Gökçe Aytulu takes helm at Hürriyet Daily News
“The Hürriyet Daily News has a special tradition in journalism. For the new era, this tradition will be illuminating our path,” Aytulu said during a handover ceremony at the newspaper’s headquarters in Istanbul on Oct. 1.
Yetkin, who ran the newspaper for more than seven years, congratulated his successor and former colleague.
“Now, I am passing the flag on to Gökçe Aytulu, who is from a younger generation of Turkish journalists but who has all the qualities and experience to run HDN,” Yetkin said.
Aytulu worked at CNN Türk, Referans, Radikal, and Hürriyet as a reporter and editor.
Previously, he was the managing editor of Hürriyet, a mainstream Turkish-language newspaper.
