Apurva Purohit, COO (TV Division), Times Entertainment, quits

After completing well over a year with the Times group, Apurva Purohit has decided to quit her responsibilities as the COO, Television Division, Times Entertainment, where she was looking after Zoom TV. Even as a replacement hasn’t been decided yet, the channel will presently directly fall under the supervision of Arun Arora, President, BCCL.

Confirming this, Jyotirmoy Bose, Group Director, HR, BCCL says, “She has spoken to us about this prior to leaving for her vacation. Now on her return we discussed this further and made the official announcement.”

Bose informs that as yet the handover process and other details around the development haven’t been crystallised. The channel requirements would be overseen by Arun Arora. As for the reason of Purohit’s departure, Bose says, “She has been given another good opportunity.”

For Purohit, the excitement of the forthcoming offer, CEO of a media organisation, is obvious. “I have had an extremely good time and a great learning experience at the Times. Zoom is doing well now. People like M K Anand and Shailesh Kapoor have done a fabulous job. I have enjoyed building a team here and I am looking forward at building another team there as well,” expresses Purohit.

Prior to Times Entertainment, Purohit was employed with Zee TV as President. Her stint there was almost for year. In early 2004, she moved to Times to start Zoom TV from scratch. Apart from Zoom, Purohit has also been involved with the spiritual channel that was expected from the Times stable.
