Mohan Nair, CEO of Mathrubhumi TV and Kappa TV, has bid adieu to the organisation after a stint of over nine years. Tuesday is his last working day at the organisation.

Nair is yet to disclose his next professional move.

It was under Nair’s leadership that the Kerala-based media group entered television news with the launch of Mathrubhumi TV. In February 2013, Nair expanded Mathrubhumi’s portfolio with the launch of Kappa TV, a Malayalam youth music channel.

Commenting on his move, Nair says: “It was professionally a rewarding and personally satisfying nine years at one of India’s oldest media houses. I thank the board and Managing Director Shreyams Kumar for giving me an opportunity to create and launch two unique properties, Mathrubhumi News and Kappa TV. Both channels have tasted success in one of India’s most competitive TV markets.”

Nair joined Mathrubhumi from Sri Lanka-based Maharaja TV where he was CEO. Prior to that, he was COO at Asianet Communications. Nair has also worked for over a decade at The Economic Times where his last role was as Senior Editor and Bureau Chief, Mumbai.
