Hindustan Times has appointed Anil Penna as the rewrite head and promoted Ramesh Vinayak to the post of Executive Editor.

He has been a reporter for top international wires (covering the fall of Kabul from Kabul and the Asian financial crisis from HK among others) and an editor,” said Sukumar Ranganathan, Editor-in-chief, Hindustan Times further adding that Penna is also, perhaps the biggest Salman Khan fan in the building (Hindustan Times office).

Penna will report to Kunal Pradhan and be part of HT’s editorial leadership team headed by Sukumar Ranganathan.

In another internal email Saumya Bhattacharya, Managing Editor, Hindustan Times made the announcement of Ramesh Vinayak’s promotion to Executive Editor.

“Since joining Hindustan Times in 2009 as Resident Editor, Chandigarh, Ramesh has led our robust coverage of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, and Chandigarh. Under his tutelage, our Chandigarh edition has become sharper and stronger,” she said giving credits to Vinayak’s leadership for HT’s leading performance, as per IRS 2018, in Punjab and Haryana.
