Maharashtra Times gets Vilasrao Deshmukh to guest edit as it completes 45 years

Maharashtra Times, a key player among Marathi newspapers, turns 45 years on June 18, 2007. To celebrate the occasion, the publication has invited Maharashtra Chief Minister, Vilasrao Deshmukh, as guest editor for the day.

Ranjeet Kate, Deputy Director, Language Dailies, The Times Group, said, “Maharashtra Times is the largest read and circulated language daily of Mumbai and we are very excited with the Chief Minister coming as the guest editor for our 45th anniversary.”

Kate further informed that in the recent years, Maharashtra Times had worked its way towards adding to readership from the right kind of people. It may also be noted that Maharashtra Times is also the first regional language paper to go all colour.

“Maharashtra Times has always been a pioneer in creating exciting and innovative concepts for the readers as well as clients. Some of our initiatives like Mata Sanman, an award function on the lines of Filmfare Awards to felicitate excellence in Marathi entertainment, Mumbai Times Carnival, which is a week long youth festival, and various others have attracted overwhelming response, and we are looking forward to doing a lot more for our readers and clients,” Kate added.

Taking the anniversary celebrations further, Maharashtra Times is coming out with a special anniversary issue on June 18. The special issue will celebrate the economic and social growth of Maharashtra with focus on Mumbai.

In the recent past, Maharashtra Times has invited various celebrities and political figures as guest editors. The list includes the likes of Praful Patel, Shobhaa De and Supriya Sule (Sharad Pawar’s daughter) among various others.
