HuffPost India appoints Aman Sethi as new editor-in-chief

HuffPost India has appointed Aman Sethi as its new editor-in-chief. He will be taking charge from April 2, and will report to HuffPost’s International Director Louise Roug. The publication said that he will be responsible for the editorial output on HuffPost India, and will oversee the team of editors and contributors in India.

Sethi revealed his broad editorial plans for HuffPost India via a series of tweets.

Sethi is currently serving as an Associate Editor with Hindustan Times’ national desk. He is one of the three reporters working on ‘The Class of 2018‘ project at HT, which is “a year-long project to study Delhi’s education system in granular detail.”

Prior to HT, Sethi has served as the Africa correspondent for The Hindu, and he is also the author of the non-fiction book A Free Man.

HuffPost-Times Bridge deal collapse

HuffPost and the Times of India Group ended their partnership, in October last year. One of the key reasons for this was HuffPost India staff facing editorial strategy interference from Times Bridge’s head of content strategy Thane Richard, shortly before the then editor-in-chief of HuffPost India Sruthijith KK stepped down in August 2017. Rituparna Chatterjee had been serving as the interim editor-in-chief, following Sruthijith KK’s departure.

As of October last year, HuffPost India had a strength of 13 employees on the editorial side. In June 2017, it had laid off 9 employees from the editorial staff across their technology, business, lifestyle and trends verticals, and more were expected to leave.
