Under the agreement, Riverside media will provide advertising sales and marketing support for India Today’s entire portfolio of publications with the exception of Business Today.

“The publications in the India Today Group are ideally positioned to reach some of the most important segments of the Indian market,” said W. John Holmes, president of Riverside Media. “We are extremely pleased to be the North American representative for this diverse group of publications,” he added.
