Today's 'What The F*** Rumour Of The Day' (WTFROTD) has nothing to do with the sexual peccadillo's of some anchorette or another, nor does it have to do with what publication Raghav Behl is buying, but something a little more interesting that I heard from two different people today (and with no connection between them). The rumour concerns the erstwhile editor of DNA and the fact that some of his close confidants from DNA are heading to Delhi. But, according to all indications DNA has put Delhi plans on hold, so what gives? well, as the story goes Gautam seems to be headed to 18-20 KG Marg. As what? I have no frikkin' clue, but that is what the grapevine says.
Second thing, the little story about Aakar Patel coming to head the India Today-Daily Mail newspaper is not confirmed as yet. The Daily Mail has been interested in India for a while and initial talks they had were with the Mid-Day Group where Aakar was still Group Ed. Going forward they were very keen that he comes to head this new baby, but with the Indian Today group calling the shots, it seems that things haven't quite fallen into place as yet. On another note, a couple of other senior people have come back to the India Today fold to 'oversee' things at the new paper. Thankfully, this new paper will not be as air-headed and as vapid as MetroNow which is neither here nor there. Well, actually its so bad it deserves to be in a dustbin - thats what happens when you hire airheads. Well, actually Today happens, but then again MetroNow is full of Today rejects, so ouch, it is actually worse!
Anyway, thats all for now.
