After almost a year as Consulting Editor of IBN, Bhupendra Chaubey is back as the Executive Editor and 'political face' of CNN IBN. Chaubey had quit in November last year from his role as Executive Editor. He had since appeared regularly on shows on IBN and also tried his hand at other projects. It seems however that he his back at his seat in the news channel. Here is the full text of the email sent by Rahul Joshi, CEO of Network 18.
Dear all,It's been a little over three weeks at Network 18 and a privilege to work with Team CNN IBN. I hope to see more of you in the weeks ahead.In the meantime, it's my pleasure to once again put Bhupendra Chaubey back in the Hot Seat. A founding member of this newsroom, Bhupen combines his flair for news with an amazing gift of the gab, two essential qualities to succeed in news television. Add to that his great political acumen and the rare ability to be bilingual, it's a no brainer to request Bhupen to lead the newsroom and be the political face of CNN IBN as its Executive Editor.He will work closely with Radha and help in rebuilding and repositioning brand IBN. I will also use him for other Network 18 projects from time to time. To begin with, he will lead the Bihar coverage and add cut and thrust to our election specials.Please join me in wishing Bhupen all the best in his Second Coming.Cheers.Rahul
