Ashutosh moves on from IBN7; Vinay Tewari takes charge as Managing Editor

Ashutosh has decided to move on from his role as Managing Editor of IBN7, the Network18 Group’s national Hindi news service. He is passing on the mantle to Vinay Tewari, Managing Editor, CNN-IBN, who will now also lead IBN7 editorial operations in the same capacity. In this expanded role, Tewari will also drive network synergies at CNN-IBN and IBN7.

Speaking on this development, B Sai Kumar, Group CEO, Network18 said, “Ashutosh has played a key role in IBN7’s emergence as one of the most credible brands in Hindi news. We thank him for his immense contribution and commitment to the Network. Vinay has led CNN-IBN admirably and in this expanded mandate, we’re confident that he will not only take IBN7 to new heights editorially but also strengthen our general news network further.”

Commenting on this, Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-In-Chief, IBN News Network added, “Ashu has been a driving force behind IBN7 and his passion and leadership has been instrumental in making it into a fearless and independent voice in Hindi journalism. We thank him for his stellar effort and wish him the very best. Vinay has been an integral part of the general news network from the very beginning and I’m confident that he will bring his unique perspective and rich news experience to bear at IBN7 and the network.”

Ashutosh added here, “Building IBN7 into what it is today has been one of the most satisfying experiences of my professional journey. I would like to thank all my colleagues for their support and look forward to newer challenges.”

“IBN7 today stands for the best in hard-hitting and inclusive journalism and it’s a privilege for me to lead it further. I look forward to working closely with the talented and passionate team to ensure we honor the trust of our viewers in IBN7 and ensure that both CNN-IBN and IBN7 benefit and capitalise from the general news network in equal measure,” Vinay Tewari commented.
