Probal Gaanguly of MCCS to join INX Network as Director-Sales

After a stint of over two years, Probal Gaanguly, Head of Sales at Media Content and Communication Services (MCCS), has decided to move on. MCCS airs the channels Star News, Star Ananda and Star Majha. Even though official comments were not available at the time of filing the report, informed sources divulged that Gaanguly is joining INX group as Director-Sales.

At present, he is serving his notice period at MCCS, and is reportedly joining INX Network in the first week of September 2007. At INX, Gaanguly is expected to look after channels from both INX Media and INX News.

It may be recalled that another key appointment that INX Media has recently made in its sales division is that of Shailesh Biljani. One of the first tasks on hand for Gaanguly would be the setting up of a sales team.

Gaanguly had joined MCCS at a time when the ad sales of Star News was in the process of moving from STAR India’s charge to MCCS in February 2005. Prior to that, Gaanguly was with Sony Entertainment Television, where he was heading the Ad Sales function of the southern and western regions for the network. He was with Sony for over nine years.

Rumours are rife that in the new structure, Avinash Pandey will look after Star News nationally, and Nilesh Thakkar would be looking after Star Majha nationally. Rajesh Chugh has been the National Sales Head of Star Ananda since April 2007, and that continues.
