Hindustan Times has appointed Sudeep Mukhia as Resident Editor in Delhi. Mukhia takes over from Yashwant Raj, who now moves to Washington DC as HT’s North America representative. Mukhia comes from CNN-IBN, where he was part of the channel’s launch team in 2005. He would report to Sanjoy Narayan, Editor-in-Chief, Hindustan Times.
Mukhia brings more than 16 years of experience, wherein he has worked with companies such as India Today, Indian Express, The Financial Express and Hindustan Times, too, where he had a short stint around 10 years back. At CNN-IBN, he was Editor in charge of output.
Yashwant Raj has been with Hindustan Times for almost 10 years, during which he has played several key senior editorial roles. In his new role, Raj will not only report and write for the newspaper and its online edition, but would also play a business development role for HT Media in the US. He will functionally report to both Narayan and Foreign Affairs Editor Pramit Pal Chaudhuri.
The developments were announced at HT earlier on May 3, 2010 in an internal email sent by Sanjoy Narayan.
