MOSCOW, August 6 (Itar-Tass) - Alexander Malyutin was reappointed editor-in-chief of the Izvestia daily on Tuesday. Malyutin used to head the newspaper from April 2011 until June 2012.
“I officially took up by duties of the chief editor today. As for the content of my job, I believe it is too early to speak about any details. Anyway, the newspaper will now be more focused on analytical articles rather than on current news,” Malyutin told Itar-Tass.
Malyutin replaced Vitaly Abramov who had headed Izvestia since October 2009. Aram Gabrelyanov, the director general of the News Media holding, was concurrently appointed chairman of Izvestia’s board of directors. Gabrelyanov who is also deputy general director of the National Media Group holdings is famous for his Internet news projects.
The Izvestia daily, the St.Petersburg-based Fifth Television Channel (TRK Petersburg) and the REN TV media holdings are affiliated with the National Media Group.
