Vinita Dawra Nangia has taken over as the Editor, Bombay Times. Nangia, a well-known name in the lifestyle and fashion journalism, has spent a large part of her career in Delhi.
Prior to joining Times Of India, she had worked with Hindustan Times and written largely on fashion. At Times Of India, she has been involved with Saturday Times. She has also been Times Food Guide as an editor and has had a major role to play in Times News Network.
Ayaz Memon, however, continues to be the Sports Editor of Times Of India. As per the market buzz, Memon has been relieved of his duties as Editor, Bombay Times, so that he can devote more time to Times’ new city-centric paper. As per the market grapevine, launch of the new paper to be called either Bombay Times Plus or Bombay Mirror has been postponed to June – July.
When contacted by exchange4media, Memon refused to comment on his new responsibilities or the launch of the new paper. He, however, insisted that he would very much remain a part of the Time Of India team and had no plans what so ever to another media outfit.
