Sanjeev Srivastava has put in his papers at Sahara Group, where he has been CEO and Editor-in-Chief, heading all media related activities of the Group. When contacted, Srivastava confirmed to exchange4media about his decision to quit the Group, but refused to speak about his next destination.
It may be recalled that Sahara India Pariwar had brought on board Srivastava in the second half of December 2009. He took charge from January 2010 and was reporting directly to Subrata Roy, Chairman of the Sahara Group.
Srivastava has over 26 years’ experience in journalism with various media organisations, including The Times of India and Indian Express, and a 16-year stint with the BBC. Prior to joining Sahara, Srivastava was the India Editor at the BBC, leading the entire BBC Hindi output generated from India across all platforms of delivery, including FM, short wave and online.
