Podcast: Adani's Takeover of NDTV Is Not Just a Simple Business Deal

"Adani has said he wants to create a global media organisation, but it will have to remain professional" to achieve that goal, the former editor of The Hindu, N. Ram, said.

“Indian news television is the worst in the world, it is a shameful situation,” says eminent journalist N. Ram.

He was speaking to Sidharth Bhatia in a podcast in the context of the imminent takeover of NDTV by industrialist Gautam Adani. “The takeover is not a simple business deal. Businessmen do not run media companies for profits but for vanity and influence.”

“Adani has said he wants to create a global media organisation, but it will have to remain professional” to achieve that goal, the editor said.
