Anindya Jana has joined India Today as Executive Editor of its Bengali edition that is slated for a launch soon. Jana will be reporting to India Today Editor Prabhu Chawla.
Jana has been with the Ananda Bazaar Patrika Group ever since he started his career as a journalist 16 years ago. At ABP, he was heading the district editions of Bengali daily Ananda Bazaar Patrika.
India Today Bengali will be another addition to the regional bouquet of India Today. “The India Today Bengali magazine will essentially be a news-based one although the content is not yet in place,” said Jana. He added, “I think there is a void for a complete news magazine in Bengali. India Today is perceived to be the best news magazine in the country, so naturally we aspire to fill this void. The launch date of the magazine has not yet been finalised.”
