“History is history. I only care about what’s coming next.” So says Vineet Jain, the managing director of BCCL, also known as the Times Group. BCCL is India’s largest media conglomerate, with revenues of about Rs100 billion (about US$1.5 billion) per year and with more than 13,000 employees. It publishes the Times of India, the world’s largest-selling English-language daily (reaching more than 7.6 million readers), and the Economic Times, the second-largest-circulation English-language business newspaper (the Wall Street Journal is the largest). It also owns 40 FM radio stations, 15 online radio stations, 15 magazines, a number of popular television channels (including Times Now, ET Now, Movies Now, and Zoom TV), and live-event businesses such as the Miss India Pageant and the Filmfare Awards (the “Oscars of India”).
