Sanjay Pugalia is moving on after 12 years with Network18 as Editor of CNBC Awaaz and CNBC Bajar.
Rahul Joshi CEO News and Group Editor-in-Chief Network 18, also announced Alok Joshi as the Managing Editor of CNBC Awaaz and CNBC Bajar, and that Dharmendra Singh has been elevated to Deputy Managing Editor in an internal email sourced by exchange4media.
“Sanjay has put the channels firmly on the map of business and general news. I say both business and general because while CNBC Awaaz continues to be a barometer of stock market coverage for millions of viewers in the morning band, it’s also known for heated political debates in the evening. This powerful combination of business and politics makes CNBC Awaaz a formidable player amongst the influence set and the masses alike. On behalf of Team Network18, I would like to thank Sanjay for his invaluable contribution and for leaving behind a legacy that we are all truly proud of.
What he leaves behind is not only a formidable market share of 70% plus week after week but also a top team of professionals that’s the envy of most media houses in the country. As a result, we’re passing on the baton to his able deputies Dharmendra Singh and Alok Joshi.” Said Joshi in the email.
