Sir Harold Evans, the long-time editor of the Sunday Times of London, has joined Thomson Reuters Corp. as editor-at-large of its news service, part of a broader effort by Reuters to raise its visibility.
In his new role, Mr. Evans will moderate conversations with global leaders and host live events to showcase the news organization’s photojournalism. The discussion series will launch June 14 with an event in New York where former U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman, and former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger will talk about China.
Reuters in recent months has undergone a significant expansion with the hire of a number of veteran journalists.
