As part of the changes, Rahul Kumar Shaw has been instated as the chief revenue officer (CRO) for TV Today Network. He was earlier the CRO of India Today TV and business head radio. Shaw will oversee ad sales and all revenue opportunities across the Hindi cluster which includes channels like Aaj Tak, DAT and Tez.

This information came to Indian Television.com at the time when chief revenue officer of the Hindi channels (Aaj Tak, Delhi Aaj Tak and Tej) cluster Rajnish Rikhy has stepped down from his post. Rikhy was promoted as CRO from the network’s senior VP Ad Sales and business head last month. “TV Today Network is a respectful brand and the company is well poised. There is no reason behind my exit. I just want to pursue other career opportunities”, says Rikhy.

Prior to joining TV Today Network, Rikhy served at BCCL New Delhi as vice president(R).
