MUMBAI: After a stint spanning two decades, Barkha Dutt is now stepping down from her post as NDTV group editor to set up her own multimedia content company and policy group.

Dutt will continue as consulting editor for the news network and will continue as host of her two on-going shows namely The Buck Stops Here (daily) and We The People (weekly).

In an email to its employees, a copy of which is with Indiantelevision.com, New Delhi Television founders Prannoy and Radhika Roy wrote, “She (Barkha) will also be available as always for analysis and inputs on big news events and stories. While her TV relationship with NDTV remains unchanged, in her new role she will be setting up her own multimedia content company and policy group. We have literally seen Barkha grow from a child to an adult professional and look forward to our close bonds only strengthening further as she embarks on this new venture.”

Having made her name reporting the war in Kargil, Dutt became one of NDTV's most prominent faces as it went from a content provider for Doordarshan in its early days to being a media conglomerate that it is today.

Dutt was 23 years old when she joined NDTV as a young reporter cum producer. Having won several awards in her 20 year stint with the channel, Dutt has worn several hats like: journalist, anchor and editor.
