Joy Chakraborthy to move on from TV Today

 In a short span of just over seven months, Joy Chakraborthy, CEO, TV Today and Radio Today, has decided to resign from his duties at the company. Chakraborthy is serving his notice period and TV Today is still in the process of finding a replacement for the role.

India Today Group’s CEO Ashish Bagga has confirmed the development to exchange4media. 

Citing his reason to leave, Chakraborthy stated that he wanted to move his working base back to Mumbai with his family, which was difficult to do as the CEO of TV Today Group. “The CEO has to be based where the key action is and for TV Today it was here in Delhi. In the last eight months, my stay in Delhi had been very difficult for my family and for me. Eventually it had led to immense pressure. Since my previous job also saw me travelling frequently, I had not anticipated that it would be so problematic,” said Chakraborthy in a conversation with exchange4media.

Chakraborthy had joined the TV Today in December 2011. Prior to TV Today, he was with Zee Entertainment Enterprises as Executive Director – Revenue and Niche Channels. He had joined Zee in March 2005 to head the ad sales function of the company, which was then known as Zee Telefilms. Over the years, he was made the Chief Revenue Officer and Chief Operating Officer for Niche Channels before taking on his current role of ED for Revenue and Niche Channels. Before ZEE, he was working with STAR India and BCCL.
