The leadership positions at mainstream newspapers don’t see changes too often. Or upheavals. So the announcement of the exit of Aparasim Ghosh, now better known as Bobby Ghosh, comes as a bit of a surprise. Especially since it comes just a little over a year after he took charge at the helm of the editorial teams at HT Media’s flagship print and digital arm – Hindustan Times.


Ghosh took over from Sanjoy Narayan who was incharge for eight years starting 2008. For three years starting 2013, HT also brought in Nicholas Dawes from South Africa’s ‘Mail and Guardian’ newspaper.


Ghosh has had a steady rise ever since he got into the profession with Deccan Chronicle. Those who were in the A&M fraternity in the early 1990s would remember Ghosh in BusinessWorld magazine where he ran an A&M section. From there he moved to the Far Eastern Economic Review stable which also published Asiaweek. In the last two-odd decades, Ghosh has worked with CNN and Time magazine as also Quartz, the Atlantic Media website in New York which he initially joined as Managing Editor in June 2014 but was soon moved over to an Editor-at-Large role.


According to mail sent by HT Media Chairperson Shobhana Bhartia, Ghosh is returning to New York for personal reasons. He has engineered a dramatic transformation of our various news products, she wrote in a communication to staff.
