NDTV last week announced the formation of two independent groups – NDTV Editorial Board and the Ethics Committee. Barkha Dutt has been promoted as NDTV Group Editor and President - Editorial Board. Sonia Singh is now Editorial Director and President – Ethics committee.
The two groups will ensure regular and continuous oversight on all editorial and ethical matters. The Editorial Board with Radhika Roy as Chairperson will be responsible for all standards and matters editorial across NDTV.
The aim of the Editorial Board is to take regular steps and pre-emptive action on the more complex issues that arise in the editorial direction for NDTV as well as be a focal point for answering any queries or complaints on editorial matters raised from within and outside NDTV.
The Ethics Committee will develop consistent standards and oversee all ethical issues across the organisation. The committee will report to the Compliance Committee chaired by Radhika Roy.
