IN10 Media Network has appointed Anup Chandrasekharan as the Chief Operating Officer of regional content to lead its expansion in the southern markets.

He added, “Having made a significant positive impression along the journey, I am delighted to start a new challenge at IN10 Media Network and look forward to contributing to its growth story.”
