Aditya Sinha has been appointed as Editor-in-Chief of The New Indian Express. Prior to this appointment, he was Editor of Sunday Hindustan Times and was responsible for making it a leading Sunday newspaper in Delhi.
Speaking about his new assignment, Sinha said, “As Editor-in-Chief, I will oversee the editorial operations of The New Indian Express that comprises 14 editions. Since its inception as an entity distinct from the Indian Express, nearly 11 years ago, TNIE has been through a long phase of consolidation. It is now poised for new direction and growth. My role will include revamping the newspaper and giving a clear editorial direction so that the newspaper reflects a new economic and intellectual vibrancy of South India.”
“We are planning for a major overhaul of design and the paper
will be modern, attractive and give the readers value for money,” he added.
Speaking about his vision for the newspaper, he said, “TNIE should ultimately become the foremost information provider for the readers.”
Having spent most of his childhood and adolescence in abroad, Sinha started his career in Delhi in 1987. For most of his career as a Reporter in the ’80s and
’90s, he reported on terrorism in Punjab, Kashmir and Assam. He has also done reporting from Pakistan and was the only Indian Reporter in Peshawar.
