NDTV’s Kamal Khan, Veteran Journalist, Dies

New Delhi:

Veteran journalist Kamal Khan, 61, the chief of NDTV’s Lucknow bureau, died at his home in the city this morning after suffering a heart attack.

He is survived by his wife, Ruchi, and son, Aman. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kamal’s family.

Kamal Khan was with NDTV for over three decades and will be remembered as a legendary reporter known for his deep insights into Uttar Pradesh politics – insights he explained effortlessly to his audience and colleagues.

As a news anchor Kamal was the picture of poise and expertise, and his language was famous for its trademark elegance, a draw in its own right.

But, and perhaps more importantly, Kamal was a wonderful and generous person who had only kind words and boundless time for anyone who met him.
