Bloomberg TV India today announced the appointment of Siddharth Zarabi as Executive Editor. Zarabi has overall experience of 17 years in print and TV business journalism, and he will assume responsibilities from Vivek Law effective 1st November, 2014.

At the end of a term of four years as Editor at Bloomberg TV, Law has decided to pursue his personal interests, and the shareholders and the entire team wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Zarabi in his prior assignment was National News Editor of CNBC TV18, with the responsibility of driving reporting teams nationally, apart from leading special news programming initiatives on the channel.

I am extremely grateful to the shareholders for having reposed the faith in me to lead this fabulous team. These have been the four most amazing years of my 21 year journalistic career. We have together created an outstanding business channel. I have no doubt in my mind that this great product will only grow and grow in the coming months and years.”

Assuming charge of his new responsibilities, Zarabi said, “I am extremely excited to take on this new role as Executive Editor of Bloomberg TV India. I am confident that with the credible platform already created by Vivek and the entire editorial team, and with the strong support of Bloomberg, the world's most influential news organization, the channel and its related products will further strengthen their leadership position in India, and deliver increasing value to their target ‘Influencer” audience.”

Zarabi will be responsible to lead the editorial function across all verticals, and he will work closely with the entire team to further enhance Bloomberg TV India’s platform for coverage of all aspects of the Indian economy, banking and finance, trade and industry, capital and FX markets, and more.
