Ambikanand Sahay, Sahara’s news business head, quits

Ambikanand Sahay, who was heading the news business of the Sahara Group, including television and print, has resigned. When contacted by exchange4media, Sahay said, “Yes, I have quit as of yesterday.” He refused to divulge any further details.

Sahay was Senior Vice-President of Sahara India Media and Entertainment and had overseen the launch of regional centric channels like Sahara Samay Uttranchal and Sahara Samay Bihar.

Interestingly, earlier this month, Sahay was the person who was sent by Sahara Chairman Subroto Roy to personally visit media owners and editors to convey the announcement that Saharashri was hale and hearty after his prolonged absence from public life. As Sahara insiders claim, this was an indication of Sahay’s proximity to Roy.

In this context, while his sudden departure has raised eyebrows, a senior level source close to his exit, on condition of anonymity, said that Sahay’s “performance and delivery had not been up to expectations”.

Sahay had previously been with The Times of India as Resident Editor of the Lucknow edition, before moving to Delhi as head of Times News Network. He had also worked for The Statesman.
