The latest, according to some text messages doing the rounds is that Jaggi (R Jagannathan, Editor, DNA) is the man who might be called to head up the FT-TV18 Joint-Venture after Ravi Dhariwal slew Haresh Chawla on the battlefield of offers and counter-offers.
What is this about senior members of HT's editorial staff going to Police Stations to file FIR's about computers getting hacked? Anyway, the latest doing the rounds when it comes to the Birla paper is that Sid Varadarajan or Swapan Dasgupta might be the papers next editor. Sounds rather incredulous, because the political views of both these men are almost totally opposite. But the question is would anyone choose to join a sinking ship, since many others have refused. Anyway, with Sharad Pawar's paper luring away half of HT (a Delhi launch on the cards?), there might not be much of a ship to right.
