e4mrecap: The week that was



.



The week gone by saw the appointment of Rajat Sharma, Chairman & Editor-in-Chief (India TV) – Independent News Service Pvt. Ltd, as President of The News Broadcasters Association. Since the festive season is already here, we put the spotlight on how Onam spelled cheer in the south with robust ad spends and how this could well be a precursor to Diwali and Navratri bringing festive cheer across media houses in India. At the national level, ad spends are expected to increase by 15–20%. Starcom won the media business of Godrej & Boyce and will handle their appliances, furniture and securities portfolio. The mandate covers all media other than digital. On August 30, a directive by the Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (I&B) entrusted the Press Information Bureau (PIB) with the task of verifying the circulation of newspapers for which its regional and branch offices will be also given an additional Rs 50 lakh and Rs 70 lakh. This is the first time that PIB has been tasked with verifying circulation of newspapers. Before this, the task was undertaken by the Registrar of Newspapers of India (RNI).Spice Jet’s Ajay Singh has bought a majority stake in NDTV. According to our source, Singh will have controlling stake in NDTV of around 40 per cent and the promoters Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy will hold around 20 per cent in the company.
