DNA’s KU Rao joins HT as consultant

06 Mar,2013

By A Correspondent


KU Rao has joined Hindustan Times as a consultant. Mr Rao had joined DNA in October 2006 as CEO. In November 2012, he stepped down as CEO and was assigned a corporate role in the Zee Group as incharge of the Siti Cable business after former Times of India group President Dr Bhaskar Das took charge of the Zee’s news business late last year.


Mr Rao, who joined DNA from Shell, helped the transition from the paper’s management by the Dainik Bhaskar group to Zee in 2008. An MBA alumni from Andhra University, Mr Rao commands a varied experience of 30 years in media and management.


Mr Rao joins HT at a time when it has also engaged Sujoy Ghosh, former Director at Bennett Coleman & Co Ltd as a Consultant.


Although MxMIndia couldn’t reach HT for a comment, it is learnt that while Mr Rao will work full-time with the HT Media, Mr Ghosh’s engagement is restricted to that of an external consultant for sales.
