I am not quitting Zee: Sandeep Goyal

Sandeep Goyal, Group CEO, Zee Telefilms denied the rumours that he is on his way out. When contacted by the exchange4media correspondent, he stated, "These are just rumours. I am very much at Zee and have no plans of quitting in near future." He also denied that he was considering any other options.

However, if the buzz in the media circles is to be believed, a lot of changes are on the card at Zee. Channel watchers opine that Goyal didn't want to upset the cart, since group's Chairman Subhash Chandra was at Cannes and was expected back last night.

For Zee watchers, several recent developments over the past week are strong pointers. The crucial one being that the group Chairman, Subhash Chandra has taken over the reins of his sagging television empire recently. He is believed to be getting his hands on the day-to-day business operations and is focusing on flagship channel - Zee TV.

Alongside, his younger brother Laxmi N Goel has taken command of group's news channel, Zee News. In an interview with exchange4media a few days back, Goel has outlined his agenda to revive the channels fortune. Would it leave space for Sandeep Goyal remains to be seen.

Insiders also point out that Subhash Chandra himself has been behind the recent strategy to revive Zee TV with latest Bollywood flicks and 'disruptive' FPC change (serials will run from Sunday to Wednesday instead of conventional Monday to Thursday). Recently Chandra also outsourced the ad sales of two group channels - Zee MGM and Zee English. Under the new leadership, the group's focus seems to be on three key channels, Zee TV, Zee News and Zee Cinema. The group had appointed Apoorva Purohit recently, as President - Zee TV, to steer it to a strong number two slot.
