M&G makes history with youngest editor
The Mail & Guardian has named Verashni Pillay its newest editor-in-chief, making her the youngest editor in its history at just age 31. In the past, Pillay has served as associate editor and senior reporter there, most recently freelancing as a media consultant and newsroom trainer.
"Brilliant people and an incredibly special publication. So honoured to be appointed editor-in-chief of the Mail & Guardian," she tweets.
"I wonder? 31 years old, let's hope I don't age prematurely in the role!" Pillay replies.
