Mid-Day has announced the appointment of Shishir Joshi as Group Editorial Director. Joshi comes in from TV Today where he was Executive Editor and Mumbai Bureau Chief. Joshi would be part of the Mid-Day top management team and would report to Managing Director Tariq Ansari.

Talking about his experience at TV Today, Joshi said, “It has been a fantastic experience working with TV Today, and as Aaj Tak’s Western region head. Retaining Aaj Tak’s number one position during my stint would not have been possible without a fabulous team.”
