KOMMINENI ALL SET TO JOIN SAKSHI BANDWAGON !!!!!

After his tour from AJ to NTV to TV5 it appears that Komminneni is set to make SAKSHI his final destination. The discussions between Sakshi and Kommineni have been fruitful and Sakshi TV will start featuring Kommineni every morning. It is being said that Komminnei is irked with the present Tv5 management's decision to bring Karim as CEO, along with his young (6th?) wife into the channel. So dear future veiwers wait for Sakshi Tv to mesmerise you with our dear old Kommineni.

Also, rumours are rounding that the former CEO of TV5, Mr.Siva Ram Prasad is going to start a NEWS Channel. He wants to be one step before to TV5 and he is going to name the channel as TV4.

(Oh god, please give me a break. A day will come where everyone start watching DD news for peace of mind).

the telugu television channel industry has really f@#&ed up the meaning of the word CEO. now it is not Chief executive officer... it is Channel Experiments On. One channel has Karim as CEO another channel has Geeta as CEO. Look at the stature of the CEO's of other channels like star news, zee news, aaj tak, etc., There is a meaning in calling RAviprakash a CEO, but now he needs to change his designation after Karim and Geeta becoming CEOs. I think they has asked for the designation of CEO just because they think that they are nothing short of Ravi Prakash.

I dont know how the new channels are going to pay hefty amount to their employees. When established channels like ETV are not in a position paying one third of the salaries offering by new channels, how can these channels make money out of it. on the otherside why the ETV group is not paying sufficient amount to employees when new channels are paying double or triple amount than ETV. I think the ETV management is not in a position to share it's profit with their employees. many efficient persons like sasthry are leaving the organisation, when the etv group learn lessons. now a days the quality of the etv2 bulletins have came down heavily. gone are the days when there was a monopoly in the media. Now eenadu punadhulu kadhuluthunnai. ETV is no longer number one and eenadu circulation is also came down. It is high time for ramoji group to think. Otherwise toughdays ahead for ramoji group

Sitara in August

Asianet's Sitara will go on air on 15th August. However, the test run ( soft launch ) starts on 3rd August itself. Initially 5 to 6 news bulletins will run in the same channel until the entertainment dept. is fully geared up with 18 hours of content. In the meanwhile, News Dept will also gear up for 24 Hours Channel

Surya to takeover Satya

Satya TV promoter Mr. Kasani Gnaneswar has decided to sell away his TV to Mr. Nookarapu Surya Prakasa rao, the promoter of Surya daily. The modalities are being worked out and an agreement will be signed within a week as per reliable information.

Salaries issue comes up in IBF

Channel Heads attended the meeting held by the Indian Broadcasting Foundation on 9th at the new premises of Maa TV ( Near State Art Gallery, Jubilee Hills ) raised the issue of "unusual hike in staff salaries" and expressed serious concern. The national level organisation formed to protect the interest of the industry has held its regional meeting. Apart from other problems which need to be brought to the notice of the Union Government for immediate redressal, some of the members have raised the issue of the recent hike in salaries. Owner of a news channel trying hard for the third place pleaded for the intervention of the Foundation and suggested formulation of certain guidelines. Some of the members shared their anguish but finally the Foundation was of the opinion that the tendency was out of sheer competition and this cannot be solved by an organisation like IBF.

Zee Telugu News, hope of the left out

Most of the ETV2 journos have opted for Sakshi along with their leader Mr. Sastry. However, only his loyalists could get the opportunity. Some of the remaining staff are Ramoji's loyalists and there is a third group which is neither Ramoji's staunch supporting team nor Sastry's. They want to come out but the only hope is Zee Telugu and are waiting for the opportunity. The working conditions are same in both the channels and that too most of the existing Zee Telugu staff are also from ETV including its Head Mr. Sailesh Reddy. It is learnt that Zee Telugu is busy renovating a building close to the existing one and an advertisement is likely in a week or so. The discussion now is that wheteher 5 day week policy is applicable to the news channel or not. If it is applicable, the staff requirement will enhance by 15 percent.

IT's NOW THE SALARY WAR IN AP MEDIA

TV9 took its salary hikes to upto 300 % as they got a fresh investment of Rs. 500 crores from a foriegn investor. This has send shock waves across the media sector in the state. Other channels are finding it very difficult to run their show now with the sal what they are giving to thier employees. In short overnight the channels have become unviable to their owners. All of them except Sakshi are in a fix as their salary reviews are also due now. For News Papers the cost of newsprint has shot up tremendously. This could probably sound the death kneel to many of the news paper brands. So deal all freinds and fellow bloggers it remains to be seen as to how many will remain in this business and how many overturn their boards.....

Hats up to Ravi Prakash. Print media YS Jagan, Electronic media lo Ravi Prakash thanks on behalf off telugu Journs. telugu journs kuda salary gurinchi society lo cheppu kune level ku thesu kocharu. This effect all other news channels. tv9 salary iachinatha kuda sakshi iache paristhe ledhu. so electronic media lo Ist Rank TV9.

TTV to challenge the TV Journos !

