Priya Mukherjee to spearhead Distribution at Arnab Goswami's Republic

Priya Mukherjee joins the top management team of Republic, Arnab Goswami’s new TV and digital media tech company, as Head of Distribution. She moves from Bloomberg Quint where she was the TV distribution head. As the much-awaited news channel prepares to make its debut, Mukherjee will look after the entire distribution portfolio as Republic will be available across India and international markets.

Goswami has recruited Vikas Khanchandani as the CEO of Republic and is in the process of announcing more names for his top level management, to be part of his editorial and digital team, who would make his new venture a comprehensive set-up for the new media landscape. Republic will be an independent platform for journalists and content professionals. The venture aspires to create a movement that will put the power of journalism into the hands of the citizens, and will be India’s first footprint into global journalism. 

Commenting on Mukherjee joining his team, Goswami, Founder of Republic, said, “We are very excited to get Priya onboard our growing Republic team. She’s an exceptional professional with an outstanding track record. She is an emerging young leader in the television business. Priya will work closely with our CEO Vikas Khanchandani to take us into every home in the country.”

On her new role, Mukherjee said, “I am excited to be part of Republic, which I believe will play a significant role to revolutionise the news and current affairs genre cutting across segments of viewers and the public. This is going to be a wonderful journey.”

Mukherjee brings with her a wide experience of 17 years in the media industry with achievements in broadcasting and distribution operations. She has established an impressive track record of being part of launch teams of television channels across India, while successfully helping them make inroads in their genres. Mukherjee has built a stellar career with organisations such as Discovery Channel, One Alliance, Network 18 and Den Network.
