MUMBAI: Prashant Sanwal, director of all the Zee Network's regional language Alpha channels, is moving on.
Sanwal, who put in his papers at Zee on 31 March, is taking up a posting in Sri Lanka early next month as CEO of Maharaja Broadcasting. Maharaja owns and operates two terrestrial TV stations and three leading FM radio stations in the Emerald Isle. Sanwal will be based in the Lankan capital Colombo.
Sirasa is the Sinhala channel of the network and the other is Maharaja Television (MTV), which is a Tamil and English language channel. English programming airs on MTV post 9 pm.
Before his stint at Zee, Sanwal was vice-president at Sony's MAX channel, with an aborted period in between the two postings as one of the four directors of the stillborn MAK (Manoranjan, Aur Kya) Network.
