Bobby Ghosh

Bobby Ghosh is one of the well known and most admired among the journalists of the entire world. Bobby Ghosh was the first Non- American ever to be titled World Editor in TIMES’s for more than 80years. What’s more fascinating and a proud thing for all the Indians is that he is from Indian origin. He currently works as a journalist and managing director of the business news website Quartz. He started his career at the age of 17 as a sports stringer for an English language paper published in Hyderabad called News Time which belonged to Eenadu, the biggest Telugu paper with Rs 150 as his first salary in Vizag. With the constant support of the local correspondent, he also worked there as reporter-researcher. After which he signed to Deccan Chronicle, a prominent newspaper in Hyderabad, which wanted to open a local edition and wanted to hire him as a full-time correspondent and offered him a salary of Rs 850. He, of course, readily agreed. Bobby was an enthusiastic and spontaneous journalist; I can surely say that because he used to work on everything for that newspaper, from a Political story and event coverage to book and movie reviews. After working for a long time in Vizag, he looked for ways to move to Kolkata. Not only because he wanted to get out from the small town to a big city but also because his high school love had moved to Kolkata, who is now his wife. Luckily, he says, despite of failed tests and other qualifiers, he was still hired in Business Standard. And later he was sent to Bombay where he worked for Business World magazine and meanwhile got married to Bipasha, his high school sweetheart. Then there came another stroke of luck named Far Eastern Economic Review. It was published in Hong Kong, owned by Dow Jones. It was like the Asian version of the Economist. He got selected for The Review. Ghosh’s boss in The Review, Adi Ignatius (currently editor-in-chief of the Harvard Business Review) was recruited by the TIME Asia, which was in the same building. And they also needed another editor for which Adi suggested Bobby Ghosh’s name as he would be a cheap as compared to other editors as he had just come from India and would not negotiate much. This is how he stepped into the TIME. He worked in TIME as office chief, and one of the longest attending journalists in Iraq. He has composed novels from other conflict areas, like Palestine and Kashmir. He has also strived for Time Europe and Time Asia and has reported topics as various technology and soccer (like his very famous article about Lionel Messi). Bobby Ghosh is currently working as Quartz's Managing Editor, based in New York City.