Recruitments in TTV are at a slow pace despite the fact that they are willing to take hands. The salaries offered are very not upto the market standards and most of the people approached them are not happy with the amounts they are ready to give. Even key posts like Chief Technical Officer (CTO) could not be filled up so far. They have tried the CTO of TV5 but failed to attract him. For programming, they couldnt get a person from the TV medium and finally settled with a person from FM Radio. The only problem they were able to solve was the appointment of Input Editor. The simple procedure followed was to just eliminate the post itself.

After Kranti's refusal, they tried some staff from Maa TV for their Reporting section but could not impress them with the meagre salary. Their efforts to convince the tv reporters by telling them that this boom doesnt sustain for a long term turned futile. Mr. Peddi Sreedhar, incharge of Production department in TV5, who has been in contact with both Sakshi and TTV has agreed to join TTV only after he was denied a place in Saakshi. On knowing that Saakshi offered his friend Mr. Akbar Rs.70,000 for the same job, the heart burning is unbearable for Sreedhar.

The print giant Mr. Ramachandramurthy is unable to digest the trend and thinking out a plan to come out of this problem. It is likely that he will offer salaries on par with TV9 and Sakshi but the total number of staff will be limited to see that the budget doesnt cross its limit. The only other option left out was to recruit hands from the print and show the world that print people can make miracles in TV.

Sivaram Prasad to launch a News Channel -N స్టూడియో, one స్టూడియో

Yet another news channel ! Yes it is true !! TV5's former MD Mr. Sivaram Prasad caught hold of a potential investor and is going to launch another news channel. He had to quit TV5 two months ago due to differences with Mr. BR Naidu, Chairman.During these two months he was busy with his own 'Channel 4' work and at the same time searched for the potential investors. On finding a suitable person, he has finally decided to launch a news channel. It is also learnt that the investor was already working on an entertainment channel project for the last one year. It is yet to be known whether the idea of Entertainment channel still continues even after the news channel idea is floated or not.

Once the decision was taken, Mr. Sivaram prasad is said to have started sounding his lieutenants in TV5. One of his close associates in TV5 has already resigned and many have been thinking to quit. This will be a big blow to Mr.Naidu since cream ( if one believes in it ) of the channel ( not the upper strata including Kommineni, Kandula, Kareem and Venkata Krishna ) will be migrating to Sakshi and to Sivaram Prasad's new channel. However, Mr. Naidu is confident of his anchors and what he considers the four pillars - Kommineni, Kandula, Kareem and Venkata Krishna. This confidence is in such a way that he doesnt want to hike salaries of his staff

Ravi Prakash, Is it ethical ?

One of the employees of TV9 was beaten black and blue before being handed over to the police. The allegation was that he has stolen some software from TV9. The real "grave" mistake the person has committed was to resign the channel to join some other channel . If this sort of distortion of facts is allowed, every channel will start threatening their staff to see that none of them leave the channel. Employees of all the channels have to take this issue seriously. We don't support stealing of software but foisting cases with a malafide intention has to be stopped.

In fact, only people in top positions resort to such practices like stealing software from the channels they worked earlier.Mr. Satish Babu did the same thing and even today he bargains for a higher salary on the basis of the "library" he has. Mr. Ravi Prakash, CEO, TV9 himself has stolen software from Gemini TV. He took away news clips from Gemini and showing them even today. He has also stolen film content and sold it to Sneha TV in USA, in which he is a partner. Mr. Ravi Prakash, do you have an ethical right to question your staff member even if he has really stolen

TV5 thrown back, TV9 limps back

The latest ratings for the week 22nd June to 28th June 2008 shows that NTV has recovered and pushed back TV5. However, TV5 is showing an improvement in its market share. But this is part of the general trend exhibited by all the news channels. TV9 too recovered considerably but not doing well in the towns and rural areas.Let us see the data: ( The figures in brackets indicate previous week's position.)


HYDERABAD CITY :

In Hyderabad city, TV9 got a share of 5.70 ( 2.93 ) percent while ETV2 got 2.6 (2.1) percent, NTV got 1.45 ( 0.91) percent, TV5 got 1.53 ( 1.38 ) percent and Gemini News got 0.18 ( 0.20 ) percnt. This clearly shows that all the channels in general have improved considerably well. At the same time, TV5 is still ahead of NTV in Hyderabad city. TV9 almost doubled its share.


VIJAYAWADA AND VIZAG :

TV9 got a share of 4.03 (3.65 ) percent while ETV got 2.18 (1.7) percent. NTV got 1.99 (1.72) percent, TV5 got 1.38 (1.23) percent and Gemini News got 0.44 (0.41) percent. In this particular segment, the rate of performance of all the channels has increased almost uniformly.


TOWNS ( like vizianagaram, chirala and khammam ) :

TV9 got 2.74 (2.6) percent share while ETV2 got 1.72 (1.38) percent, NTV got 0.85 ( 0.82) percent, TV5 got 0.78 (0.65) percent and Gemini News got 0.49 (0.37) percent. TV5 has to feel sorry for the share since it always boasts of its district news. Seems people rejected these bulletins.There is inconsistency in NTV performance. Interestingly, ETV2 is liked more by the urban population than the rural.Overall performance has improved slightly.


TOTAL AP STATE :
