It has been reliably learnt that Amyt Bhatia, Director, Big FM, has put in his papers. Bhatia was part of the core team brought in by COO Tarun Katial during the station’s launch phase. His future destination could not be ascertained.
Bhatia was involved in setting up the station and was one of the first few employees of the channel. He has been looking after business development at Big FM, which included international market expansion, syndication and non-traditional revenues. He was also involved in creating new revenue models for the radio business along with handling the sales strategy for the Adlabs-controlled station.
In his career span of 14 years, Bhatia has earlier worked with Magna Publishers, Indian Express and Times Response.
Both Big FM and Bhatia could not be contacted for comments at the time of filing the report.
