Bobby Ghosh is Hindustan Times’ new Editor-in-Chief, based in New Delhi. He arrives at HT from New York, where he was a Global News Analyst on CNN, and Managing Editor of Quartz. Before moving to Quartz in 2014, he was Editor of TIME International.

In a 16-year career at TIME, Ghosh was an award-winning war correspondent, having covered conflicts in Baghdad, Palestine-Israel and Kashmir. He has also written extensively about Afghanistan, Pakistan, India -- and more generally about foreign policy issues. He has also written about sports, business, culture and food.

His postings included a five-year stint in Baghdad, two years in London, seven years in Hong Kong and a year in Washington DC.

His journalistic career has taken him to much of the Middle East, Europe, Latin America and Asia.

Born and raised in India, Ghosh also worked as a journalist in New Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata, for Indian publications like Deccan Chronicle newspaper, Business Standard newspaper and Business World magazine.

Before joining TIME in Hong Kong in 1998, he was an editor and writer at the Far Eastern Economic Review.

Ghosh is frequently seen on TV, as an expert on issues pertaining to Islam, the Middle East, Afghanistan-Pakistan, the Indian subcontinent and U.S. foreign policy.

Before he joined the CNN, he appeared frequently on such shows as CBS’ Face the Nation, Charlie Rose, BBC World News America, Good Morning America, Hardball and many other news broadcasts.

His TED talk on ‘The End of Global Jihad’ has been viewed by more than half a million people.
