Wavemaker, GroupM’s media, content and technology agency, has partnered with creative powerhouse Ogilvy, to create a first of its kind Effectiveness Lab in India. This unique collaboration, between the two WPP agencies will develop data-validated points of view on creating effective communications across consumer interaction platforms. Months after leaving Times Group, Aman Sethi has been appointed as HuffPost India’s Editor-in-Chief. Sethi will supervise all editorial staff and contributors and he will be responsible for all editorial content on HuffPost India. On April 2, 2018, Sethi will take over from the Interim Editor-in-Charge, Rituparna Chatterjee and he will report directly to HuffPost Director, Louise Roug. Reliance Industries Limited (“RIL”) has agreed to subscribe to a 5% equity stake in NYSE listed Eros at a price of USD15 per share, which represents an 18% premium to last closing price. Furthermore, RIL and Eros International Media Limited (“Eros India”) announced that they have agreed to partner in India to jointly produce and consolidate content from across India. The parties will equally invest up to INR 1,000 crores in aggregate (approximately USD150 million) to produce and acquire Indian films and digital originals across all languages. India's unexpected digital growth story has had an unlikely effect on the monetisation of YouTubevideos. The YouTube community in India has seen a 50-60 per cent drop in monetisation over the last couple of years. This comes at a time when video consumption is booming and India and is the second-largest online market in the world with close to 500 million internet users.
