Avirook Sen has decided to call it quits at ‘Mid-Day’ due to professional and personal reasons. He may join the print or television space next

Mid-Day’s group editor Avirook Sen has called it quits. It is learnt that his last day at the tabloid was February 28. Both Cyriac Mathew, chief operating officer, ‘Mid-Day’ and Sen himself confirmed this news to agencyfaqs!.

Sen had moved to ‘Mid-Day’ in April, 2006, as group editor, from ‘Hindustan Times’. It has been less than a year since he moved to ‘Mid-Day’. He was the resident editor of ‘Hindustan Times’, Mumbai, since the inception of the broadsheet in the city.

He cites professional as well as personal reasons for his exit from ‘Mid-Day’. He says that it had been difficult since his family is based in Delhi, while he is in Mumbai. In all probability, Sen will be based out of Delhi in his next job.

When asked about his next destination, Sen says, “I am exploring options. It will be unfair to answer that at this juncture.” He adds that he was looking at both print as television as options.

Prior to ‘Mid-Day’, where he joined in the place of Akar Patel, and The “HT’ broadsheet, Sen has worked on the ‘Hindustan Times’ website as the editor.

He commenced his career writing for ‘Sunday’ magazine for five years. Later, he moved to ‘India Today’ in 1995, where he worked for five years as principal correspondent, based in Kolkata.
