Ex-president of Deccan Chronicle, M Venkataraman, joins Bhaskar Group for DNA project

M Venkataraman sure is one man who has made headlines in recent months. This time it is in the context to DNA, the paper that will be launched by the Zee-Bhaskar combine through its joint venture, Diligent Media. Even as Bhaskar Group officials confirmed that Venkataraman has joined the Bhaskar Group, they were quick to clarify that his role and designation were "still to be crystallized". He is currently working on the DNA project.

The popular perception in the industry is that Venkataraman is operating in the capacity of CEO. While some believe he is CEO, Diligent Media, others believe he is CEO, Bhaskar Group. Evidently, there is some clarity that has to still take place on that count.

Prior to the DNA assignment, Venkataraman was with Deccan Chronicle as President for a short period. Before that he was with The Times of India Group. Venkataraman, who was Director-Corporate, Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd. (BCCL), publishers of The Times of India, was taken on board by Deccan Chronicle to spearhead its Chennai project. Interestingly, at BCCL, Venkataraman had been designated as Project Director for The Times of India's upcoming Chennai edition.
