Aparna Sen steps down as Sananda Editor; to join new Bengali news channel as Creative Director

Aparna Sen, longstanding Editor of Sananda, the leading Bengali magazine for women from the ABP Group, has stepped down. She is joining the new 24x7 Bengali news channel to be launched by the Kolkata-based Xenitis Group of Aamar PC fame as Creative Director. Suman Chattopadhyay, who quit Star Ananda early last month as Executive Producer, will be the Editor of the channel.

Though the launch date has not been announced yet, it is expected to go on air in January 2006.

Apart from being a nationally acclaimed film director and actor, and a well-known name in intellectual circles, Sen, or ‘Rinadi’ to those who know her well, is a prolific writer and an accomplished journalist. When contacted, Sen, however, declined to comment on her new role.

Said Chattopadhyay, “Rinadi’s joining will provide a cutting edge to the channel and add tremendous value, thereby raising its equity to a level that will be an envy for any news organisation.”

Meanwhile, Rajat Roy, Associate Editor-News, Ananda Bazar Patrika, is also joining the channel as Executive Producer.

Interestingly, the name of Bijit Basu, former legal head of ABP Group, is now appearing as the Editor of Sananda. It is understood that this is an interim arrangement till a replacement for Sen is found.
