Zee News' Sudhir Chaudhary moves on to form his own venture

He was the Editor-in-Chief and CEO of Zee News, WION, Zee Business, Zee 24 Taas.

Sudhir Chaudhary, Editor-in-Chief and CEO of Zee News has moved on after 15 years with the media organisation. Chaudhary was the editor-in-chief and CEO of Zee News, WION, Zee Business, Zee 24 Taas and hosted the prime-time show Daily News & Analysis on Zee News.

In his resignation to Dr. Subhash Chandra, chairperson, Essel Group, Chaudhary wrote, "This decision of mine is a result of my internal deliberations, which I have been contemplating for quite some time: to start my own enterprise. I assure you that my proposed new venture (if successful) will make you happy and proud of me. My success will be testimony of my learning of more than 15 years (Two stints) at Zee..."

Accepting his resignation, Chandra responded, "I had a couple of meetings with him in last two days and tried to convince him to stay back, but since he is planning to start his own venture by utilising his fan following, I did not want to come in his way of progression. Hence I have accepted it and have wished him great success."

ZEE News reportedly is looking forward to build a pool of new anchors from different clusters. Currently, Rohit Ranjan from ZEE Hindustan is filling in for Chaudhary on his television show.
