Bose returns, as Standard interviewer

Mihir Bose, the BBC’s first sports editor who left the corporation last month, has been hired by the Evening Standard as a sports interviewer.

“We are absolutely delighted that Mihir will be writing regularly for the paper and be bringing his incisive and brilliant writing to the sports pages,” said the Evening Standard managing editor, Doug Wills.

SJA member Bose, who previously worked at the Sunday Times and Daily Telegraph, was at the BBC for little more than two years, during which time he divided opinion.

Media Guardian hints that Bose may owe his new position to his friendship with the Evening Standard‘s deputy editor, Sarah Sands. Sands and Bose were at the Telegraph together, and when Sands was editing Reader’s Digest she commissioned him to write about an immigrant’s experience of Britain.
