Rajeev Singh to be interim CEO of Prasar Bharati

Rajeev Singh, Member (Finance) in Prasar Bharati Board, will take charge as interim CEO of the public broadcaster after SC Panda retires in February, said reports.

The previous CEO Jawhar Sircar had quit in October last year, a few months before his tenure was due to end, following which Panda, who is Member (Personnel), was made the acting CEO. However, Panda is also due to retire in February.

According to news reports, the issue of vacancies arising due to Panda's retirement was discussed in a meeting headed by Prasar Bharati chairman A Surya Prakash in Hyderabad on Saturday.

"In a key decision, the public broadcaster decided that its Member Finance Rajeev Singh will take over as interim CEO, after the present incumbent SC Panda retires in February," said reports.

According to news reports, a source said that a need was felt for expeditious appointment of the two top posts of the CEO and well as Member (Personnel).

It is learnt that the I&B ministry had issued an advertisement for the post of Member Personnel and received several names.

The process of finding a CEO for the board which oversees the country's public broadcasters All India Radio and Doordarshan is also underway, suggest reports.
