If we check the job history of heads of leading medias ,many of them came from non broadcasting sector. Star India country head Sanjay Gupta was earlier worked in Airtel and Hindustan Uniliver.

No wonder their ratings are great. Other than sports. What do they even have? They have limited latest movies. GEC's content is so poor. No other country would syndicate most shows. Even sports business will bring them loss in long run.

Nothing wrong in this, he will have dedicated team working under his leadership to take care of different departments. His job will be to see after smooth functioning for putting together good products. Being from FMCG is infact an advantage and media companies prefer people from this background, those having experience in it have much better understanding of consumer choice/behaviour and even know how to attractively package/market stuff . Above all he can also help channels get brands on board by positioning to them content matching the core premise or value / present benefit of reaching target audience in a better manner

New person realise that you can't actually sell Doraemon merchandise as it's not Disney property.
