MUMBAI: Earlier this morning, we broke a story stating that Viacom18 executive vice president and business head of consumer products and integrated network solutions Saugato Bhowmik might be roped in to replace industry veteran Gaurav Gandhi.  

Gandhi was one of the key drivers of the Ambani majority owned network’s OTT service Voot.

Senior sources within Viacom 18 had informed indiantelevision.com that Bhowmik was one of the front runners for the post. There are other names being bandied about, but we would not like to reveal them at this juncture.

Now Viacom18 head of communications Sonia Huria  has issued a denial about this speculation saying: “Such erroneous conjecture is unfounded. We will issue a statement when we have something to announce.”
