MEDIA WATCH BRIEF
Prabhu Chawla's name used to appear as Editorial Director of the New Indian Express until the July 1 issue. It is no longer there on July 2. There has been a shake up of the editorial heads. Till yesterday V Sudarshan was billed on the print line as executive editor, along with Chawla as ED. Today there is a new arrangement. G S Vasu who was the resident editor at Hyderabad has been named editor of the paper, there is now no editorial director or executive editor in the print line. Instead, Chairman of the Board Manoj Kumar Sonthalia is listed. A top cricket honcho whose antipathy to Lalit Modi is known is rumoured to have been lobbying against Chawla.

SKODA India will provide Skoda cars and make necessary arrangements for fuel, stay, food and technical support for the drive."
