Andrew Clarance now multimedia editor at HuffPost India

HuffPost India seems to be continuing with a string of appointments as Andrew Clarance has joined the website in the capacity of multimedia editor. Exchange4media has learnt that Clarance made the move late last month alongside Shivam Vij and Rukmini Shrinivasan. We had earlier reported on the twin appointments of Vij and Shrinivasan as deputy editor and editor - data and innovation, respectively.

Previously, Clarance was associated with Catch News as an associate editor. He was helping Catch, a Patrika Group initiative, build on their video content. Clarance has become yet another former Tehelka employee to quit Catch following Shoma Chaudhury and Kunal Majumder.

Earlier this year, Chaudhury was forced to quit Catch under controversial circumstances. As editor-in-chief, Chaudhury had launched Catch and set up a dedicated team of journalists.

“In a completely unexpected development, on February 27, I was called to Jaipur by the director of finance and told that since Catch has now been successfully created and stabilised, Patrika no longer wants to keep me on as its editor-in-chief. I was asked to stop coming to work from Monday, February 29,” Chaudhury wrote to Catch employees in her parting letter.

Being a confidante of Tehelka’s Tarun Tejpal, Chaudhary had brought along a few employees of Tehelka to Catch. These included Majumder who was editor – speed news at Catch but is presently steering the ship of InUth, a video-driven website launched recently by The Express Group targeting youngsters. Clarance was video editor at Tehelka.

Post Tehelka, he was briefly with The Indian Express. An alumnus of St Stephen’s and Asian College of Journalism, Clarance and his fellow appointees will have to necessarily provide HuffPost India with a new sense of direction. The website, brought out in partnership with Times Group, was launched in 2014.
