Ayaz Memon joins IMN News as Consulting Editor

Ayaz Memon, who had quit DNA some time back, has joined IMN News (formerly NewsX) as Consulting Editor. He took charge a week ago. At DNA, Memon was Editor-at-large and then continued as a columnist. He was with DNA since 2005.

Confirming the development, Jehangir S Pocha, Co-promoter, IMN News, said, “We are delighted to have Ayaz join our team. He is one of India’s best-known journalists and has a wealth of experience and knowledge. His leadership will be instrumental in further building our sports, business, political and lifestyle coverage.”

Talking about his role at IMN, Memon said, “This is my first stint with television and I am really excited about it as television is all about real time. There are exciting plans for the relaunch and work is progressing fast towards that end.”

Memon has been in journalism for more than 30 years and has written about sports, politics, cinema, and so on.

It may be recalled that NewsX had announced on May 11, 2010 that it was being revamped and would now go by the name IMN News. The new branding would come into effect from July. The new brand identity is another step in IMN News’ ongoing process of realigning and revitalising itself after its acquisition in January 2009.
