Multi-Screen Media Makes Changes To Senior Management

Post the appointment of NP Singh as CEO of Multi-Screen Media, the Sony owned company has decided to reshuffle its management:

– Sneha Rajani, will be Deputy President & Head, MSM Motion Pictures. She will head MSM’s push into the movie production business, and will continue to head film acquisitions. She has been with MSM for 15 years now, and was instrumental building MSM’s cricket properties, including rights for the ICC World Cup and IPL.
– Nachiket Pantvaidya, who has recently joined the company, takes over as Sr. Executive Vice President & Business Head, Sony Entertainment Television (SET). He was previously the business head of STAR Plus, and had been at MSM from 1996 to 2004.
– Anooj Kapoor will be Senior EVP and Business Head, SAB TV, and also a new initiative in the Hindi entertainment space.

Also keep in mind that MSM is fighting a court case in the Delhi High Court, against ESPNCricinfo and Cricbuzz, claiming rights over Cricket scores and preventing them from providing live commentary online, whether text based or audio. This is why scorecards and Cricket updates are delayed on the websites today.

Sony Pictures Television backed Multi-Screen Media Private Limited (MSM) operates TV channels such as SET, MAX, SAB, PIX, MIX, SIX, as well as the digital property Sony LIV. Multi-Screen Media has a distribution alliance called the One Alliance, which includes channels from the TV Today network, the Times of India Group TV Channels, Discovery group channels, among others. In 2012, Sony Pictures Entertainment struck a deal to buy out the 32.39% shares in Multi Screen Media Private Ltd, owned by Grandway Global Holdings Limited and Atlas Equifin Private Limited for $271 million.
