“Over the past 22 years, Mr. Nambath has engaged himself in various aspects of bringing out an iconic newspaper, which is now 140 years old. He has played a coordinating and leadership role on the news as well as editorial and opinion sides,” states a report in The Hindu.

Mukund Padmanabhan, who was the Editor of Business Line, took over as Editor of The Hindu in March 2016 following Malini Parthasarathy’s resignation in January that year. Malini served as Editor for 11 months before stepping down. The launch of the Mumbai edition of The Hindu and the amount of money spent on it were reported to be reasons for differences between the Board and Malini.

In 2011, the Board appointed Siddharth Varadarajan as Editor of The Hindu. He was the first Editor in nearly 50 years who didn’t belong to the Kasturi family. However, he soon resigned in October 2013, with N Ravi taking over from him.
