INX News and INX Media have appointed Nick Pollard and Richard Platt respectively as Consultants

INX News Private Limited has appointed UK’s leading broadcast journalist Nick Pollard as a Consultant on the launch of the company’s 24-hour news channel. Pollard, who has had 30 years’ experience in television news, recently retired after 10 years as head of Sky News, an international news channel. He will be acting as an advisor and consultant on all aspects of the news channel and will work closely with Indrani Mukerjea and Vir Sanghvi.

Sanghvi said, “We aim to create a world class news channel for the 21st century and are thrilled that one of the world’s greatest television news professional has agreed to help us set it up.”

“I am delighted to be involved in this exciting new venture. India is one of the most dynamic and fast-growing news markets in the world, and I believe the new channel will make an immediate and impressive impact,” said Pollard, who is regarded as UK’s leading television professional.

Additionally, Richard Platt, another known name in the UK entertainment industry, has been appointed as Advisor by INX Media Private Limited. He will be advising and working closely with the Creative Head Dilip Ghosh in all aspects of content and programming of the general Hindi entertainment channel 9X.

Platt started his career in broadcasting and communications in London with the advertising agency Masius, Wynne-Williams in the early ’70s. He joined Murdoch’s Network 10 in Australia for one of its most successful ratings periods and left Australia to become the first Programme Controller of pioneering satellite company Sky Television in 1984.

He was invited by the Scandinavian conglomerate Kinnevik, now known as MTG, to launch both the premium pay station TV1000, and to be Programme Controller of the previously launched TV3.

He then moved on to be Director of Broadcasting for the enlarged group United Broadcasting and Entertainment. At the same time, he was also a senior member of the ITV Broadcast Board and developed the first ITV yield (programme cost, benefit index) financial planning model to increase station profitability.
