It’s official: Sameer Nair to join NDTV Imagine as CEO and Director

Even as the word of Sameer Nair moving to NDTV was almost sure, the speculation about his next assignment never quite died. There was talk of him working with other entities like UTV. However, Nair is joining NDTV and the confirmation comes from a statement that NDTV has made to the Bombay Stock Exchange.

The statement read: “Sameer Nair is joining NDTV Imagine Ltd as CEO and Director. NDTV Imagine Ltd is a subsidiary of NDTV Networks PLC.” NDTV Imagine is one of the subsidiaries that were created earlier this year when NDTV had announced its intention to branch out of the news genre. The other subsidiary is NDTV Lifestyle.

NDTV Imagine would be floating Hindi general entertainment channels and at least one is expected to go on-air this year itself. Nair, who is currently with STAR India, will complete his term by March-end. He is expected to join NDTV Imagine soon after.
