India TV announces new appointments, gears up for Elections 2014 & beyond

In order to further strengthen its team for Election news and programming, India TV has announced yet another round of senior level appointments.

Amitabh, after spending 18 years with Aaj Tak, joins as Senior Executive Editor. Output team is also joined by Pranay Yadav as Executive Editor, who returns to India TV after a stint in TV9, and Shivendra  Kumar as Deputy Executive Editor, who was with ABP News.

The news gathering team of India TV is now led by Executive Editor Rahul Choudhry, who also joins in from Aaj Tak. The team is supported by Political Editor Sukesh Ranjan, who was with IBN7. Choudhry is also joined by his Aaj Tak colleagues Shamsher Singh as Editor Current Affairs, Prateek Trivedi as Associate Editor, and Sundeep Sonwalker as Deputy Editor.

Over the last couple of years, from being skewed slightly towards being popular, the content style of the leading channel has changed to in-depth coverage and deep-delving analysis.

The same will be taken further with Rajat Sharma, Editor-in-Chief, India TV himself taking to the prime time with the flagship show ‘Aaj Ki Baat - Rajat Sharma Ke Saath’. Sharma, who resumes a daily news show after a gap of over four years, said, “The India TV newsroom is fully charged to capture the excitement of the upcoming General Elections. Extensive plans have been made to report, analyse and present the battle for the next Lok Sabha to our viewers.”

“Our viewers can rest assured of most accurate and responsible news reporting, which will further cement our leadership position in Hindi News genre.” said QW Naqvi, Editorial Director, India TV.

Commenting on the new appointments, Ritu Dhawan, MD & CEO, India TV said, “When the channel announced the appointment of QW Naqvi as the Editorial Director in October, it was always on cards that the content team will be further strengthened to gear up for the biggest event in news genre – the General Elections slated for 2014 – to begin with.”

“All such efforts are a testimony to our commitment to broadcast a perfect mix of news, views and analysis to our ever-evolving audiences and we are sure that we will be able to create and maintain a perfect content mix,” she added, while hinting at more defining announcements, beyond appointments, to follow soon.
