Alisha Haridasani Gupta Joins Briefings Team

Andrea Kannapell, the leader of our Briefings team, announces a new hire:

This is a focal moment for The New York Times’s family of briefings, nearly two years into the launch of the global editions of the Morning Briefing.

We’re adding a welcome new talent to the team. Alisha Haridasani Gupta has joined the newsroom in New York, writing the morning edition of the briefing for European readers.

Alisha is a remarkably versatile journalist with a global outlook. Originally from Hong Kong, she studied in London, has worked at Bloomberg and CNN, and wrote The Skimm for a year.

The briefings are among the most viewed items that The Times publishes, offering a guided rundown of news for readers around the world.

The Times, and our readers in Europe, are already the better for her arrival.
