Chintamani Rao has been appointed CEO of Times Global Broadcasting – Bennett, Coleman & Co Ltd’s broadcast arm that owns and operates English news channel Times Now.
Rao replaces Sunil Lulla, who has resigned as of Thursday and is joining production house and soon to be broadcaster Miditech.
When contacted, Rao would only say, “I will reveal my plans within the next four weeks.”
Times Group officials were unavailable for comment at the time of filing this report.
It was last Friday that it was announced that Rao had resigned from the post of CEO of Rajat Sharma’s Independent News Service (INS), which owns and operates Hindi news channel India TV. A media industry veteran with over 30 years in the business, Rao joined India TV in September 2005 from Universal McCann Integrated Communications, where he was president.
