Nitin Vaidya bids farewell to Zee

After a successful stint of over a decade, Nitin Vaidya, COO, ZEEL & Business Head, Zee TV, has expressed his desire to explore new vistas. Vaidya had successfully led Zee’s forays into regional space and later all national channels. It is learnt that Zee will not be seeking an immediate replacement for Vaidya’s role and his direct reports will henceforth be reporting into Punit Goenka, MD & CEO, ZEEL.

Speaking on his tenure at the Zee Group, Vaidya said, “It’s been over 10 glorious years with the Zee family, which I shall always cherish. Zee gave me the opportunity to broaden my horizon and explore diversified functions. I am extremely thankful to the management who have always supported and backed my decisions.”

Vaidya’s tenure at Zee Group comprises many landmarks, including launching and later establishing Zee Marathi as the No. 1 channel and setting new benchmarks. He then successfully launched Zee Talkies as an exclusive cinema channel, which was unique for the Marathi genre. He also helped set up the film production and distribution business in Marathi, which rewrote business paradigms and proved to be an unprecedented success. He further established Zee Bangla as a formidable force in the minds of viewers in Bengal. The flagship channel, Zee TV, resurrected and achieved its past glory under Vaidya as COO of National channels.

Commenting on the development, Punit Goenka, MD & CEO, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (ZEEL), said, “Zee family will always remember Nitin for his adroit understanding of viewer’s mind and penetrating insight into content and programming. The entire Zee family wishes Nitin all success in his new endeavours.”
