History

NDTV was the brainchild of its Chairman, Prannoy Roy and his wife and Managing Director, Radhika Roy.

In 1988, NDTV's producers produced a news and current affairs show ‘The World This Week’ for Doordarshan. The show proved to be immensely popular and NDTV established its image as a credible private news producer. It moved on to become the sole news content provider and producer for India’s first 24-hour news channel, Star News. Then in 2003, they launched two 24-hour news channels— NDTV 24x7 in English and NDTV India in Hindi. Later they also launched NDTV Profit, a 24-hour business news channel in 2005, which became a leading business news channel in a short period of time.

As per the CEO of NDTV India Sameer Kapoor the channel was "...a laggard and loss making Hindi News channel..". Sameer goes on to say that "Driving the channel with a new team and greater focus on processes and systems, improved its rank from No: 6 to No 4 in less than 10 months." These 10-months should be considered from July 2008. [1]
