Sanjay Jha joins NowPublic as South Asia Bureau Chief

Sanjay Jha has been appointed South Asia Bureau Chief at NowPublic. He will be based in Delhi, where he would be reporting on Indian and South Asian affairs. NowPublic is a participatory news network that showcases its platform for citizen journalism. Prior to this appointment, Jha was with the South Asian Bureau of The Guardian, based in Delhi.

Confirming Jha’s appointment, Leonard Brody, Co-Founder and CEO, NowPublic, said, “India, with the surrounding South Asian region, is an important market for NowPublic and participatory journalism. With a large population of tech early adopters and a vibrant news culture, NowPublic has already been exceptionally well received in the region. Sanjay Jha is an accomplished journalist and we expect that his involvement with NowPublic would allow us to break new ground in how South Asia news is collected and distributed – regionally and globally.”

Jha said, “NowPublic has created the largest news gathering organisation in the world, effectively establishing a new model media company. I’m delighted to help facilitate the newsgathering for this region, which is rich in content and dialogue. NowPublic is the perfect platform for India and the region to engage in a global discourse about the affairs that matter most to each one of us.”

Jha had earlier worked as India Producer for the BBC, PBS, France 2 and the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. His special series, ‘India’s Promise’, was aired on PBS America. He also produced ‘Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts’, and a 4-episode documentary currently on BBC 3. Jha has also been associated with Aaj Tak.
