India TV has made a slew of senior editorial appointments. The channel has brought on board Samip Rajguru as Executive Editor – Sports, who will assume office on May 4. He joins the channel from Aaj Tak, where he spent close to two decades.
A former football player and sports enthusiast, Rajguru had joined Aaj Tak in 1996 as a production assistant and rose to Associate Editor – Sports. Having worked on several international sports assignments, Rajguru is one of most popular faces in sports anchoring.
Speaking on his move, Rajguru said, “Having spent over 18 years in a wonderful organisation like Aaj Tak taught me how to swim and ride any tide. I am looking forward to a new challenge to win it for India TV now.”
