Sumon Chattopadhyay, a well known name in the Bengali media, has recently joined Tara Newz as Chief Editor. His last assignment was as that of Chief Editor with Kolkata TV. Prior to joining Kolkata TV, he was Executive Producer with Star Ananda. Chattopadhay has had a distinguished career in print journalism prior to moving to the electronic media.
Commenting on his new role, Chattopadhyay said, “My agenda, strictly speaking, is to see that Tara Newz doesn’t take the TRP route. Therefore, what we intend to do is to occupy the mindspace of discerning Bengalis all over the world, including in Bangladesh. In fact, our expansion plans are related to this aspect.”
Tara Newz plans to expand to the European, Canadian and South Asian markets in the future.
