Within six months of joining as Editorial Director of India TV, Qamar Waheed Naqvi has put in his papers. The channel, in an official statement, confirmed the development.
Commenting on Naqvi’s decision to move on, Ritu Dhawan, India TV's MD & CEO, said, "We have accepted his resignation and asked him to serve his notice period."
Naqvi started his career in 1980 as Trainee Journalist (Hindi) with Navbharat Times of The Times of India Group. He then joined the now defunct Hindi weekly magazine ‘Ravivar’, brought out by the ABP Group, as Chief Reporter. Naqvi was part of the team that started the Hindi weekly broadsheet ‘Chauthi Duniya’.
After Chauthi Duniya, Naqvi joined ‘Aaj Tak’ when it was a 20-minute news programme airing on DD Metro in the 90s but left the organisation before Aaj Tak turned into a 24-hour news channel. He returned to Aaj Tak as News Director in 2003 when Uday Shankar, then News Director, TV Today, moved on to launch Star News.
