He worked jointly with Pranoy Roy in Star News and NDTV for a long time. In pre cable tv days both used to do election analysis in Doordarshan. They parted ways and Mr. Dua started his own news channel(I do not remember the name) which failed to grab audience.

He moved on to Sahara where he was Editor In Chief if I wasn't wrong. Didn't last their for months. As he had different views. Than he returned to NDTV. Last I saw him on tv was in on a channel called Swaraj Express.
