Samir Ahluwalia will replace the outgoing CEO Alok Agrawal. Currently Ahluwalia is the Business Head and Interactive and Consulting Editor at Zee Business. Sources close to the development informed exchange4media that Ahluwalia will take charge as CEO and he will also head Zee Media Corp for an interim period.
Ahluwalia is associated with Zee News from the last 17 years. He joined the organisation in 1997.
It may be recalled that Alok Agrawal who joined Zee News in October 2012 has recently put in his papers as CEO of Zee News. He is joining Reliance Industries (RIL). Incidentally, RIL has recently also brought on board two other senior media professionals – Gautam Chikermane and BV Rao.
Agrawal announced his move on Twitter by tweeting: “Delighted to share my move to Team #RIL. Thank you Team @ZeeNews”.
