MUMBAI: If you place a call to Singapore's MediaCorp hq, you'd better be armed with this report. The multimedia firm has gone in for a sweeping restructuring of its senior management. The group is involved in TV and radio (both in entertainment and news), and newspaper publishing.

Among the changes announced include:

* Shaun Seow, currently the CEO of MediaCorp News, will be promoted to Group Managing Director. Under the new portfolio, Seow will be in charge of MediaCorp News Pte Ltd, MediaCorp TV12 Pte Ltd and Group Communications.

He will oversee the news function of the Group, covering TV, radio and newspapers. He remains a Director and Editorial Advisor of MediaCorp Press.

With the reorganisation of key staff, we look forward to do even better as we focus to meet our content-driven strategy," said Wong.
