New Delhi: Well-known Television journalist and news anchor Nidhi Razdan on Saturday (June 13) announced that she will quit NDTV to take on a different role as an Associate Professor for teaching journalism at Harvard University Faculty of Arts and Sciences later this year.

While she initially hosted NDTV’s night news bulletins, she later on went on to become the face of the channel’s programme ‘Left, Right and Centre’. Razdan has also authored a book titled ‘Left, Right and Centre: The Idea of India’, which was published in July 2017.

“Some personal and professional news: after 21 years at NDTV, I am changing direction and moving on. Later this year, I start as an Associate Professor teaching journalism as part of Harvard University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences. NDTV has taught me everything. It has been my home. I am proud of the work we do, the stories we cover, the values we stand for, especially at a time when the much of the media has surrendered its objectivity,” she tweeted.

Razdan added that she would miss her colleagues deeply and thanked NDTV co-founders Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy ‘for being the most incredible mentors and bosses’. “You took me in as a 22-year-old and believed in me. I never say never, so TV may one day beckon again. Wish me luck.” She said.

Razdan had become a leading name in English television journalism over the past two decades. She recently won the International Press Institute India award for excellence in journalism for her reporting of the Kathua rape and murder case in Jammu and Kashmir.
