Raju Narisetti is professor at Columbia Journalism School, where he is director of the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship, a prestigious one-year economics and business programme for working journalists. After moving from his native India to the US in 1990 to study journalism, he spent two decades working for the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and News Corp as a reporter, and later led their transformation into digital-first operations. In 2006, he was founding editor of Mint, India’s second biggest media business and its first newspaper to be published in the Berliner format. In this in-depth interview, Raju recalls the challenge of bringing brands such as Gawker, The Root and The Onion together during his time as CEO of Gizmodo, explains the notion of the “truth sandwich” when reporting dubious facts – and discusses his renewed optimism about the future of print journalism.
