The NearFox newsroom is spearheaded by senior journalist Abhigyan Chand, who brings with him an experience of over 9 years at India’s leading pink papers and finance magazines.

Prior to this, Abhigyan was Assistant Editor at The Financial Express, where he drove coverage for sections like Companies, Economy, Personal Finance and a few weekly sections. He also draws on his experience at Outlook Money, India’s leading personal finance magazine and, in an earlier job, Business Standard, another national financial daily.

The editor works closely with highly motivated City Editors, who know the ins and outs of their respective cities. Their timely and incisive reportage is premised on a web of reliable news sources in the lifestyle segment and public relations firms, and they scour social media and other unconventional news sources to bring correct, unbiased news to readers.
