About the Author

Sunetra Choudhury started her career at The Indian Express in 1999, as a metro reporter. In 2000, as a recognition of her abilities she was sent for Japan’s Foreign Press Centre Fellowship by the paper. She became Indian Express’ youngest Deputy Chief Reporter at 24 and also brought out Newsline, the pull-out city section. In 2002, Sunetra joined the launch team of Star News, a 24-hour Hindi news channel. Within a year, she moved to NDTV. After the success of one of her assignments at NDTV, covering the 2009 election campaign, she authored Braking News.

Sunetra anchors a daily, audience-based show called Agenda – the only out-of-studio show of its kind – and a primetime show on student leaders and elections. In April 2016, she got the Red Ink award for her story on how Indians were adopting disabled children.
