editorial director Shobana Bhartia said, “The year started well for us although economic growth is still slow and there are mixed signals on account of global macroeconomic concerns. Our English dailies saw volume-led growth across markets. Hindustan maintained its upward growth trajectory, driven by our investments in both UP and Bihar. Our digital assets are increasingly gaining a foothold in their markets. The Radio business continues to be profitable and we aim to add to our portfolio of stations in Phase- III auctions. As the year progresses, we believe that we will continue on the growth path and deliver positive results even as the economic environment improves.”
