Former HT Mobile Editor Yusuf Omar moves to CNN International

After a short but eventful stay lasting for about ten months at the Hindustan Times, Yusuf Omar has joined CNN International as a Senior Social Reporter/Producer. Omar will be working out of the broadcaster’s London bureau as part of the social publishing team led by Director Ashley Codianni.

Announcing Omar’s appointment on March 6, Samantha Barry, Executive Producer of Social and Emerging Media, said, “Making the most of his strong mobile storytelling skills, Yusuf will work primarily on CNN’s Snapchat Discover edition, reaching large numbers of millennials every month. We're excited to see how Yusuf, along with Allison Morrow and the entire CNN Snapchat team, will continue to innovate on the platform.”

In May last year, the Indian-origin journalist was appointed as Mobile Editor by Hindustan Times (HT). His stint largely revolved around creating and training 750 mobile journalists for the print giant. While at HT, Omar’s innovative use of Snapchat filters for narrating the stories of sexual abuse survivors was bestowed with a special recognition by International Journalists’ Network.

Born in the United Kingdom, Omar moved to HT from eNCA in South Africa where he made his name as a mobile journalist reporting on conflicts such as the Syrian civil war. Recipient of the Duke Media Fellowship in 2016, Omar holds a post graduate diploma in journalism from Rhodes University in South Africa.
