NDTV Media's Rajnath Kamath joins CNBC as director sales

MUMBAI: Another defection from NDTV to CNBC-TV18. Rajnath Kamath, NDTV Media's vice-president ad sales, has put in his papers and is moving to CNBC-TV18 Network as director sales.

While his services will be used across the network, Kamath's principal focus will, however, be on Broadcast News, the new venture that ex-NDTV stalwarts Rajdeep Sardesai and Sameer Manchanda have floated in collaboration with Raghav Bahl's TV18 Group.

Kamath, who will be based out of Delhi, will be reporting directly in to CNBC-TV18 vice-president sales & marketing B Saikumar.

Kamath joined NDTV Media three years ago as part of the core team that went along with chief executive Raj Nayak when he quit Star India. Before his stint with NDTV Meida, Kamath was 10 years at Star India in different ad sales capacities.

As regards a replacement for Kamath at NDTV Media, information available with indicates that no one will be taking his place, at least for the near term. Kamath's ambit of responsibilities will reportedly be re-allocated among the three regional ad sales heads within NDTV Media - Rohit Gopakumar, Vikas Kanchandani and Hemant Arora.
