MUMBAI: India’s leading national news channel, ABP News will be the first Indian media organisation in the country to match up to global standards by undertaking major resource restructuring in its editorial department. ABP News is implementing this step to better utilise its talent, empower their editorial to drive more accountability, and to ensure greater clarity in roles.

The existing hierarchy within the newsroom is undergoing a makeover. This move will ensure the channel is more audience-centric and responsive towards its consumers.

The roles in the organisation will be more defined wherein, Rajnish Ahuja will be the senior vice president, news and programming; Sanjay Bragta as the vice president, news gathering; Arun Nautiyal as the vice president, news production, Sumit Awasthi as the vice president, planning and special coverage; Vibha Kaul Bhatt as the associate vice president, programme production and Anju Juneja will be the associate vice president, special projects.

Furthermore, a new role of associate vice president, production and operations will be introduced to work in partnership with newsroom and technology teams. Nitin Sukhija will be heading the same.

Speaking on the development, ABP News Network CEO Avinash Pandey  said: “Employee empowerment is a core aspect of our organisation. This transformation in the Editorial structure is a breakthrough moment for us and will revolutionise the way newsrooms operate in India. The newly-designated units will act as a catalyst for development in the Indian media landscape and we are extremely proud to lead the way towards this much-needed change.”
