NDTV on Monday announced the return of Nidhi Razdan to its channel more than a year after falling victim to a recruitment scam. Razdan had left the TV channel after she claimed to have secured a job as a professor at Harvard University.

Sharing a teaser video involving Razdan, NDTV tweeted on Monday, “Next Monday, our new show starts with Nidhi Razdan. The biggest newsmakers – and no wriggle room. “No Spin” at 9.30 pm on NDTV 24×7.”

Razdan, for her part, wrote, “It’s time to stop the excuses, the whatabouthary and the obfuscation. Happy to be back home @ndtv. Watch ‘No Spin’, Monday to Thursday at 9:30pm.”

Last year in January, Razdan had opened up about being scammed by a fake teaching job offer from Harvard University. In a blog post, Razdan had said that she still kicked herself ‘for being such an idiot.’

Former Director of Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard University had reacted in shock to Razdan’s revelation. Joshua Benton had tweeted to clarify that Harvard University had ‘no school of journalism, no department of journalism, and no professors of journalism.’

Meanwhile. the news of Razdan’s return to NDTV evoked mixed reactions. While her supporters congratulated the TV anchor on the news, her detractors reacted with sarcasm and jokes.
