For senior journalist Sandeep Bamzai the year 2019 started on a great note as he joins IANS as CEO and Editor-in-chief. “My domain expertise is both on the revenue side and editorial side. And it is an extension of my last two jobs, in Mail Today I was the Profit Centre Head and in Financial Chronicle I was the Chief Operating Officer and Editor-in-Chief,” Bamzai told exchange4media. 

An elated Bamzai informed, “This is a first stint in wire services for me. I have worked in magazines, newspapers, TV and even digital. So, it’s a new experience, I did a town hall meeting at IANS recently and I told them that content is the only differentiator and we have to produce original content, and only then we can get prominence across various platforms.”

Bamzai is also working on his fourth book. “My fourth book will be out in July or August. The book titled, Map Makers, is based on Jawaharlal Nehru, Vallabhbhai Patel and Lord Mountbatten who actually foiled the Indian princess and created the union of India as we know of now. The book will be published by Rupa and company. I have also been commissioned by Pramod Kapoor of Roli Books for my fifth book, which will see the light of the day later this year or by 2020, which is a pictorial history of Kashmir.”
