Brijeshwar Singh, DG, AIR, given additional charge as Prasar Bharati CEO

Prasar Bharati will still have to wait for a full-time CEO. As a stopgap arrangement, Brijeshwar Singh, Director General, All India Radio, has been given additional charge as CEO of Prasar Bharati. He succeeds Navin Kumar, whose term as DG, Doordarshan, and Acting CEO, Prasar Bharati, ended on August 23, 2006.

A 1975 batch IAS officer of Tamil Nadu cadre, Singh has been heading AIR since February 2004. Under his stewardship, AIR clocked 70 per cent revenue growth during 2005-06, even while keeping intact its focus on public service programming. AIR earned Rs 270 crore during 2005-06. His keen interest in classical music enabled AIR to bring out quality CDs under the brand name ‘Akashvani Sangeet’ containing rare content from the archives of All India Radio.

An active participant in broadcasting issues, Singh is also the Vice-president of the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association.
