Sanjay Pugalia made President & Editorial Director at The Quint & Bloomberg Quint

Sanjay Pugalia has joined as President and Editorial Director of both The Quint and Bloomberg Quint. Pugalia joins from Network18, where he was editor in Chief of CNBC Awaaz and CNBC Bajar. A source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told MediaNama that Pugalia joins the company today, and will report to its founder Raghav Bahl. Pugalia and Bahl have had a long association: Pugalia, who has been a journalist for over 25 years, was with Network18, Bahl’s previous venture, for 12 years, and quit only recently. Prior to this, he has worked with Star News, Zee News, Aaj Tak, Navbharat Times, BBC Radio and Business Standard. The Quint is also available in Hindi, launched in October last year.

This is the latest in the moves from Network18 to Bahl’s new ventures. Recently, Maneka Doshi, who had begun her career as a journalist with Bahl in TV18, was appointed Managing Editor of Bloomberg Quint. Bloomberg Quint is a joint venture between The Quint and Bloomberg, with both entities planning to invest Rs 100 crore in the venture: 74% of the stake held by and 26% by Bloomberg. The agreement will last for 10 years, according to Mint.

The Quint also has a partnership with Da Vinci media to launch a kids TV Channel.

When the Quint began, Bahl appeared to be focused entirely on the Internet and social media. Now, it appears, that given the challenges online (infinite fragmentation of content), Bahl appears to be focused on doing what he knows best.
