It is learnt from sources close to the development that N Ram, Editor-in-Chief of The Hindu, Business Line, Frontline and Sportstar has informed via a letter (a copy of which is with MxMIndia) to the Board of Directors, Kasturi & Sons Ltd his decision to step down. His last day at work would be January 19, 2012. He has spent eight years in his role as Editor-in-Chief. However, he will continue as full time director at Kasturi & Sons Ltd.


He has also suggested that the Board may pass the necessary resolutions declaring, with effect from January 19, 2012, Mr Siddharth Varadarajan, who is the Editor of The Hindu to take responsibility as the Editor of The Hindu (inclusive of the annual publications, The Hindu Survey Of Indian Industry; The Hindu Survey Of Indian Agriculture; and The Hindu Survey Of the Environment). He will be responsible for selection of news under the PRB Act. Mr D Sampathkumar, the Editor of Business Line, Mr R Vijayasankar, Editor of Frontline and Mr Nirmal Shekar, the Editor of Sportstar have been named as the respective editors of their newspapers and magazines and will be also responsible for selection of news under the PRB Act.


The letter also states that since Mr Ram will also cease to being the publisher of the above mentioned titles, the board may pass resolution to name Mr K Balaji, the MD at KSL as the publisher and printer. This will be an interim role until the group gets a CEO who will take over these roles as applicable.
