India TV and its CEO, Chintamani Rao, have decided to part ways. When contacted, India TV Chairman, Rajat Sharma, thanked Rao for his contribution, adding, “India TV has achieved the big league in the Hindi news genre in the last one year on the back of innovative news programming and a strong distribution push. A strong team is ready and eager to achieve the next level in sales and branding.”
On his part, Rao, an advertising veteran of more than three decades before he joined India TV, said that he had fond associations of his two years with Sharma and the news television genre. “Terrific”, is how Rao described his innings at India TV. “It will be very satisying to see India TV and Brand Rajat Sharma becoming bigger,” he added.
Rao further said that he would announce his plans in four weeks’ time.
