Former Times Television Network CEO Avinash Kaul has been appointed as the CEO of IBN Network, reports IndianTelevision.com. He will be taking over from Network18 COO Ajay Chacko who was overlooking IBN Network's operations after Dilip Venkatraman quit in August last year. In this role, Kaul will be responsible for the day-to-day operational, strategic and financial management of the company's general news network which includes CNN IBN, IBN7 and IBN Lokmat. He has also apparently been given mandate for the consolidation and diversification of TV18’s general news network. Kaul had quit as the CEO of Times Television Network earlier this year after a four year stint with the company. In this role, he was managing the group's television channels like Times Now, ET Now and Zoom TV. Prior to this, he was the CEO of Sahara One for a short seven months stint and the Executive Vice President of NDTV Media for about seven and half years. He's also worked at Star India, Discovery Communications and Mindshare. Last month, FirstPost CEO Durga Raghunath was promoted as the CEO of Network18 Digital (previously Web18). She had taken over from Lakshni Narasimhan, who was moved into a corporate role.
