India TV ropes in Star News’ Vinod Kapri as Managing Editor

India TV has roped in Vinod Kapri as Managing Editor. Kapri was earlier Deputy Managing Editor at Star News. Kapri brings with him around 12 years of experience.

Confirming the development, Rajat Sharma, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, India TV, said, “Vinod is one of the most astute and resourceful news managers in the entire broadcast industry, and I am delighted to welcome him as the leader of our newsroom. I have fond memories of Vinod’s entry in my team when I started private news in India. To his immense credit, he has never stopped growing. With his infectious energy, unmatched implementation and people skills, I have no doubt that Vinod’s enviable track record at Star News and Zee channel will continue at India TV, taking us very soon to the No. 1 position.”

Kapri commented, “I see every potential in India TV to be the numero uno channel. That is my single-point goal, and God willing, we’ll be there in a few months. I see India TV’s human resource and news infrastructure as our strength. The channel’s key differentiator is the unparalleled connect that Rajat Sharma has among serious news viewers in India and the rest of the world. It’s a logical corollary that we should be the No. 1 channel. On a personal note, I started my news television career under Sharma’s guidance. So it is deeply gratifying, in fact humbling, to be joining my guru, as head of his newsroom.”

After a stint in the print media, Kapri worked in Zee TV and Zee News for nine years, to become Editor-Output. Thereafter, he worked with Star News for three years. Kapri’s operational prowess, including the last few months as Deputy Managing Editor, combined with his unique ability to spot and develop television stories, helped Star News surpass the market leader in weekly ratings several times this year.
