divorce rumours have been buzzing like bees for some time
now. That Star India and news content provider the Prannoy
Roy-headed New Delhi Television Ltd (NDTV) are parting ways
is clear and all that remains is for this week's official
announcement of the same.
up the news of this breakup is the confirmation of gossip
that Star India has zoomed in on a head honcho for Star
News, an operation that will be run inhouse, with assistance
from other news providers. She is none other than former
Sony Entertainment programming boss and Channel Nine CEO
Ravina Raj Kohli.
between the Kohli and the Star India management have been
on for some time now. Kohli has also been involved in setting
up her own company Sundial Communications, a company she
is keen on developing into a media powerhouse.
How and where Kohli takes the Star news channel only time
will tell, but there is no denying the lady has chutzpah.
It is more than a coincidence that hardballed Australian
media tycoons of the likes of Kerry Packer (in her Channel
Nine Gold days) and now Rupert Murdoch are more than convinced
of her credentials.
