Hong Kong – Television news anchor, Anjali Rao, has resigned from her post at CNN International after five years to develop a new integrated lifestyle content platform. “After 15 years of news, I have become anxious to explore new opportunities in television and digital content distribution”, said Rao of her decision to part ways with the news giant. But Rao will not remain off-air for long. Along with manager and business partner, Brett Gullan, the two have joined forces with Hong Kong-based branded-content production company, The Media Village, to develop and produce lifestyle and factual entertainment content exclusively for Rao. Gullan added, “We’re excited by the trends emerging in the digital space. Time-shifted viewing across multiple platforms has changed the way people consume media and we want Anjali to be at the forefront of this in Asia.” Further announcements are expected to be made in 2-3 weeks.
