After Varadarajan, MK Venu moves on as Executive Editor of The Hindu

The Hindu has lost its second key member in the editorial team in two days. MK Venu, Executive Editor, has put in his papers. He had joined the organisation in the first week of June this year and was reporting to Siddharth Varadarajan, who quit The Hindu as its Editor yesterday.

Speaking to exchange4media, Venu said, “I had taken a pay cut to join The Hindu essentially to experience professionalised editorial management, which was the core value that N Ram offered me. The moment that whole decision changed, I decided to step down.”

When asked about his next destination, Venu replied at that he will be taking a break for a couple of weeks and mull over the options coming his way.

Sharing about his short stint experience with the English daily, he said, “It was a fantastic and short and sweet stint. We broke so many stories, such as the coal file stories that are being taken up by the Parliament. One of the reasons I had joined The Hindu was to enhance the political economy content of the paper.”

Prior to joining The Hindu, Venu was working with The Financial Express, where he was Managing Editor. He had put in around four years with the financial daily.

Venu was earlier with The Economic Times, where he worked in varying capacities for 12 years. He was Chief Editor, News when he quit the financial daily. Prior to The Economic Times, he had worked national newspapers such as Hindustan Times and other publications of The Times of India Group. He has written extensively on India’s dynamic role at the WTO and its quest to become part of regional trade blocs such as ASEAN and the East Asian Summit, BRIC and so on.
