MUMBAI: Jawahar Goel, younger brother of Essel Group chairman Subhash Chandra Goel and also MD of Dish TV DTH has been appointed as editor-in-chief of Zee Media Network.

He has been "entrusted with the overall responsibility of editorial affairs of the network" according to an official email sent from Subhash Chandra's office to top executives of the conglomerate.

Goel would be assisted by current MD Ashok Venkatramani in operational and strategic matters for the network. In addition to being appointed editor in chief of Zee Media Network, Goel will also be the chairman of the media network's 'Editorial Governing Council' which directs the main editorial policy of the network.

All editors of the national and regional channels would report to Goel on matters regarding editorial and policy guidelines for their respective news channels.

According to the reports, the email mentions, "As an organisation, we should also be watchful of our costs and therefore as part of the ongoing budgeting exercise, he would also be responsible for driving cost optimisation in the network in order to create a more lean and efficient organisation which is nimble on its feet and create value for its shareholders."

This is Goel’s second stint at editorial operations at Zee Media. He also played a similar role in the early avatar of Zee TV, the news channel that started its broadcast in the early 90s.

Zee Media Network comprises leading Hindi national news channel Zee news, an array of regional news channels, an English news channel WION and print media publication DNA.
