Sandipan Deb quits as Editor-in-Chief of ‘Open’

Sandipan Deb, the Editor-in-Chief of ‘Open’ magazine, has put in his papers. He had been with ‘Open’ for over two and a half year and was considered a pioneer in conceptualising the magazine. Deb was earlier with ‘Outlook’.

Commenting on the development, Raj Mohan, Publisher, ‘Open’, told exchange4media, “Sandipan Deb has conceptualised the magazine called ‘Open’, put together a brilliant editorial team, and has consistently produced a superb editorial product. The credit of the magazine’s acceptance today goes to him. He is a great writer and editor. Personally, I have been privileged to have worked with him.”

Confirming the news to exchange4media, Deb said, “I had a great time in ‘Open’ and with immense hard work we put together a great team. Quality wise, ‘Open’ is excellent. I have some personal projects and ideas of my own, which I will work on now. With ‘Open’, the work was so intense that I wanted some rest now. Now that the brand is established, ‘Open’ is in good hands.”

Manu Joseph will now don the mantle of his mentor Deb and become the new editorial head. Confirming the news, Raj Mohan said, “Manu Joseph has been with Sandipan right from the beginning in the journey called ‘Open’. Manu is our Deputy Editor, and we are glad that he is taking over as the Editor to take the brand forward. He is in complete sync with the philosophy and ethos of the brand.”
