South African newsweekly Mail & Guardian’s editor-in-chief Nicholas Dawes is set to join Hindustan Times as chief content and editorial officer.


Although an HT spokesperson did not confirm or deny the development, Mr Dawes has announced this to his team at M&G today. He will be leaving the paper in September.


A report in the paper’s online version quotes him saying: “I have been offered a remarkable opportunity to help lead a process of change and growth at the Hindustan Times, one of the most important newspapers in a country going through momentous and fascinating changes. I look forward to putting what I have learned at the M&G to work in that new environment and on a very large scale.”


Sanjoy Narayan is currently Editor-in-Chief, Hindustan Times. According to the information available with MxMIndia, Mr Dawes will report to Mr Narayan, and play the role of a ‘managing editor’ in the newsroom. Mr Narayan is likely to inform his team of the same today.
