Editor, TIME International
Bobby Ghosh was named the editor of TIME International in March 2013. He oversees TIME’s international coverage for the domestic edition, TIME.com and TIME’s three international print editions with a combined circulation of more than 1 million readers serving Europe, the Middle East, and Africa; the South Pacific; and Asia.
Ghosh has been with TIME since 1997, holding numerous positions including his most recent post as editor-at-large, reporting for TIME from around the world. He has covered Iraq since the beginning of the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, spending more time in Baghdad than any other print reporter and serving as TIME’s Baghdad bureau chief from 2006-2011. He has reported extensively from Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Tunisia.
Ghosh’s recent cover stories include an interview with Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi, several pieces on the Arab Spring and one on the rise of Islamophobia in America. In 2012, Ghosh profiled soccer stars Leo Messi and Neymar for two separate TIME International cover stories.
Ghosh joined TIME as senior editor for TIME Asia, based in Hong Kong, where he was a specialist on South Asian affairs and covered assignments in politics, war, sports, business and technology. He also wrote the weekly TIME.com column Subcontinental Drift. He then moved to London to work as senior editor of TIME Europe, where he launched a travel section, TIME’s Global Adviser, and wrote about European social trends and Middle East politics.
Ghosh began his journalistic career straight after graduating from high school when he worked for a local newspaper in southern India. He moved on to a business newspaper in Calcutta and continued to Delhi and Bombay, where he reported business news for magazines. In 1995, he relocated to Hong Kong and joined the Far Eastern Economic Review. Ghosh is currently based in New York City.
