It is now confirmed that HT has got on board three senior people: Soumitra Bose, Kunal Pradhan and Ipsit Mohapatra.

Bose, whose last stint was at ndtv.com as executive editor where he was heading all sports related digital properties, has joined HT as national sports editor. He will be responsible for offering sports content to readers across all channels. A journalist with three decades of experience across print, broadcast and digital platforms, Bose spent his early years at work with The Telegraph, Asian Age and The Times of India. He later moved to ESPN-STAR Sports, where he started working in the broadcasting business and then moved to the digital business as Content Head. In his new role, Bose will manage sports resources across all HT locations.

Sukhwant Basra, who was leading the sports team for the past four years, is moving into a new role as Sports Editor, Special Projects wherein he will lead coverage of the amateur’s experience of sport, in print as well as online.

Pradhan has come on board as a deputy executive editor to lead HT’s coverage of Delhi and NCR region. Prior to joining HT, Kunal was Executive Editor at India Today, where he helped with the magazine apart from writing on a wide range of issues such as politics, crime, pop culture and sports. A Journalism graduate from Delhi University, Kunal started his career two decades ago at The Pioneer. Over the years, he worked as a sports correspondent at Reuters and as National Sports Editor at The Indian Express, before becoming Deputy Editor of Mumbai Mirror in 2010.

Interestingly, this is Mohapatra’s third stint at HT, this time as Deputy National Affairs Editor. He started in journalism with HT in September 2001 as a reporter in Odisha. He then moved to the desk before moving south to work with the New Indian Express and Deccan Chronicle. He returned to HT in 2010 for a second stint that lasted nearly five years, during which he played a key role in managing the first integrated copy desk.
