  • Rajya Sabha

Shashi Shekhar Vempati, who was recently appointed as the CEO of Prasar Bharati, is the first non-IAS officer ever to head the public broadcaster.

Rajya Sabha TV is owned and operated by the Upper House of Parliament, and the Vice-President is its chairman.

Last few weeks have witnessed many changes in the Rajya sabha TV particularly at senior level.

According to an order from Rajya Sabha Secretariat dated 12 August, Sappal was asked to handover the charge to Vempati.

Sappal, announcing his resignation on Facebook, thanked Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu for accepting his resignation.

In a move that is being seen as an attempt by the government to consolidate its broadcasting assets, Shashi Shekhar Vempati, the CEO of Prasar Bharati, was on Friday given the additional charge of CEO Rajya Sabha Television. Prior to this, Vempati was the CEO of a digital media company Niti Digital.

Over the years, Rajya Sabha TV has drawn flak from the government for overspending public money and not giving appropriate publicity to Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government's events and schemes. The channel's operations were also under fire for a much higher budget than its counterpart, the LSTV.

Prasar Bharati Chairman A Surya Prakash wished Vempati the very best for this added responsibility in a tweet in which he reproduced the order.
