    Neelabh Mishra, editor-in-chief of National Herald and Navjivan passes away

    Editor-in-chief of National Herald Neelabh Mishra, aged 57, passed away today.

    Neelabh, who had been admitted to Apollo Hospital in Chennai earlier this month, was critically ill with complications resulting from non-alcoholic liver cirrhosis. He developed multiple organ failure before a liver transplant could be carried out. He breathed his last surrounded by his relatives, friends and comrades.

In 2017, Mishra relaunched the National Herald on Sunday newspaper, and then National Heralds sister publications Navjivan and Qaumi Awaz as news websites.

    Before National Herald, Neelabh was editor of Outlook Hindi for several years. An MA in English Literature from Delhi University, Neelabh began his career as a reporter with Navbharat Times in his hometown Patna. He then moved to Rajasthan as the Jaipur correspondent for News Time. He also set up Eenadu TV in Rajasthan in 1998.
