Enter?: Barun Das

Exit: Ashok Venkatramani

Senior mediaperson and former Zee News CEO Barun Das is set to take over as CEO/MD of Zee Media Corporation (ZMCL), according to an internal grapevine. This follows the resignation of Ashok Venkatramani as Managing Director as he has “decided to pursue interest outside the Company”, as per filings with the stock exchanges on Tuesday (July 9). An announcement on Das’s appointment is likely to happen today.

Das, an alumnus of IIT Madras and IIM Calcutta had a successful stint of five-and-a-half years with Zee News, as the company was called earlier, from September 2007 to December 2012. Recently, Das did a short consulting stint with Harvest TV. Venkatramani had joined ZMCL in July 2018 after long stints at ABP News and Hindustan Unilever.
