RadioCity 91 FM Bangalore changes tune, gets new Station and Programme Heads

Close on the heels of RadioCity Bangalore Station Head Bhaskar Dutt's move back to the visual effects industry, Programme Director Nisha Narayanan too has put in her papers. To fill up the vacant posts Tanishq's Ruchira Puri has moved in as Station Head, while Karthik Vaidyanathan, also from Tanishq, will join as the Programme Director soon.

After a year at RadioCity 91 FM, Station Head Bhaskar Dutt has moved back to his earlier employer Tata Elxsi Ltd as Head - Marketing (International) and Domestic Sales of Visual Computing Labs (VCL), from October 2005.

"My focus would be to establish and position the Brand VCL globally at the top of-the-line level that it has taken and kick-start business in the domestic market for VFX, Animation, Gaming and TVCs," he said.

Program Director, Nisha Narayanan, who had joined Radio City a year ago, also confirmed her move from RadioCity. Said she, "I plan to move back to Delhi as a consultant. I have always been doing things from a national perspective, and one of the reasons I shifted to Bangalore was to understand the South Indian market. I plan to get into end-to-end consulting for the radio industry, based in Delhi."

Ruchira Puri, the new Station Head, came on board on September 1. Her previous assignment was with Tanishq, where she was Head-Marketing, Strategy Management and Design.

Having worked with Titan and Britannia earlier, this marks her entry into the radio segment for the first. She said, "The entire radio industry is sort of on the rise. It would be a challenge to get into it now."

Karthik Vaidyanathan, also from Tanishq, would move in as the new Programming Head, shared Puri. His previous assignments include Radio, in the form of Worldspace and Sony Music.
