Sanjay Salil is the reason and vision behind MediaGuru. He began as a career journalist with print media and worked with leading Hindi daily newspapers in India. Even as electronic media just entered the Indian terrain in mid-90s, he foresaw the growth trajectory of broadcast. Naturally, he was a part of the growth and launch of India’s first 24*7 private TV news channel, Aaj Tak from the India Today group. He also served as Joint Chief Executive Officer of a duo of television stations before foraying on his own.
Sanjay found MediaGuru in 2003. With his ever growing hands-on experience in media, he led MediaGuru to set up and launch a 24X7 national news & current affairs channel, Channel7 for India’s no. 1 Hindi daily Dainik Jagran. It is now known as IBN 7 and is a part of the TV18 – CNBC group.
His keen business acumen and ethics have helped MediaGuru forge and diversify a group of media companies in these few years since inception. The company today owns independent verticals in technology and system integration, new media ventures, broadcast, media infrastructure, among others, being managed from offices in Delhi, Mumbai, London and Singapore.
