The Resident Editor of Hindustan Times, Mumbai edition, Avirook Sen, has decided to take on a bigger challenge. Sen is on his way to Mid-Day as Group Editor. Sen wasn’t available for comments and Mid-Day officials couldn’t be contacted at the time of filing the report. However, sources familiar with the situation informed that the change would be effective around the first week of May 2006.
With the exit of Aakar Patel, Group Editor, in November 2005, Mid-Day has not taken any editor on board. Sources further informed that Sen was expected to take care of all the English publications, including the forthcoming Bangalore edition of Mid-Day, which is expected to be launched sometime this year itself.
Mid-Day officials have been very tight-lipped about the development and HT officials, too, weren’t offering any comments.
