More EchTee

The official note has gone out inside India Today, Sanjoy Narayan is leaving Business Today to join The Hindustan Times as Editor-in-Chief. I promised I would not write about this until an official note of some sort was sent.

Good for Hindustan Times, they finally get someone who knows how to run an editorial business. And very bad for people who are doing nothing but vegetating in HT...

question is will sanjoy be able to handle the old bandicoots at HT and there are so many of them. the political/government senior journalists are far more difficult to handle than business journalists of the same vintage. if he's able to tackle them, hats off to him.

...yeah..he's gonna whip their ass!
so do we some some more exits from BT or Mint?

He won't tackle these bandicoots, he'll fry them...but he will also need to fix the marketing and HR people there...frankly its the only place where even HR thinks that its they who produce the paper and marketing is closing in on editorial...

It will be interesting to see how Sanjoy deals with some of the professional "survivors" at HT, whose only happiness in life is to see the exit of editor after editor while they remain firmly entrenched there.

Any word about who will replace SN in BT?

Been out of touch with presstalk for some time. Any developments? Has Sanjoy joined HT or is he still at BT? Interestingly, that Sports Woman who ruined Pankaj Paul's reputation (or was it mutual?) has gone on leave for 45 days, and reports say that she is in the US!! If Sanjoy has any sense, he would be well advised to steer clear of her when she comes back and rejoins work.

Heard some news from HT. Sanjoy, sensibly after the "international" idiots of recent times, seems to be trying to simply bring out a decent product. It seems he is telling folks to focus on bringing out a good paper, and forget all that crap about those international aspirations of the last two imported editors who proved completely clueless about journalism.
