Oman Tribune names Ajith Das as Editor

MUSCAT MAY 31: Oman Tribune has named Ajith Das as the Editor. The announcement was made by Mohammed Suleiman Al Taie, Chairman and founder of Oman Tribune.

Das, who has been the News Editor of Tribune since its inception, has been managing the operations of the daily for the past six-plus years.

Oman Tribune is the No.1 daily in the quality segment in Oman.

Oman Tribune is published by Omani Establishment for Press, Printing and Publishing & Distribution, which is the largest media house in the country. It publishes Al Watan, the oldest and largest Arabic circulated daily in the country, and many other publications.

Das who started his career in journalism 18 years ago in 1993 with the Hindustan Times in New Delhi went on to become a well regarded financial journalist on the News Desk of The Economic Times, New Delhi.

He moved to the Arabian Gulf in 1999 taking charge as the Business Editor of the Gulf Today in the UAE.

After holding the position for 5 years, he moved to Oman in 2004 to set up Oman Tribune.

A keen reader of strategic and business issues, Das is well regarded for his sharp news sense and deep knowledge of Middle Eastern issues and global business. He is highly regarded for his prowess in news management and newspaper production.

Das, who prefers to stay out of the limelight, hails from Thalassery in Kerala, Southern India.

He describes himself as a 'journalist of the old school', who is focused on fairness, objectivity and good taste in news reporting -- free of comment, agendas, innuendo and unattributed pejorative quotations.

He is a fierce critic of the present trend set by corporate media managers - that the media should provide what the readers want.

"In that case, there is no need for journalists," he avers.
