Tehelka ropes in top editors for business daily Financial World

Financial World, a Tehelka publication, is gearing up for launch by roping in top editors. Prem Shankar Jha has been recently named as an editor for the business daily. The Financial World team also includes Hardev Sanotra, Managing Editor; Shantanu Guha Ray, Editor - News and Varkey George, Associate Editor.

The Financial World site ( is up with a ‘coming soon’ tag. exchange4media tried to get in touch with Tarun Tejpal, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of Tehelka, but no official comments were forthcoming at the time of filing this report.

If sources are to be believed, Jha is the Managing Editor of the soon to be launched Financial World. He is also a columnist with Tehelka. Jha had studied in Doon School and received his Masters degree in politics and economics from University of Oxford and Nuffield College, Oxford, respectively. Jha has previously worked with United Nations, Hindustan Times, Economic Times, Financial Express, etc.

Likewise, Sanotra, too, has been an acclaimed financial journalist for almost three decades and has worked with the top with newspapers, magazines and television channels. He has worked with the Business Standard for 11 years before moving on to Business Today. He then moved on to India Today as its Business Editor. Sanotra also headed Asia Business News India (ABNI), the precursor to CNBC-TV18 as its Executive Editor. He has also worked with the Financial Chronicle.

Ray and George, too, have spent several fruitful years in the field of journalism before becoming Editors with the soon to be released Financial World. The knowledge and expertise that Tehelka has garnered (in the form of top editors) for its business daily is impressive. The success of any publication is mostly powered by the content, which the to-be launched publication seems to be striving for. With the market looking positive, one wouldn’t be surprised if Financial World scripts a success story for itself.
