Aman Sethi Becomes HuffPost India’s New Editor-in-Chief.

Months after leaving Times Group, Aman Sethi has been appointed as HuffPost India’s Editor-in-Chief. Sethi will supervise all editorial staff and contributors and he will be responsible for all editorial content on HuffPost India.
On April 2, 2018, Sethi will take over from the Interim Editor-in-Charge, Rituparna Chatterjee and he will report directly to HuffPost Director, Louise Roug.

Aman Sethi previously served as Associate Editor at the Hindustan Times and before this, he worked as the Africa Correspondent for The Hindu. Sethi is an award winning journalist whose work has been featured in many renowned international publications including, The Guardian, Granta and Foreign Policy. His reportage covers topics related to politics, communalism, education, labour agitations, as well as, economics, and has led to the examination of critical local and international issues such as, India’s Maoist insurgency, the migrant crisis in Europe and land grabbing in Africa.

Speaking on Sethi’s appointment Lydia Polgreen, Editor-in-Chief, HuffPost Global, said, “I have followed Aman Sethi’s work with great admiration for years, and I’m thrilled he will be joining us as Editor-in-Chief in India. His work embodies the most important values of HuffPost: deep reporting, innovation and a relentless commitment to amplifying the least heard voices. Aman’s dedication to telling stories from the farthest flung corners of Indian society and homing in on the issues that matter most to ordinary people will make HuffPost India a must-read and must-watch.”

Sethi added, “HuffPost’s editorial independence and Oath’s enormous scale presents us with an opportunity to broaden the contours of our national conversation. I look forward to working with our talented pool of reporters to produce compelling multimedia reportage on traditionally under-reported subjects like the environment, healthcare, and the intersection of politics, business and technology.”

HuffPost aims to build a unified newsroom across its 17 editions, including in India. It engages with an average of 155 million monthly readers globally, with nearly 60% of their audience being outside of the United States. HuffPost was also ranked as the #1 publisher on Facebook in 2017.
