T.N. Prabhu, who spearheaded 8888 service, puts in his papers at Indiatimes

After a four-year stint with Indiatimes, T.N. Prabhu, Head-Telecom, has put in his papers and will be bidding adieu to the Times Group this week. Prabhu spearheaded the 8888 interactive SMS-based information service launched by Indiatimes. He did not disclose where he is headed.

Asked why he was quitting, Prabhu said, “I have lived up to the challenges and it was time that I looked out for fresh challenges. Most of the business in Indiatimes happened under me and I am very happy with the progress I made here.”

On his tenure, Prabhu said, “It has been an exhilarating experience here and I had total freedom to explore new ideas and implement them. Also, I had a strong cohesive team to support me. Of course, there is always room for a lot more things to be accomplished and I am sure the team will live up to the challenges.”

Prior to Indiatimes, Prabhu was with Cyber Media for 10 years. He began his career with The Hindu in 1989, where he worked for two years.
