First on MxM! : Its final. A K Bhattacharya to be Business Standard editor

12 Sep,2011

It was rumoured that he would take charge as editor and it’s now confirmed. In a mail sent by chairman and editorial director Mr T N Ninan earlier today, group managing editor Mr A K Bhattacharya has been appointed editor. He will take charge on November 1, 2011.

AKB, as Mr Bhattacharya is known as, joined the paper in January 1996 as national editor. He later launched the paper’s Mumbai edition as resident editor.


Mr Bhattacharya’s appointment follows Sanjaya Baru’s resignation as the editor, following his decision to join an international thinktank. I wish to place on record my thanks to Dr Baru for his editorial leadership of the last two years, and to wish him well in his future career, Mr Ninan’s mail said putting an end to all rumours.
