NTV news anchor Smriti Vidyarthi has finally decided to remain at NTV, following days of speculation over her future. Smriti had been reported to be on her way out of Nation Media, with her preferred destination being KTN.
Reportedly, she was to tender her resignation together with the now former colleague James Smart, in favour of the Mombasa Road based station. James Smart went ahead and resigned heading to KTN, but Smriti remained. She has been silent over her next move, but yesterday she confirmed that she was not leaving Kimathi Street. She tweeted:
Official: After much consideration, I have made the decision to stay at
#NTV – I wish my colleagues who moved elsewhere the very best.
Her announcement received immediate reaction from her present and former colleagues, with most of them wishing her well.
