“A meeting of the Kantipur Media Group management approved the resignation of Anup Kaphle as editor-in-chief and appointed Sanjeev Satgainya as the new editor of the Post,” said Sirohiya.
Sirohiya said that he is confident that the paper will continue to do good journalism under the new leadership in the days to come.
Outgoing editor-in-chief Kaphle thanked the Kantipur Media Group management, and Sirohiya in particular, for providing him with all the necessary support during his tenure to turn the paper around. Kaphle said that he was grateful to the entire Post team and hoped that they would continue to do fearless journalism.
