Saira Menezes, the Sunday Mid-Day Editor, who has been with the Mumbai afternoon paper for over four years, will now be taking over as Editor of Emirates Evening Post. She moves to Dubai later this October.
Confirming the news, Menezes said, “Emirates Evening Post is all set to re-launch itself and I have been given the responsibility to see through this change. Currently, the paper targets the general public, but that is set to change. In fact, we will start from scratch and the new look paper will have no resemblance to the existing one.”
The re-launched paper is set to hit the stands in the first week of December 2005 with new focus, format and new identity. With this, Menezes becomes the first female editor of any UAE publication.
Associate Editor Alpa Lath Sawai will take over from Menezes as the new Editor of Sunday Mid-Day.
