Having been born in media, I am sure to last only in media: Suresh Selvaraj

Suresh Selvaraj recently quit as the CEO and Executive Director of Asianet News Network (ANN). He was heading Suvarna News 24X7, a Kannada news channel; Asianet News, a Malayalam news channel; and Kannada Prabha, a Kannada daily.

Selvaraj had joined ANN last February after a stint of 13 years with Outlook Group as its President.

“This is the shortest tenure in my entire career spanning 33 years in media. Regional news channels are no doubt exciting as the challenges are of different kind. It was interesting to work on a fledgling channel such as Suvarna News 24X7 and be part of many changes that were put in place – be it content mix, look and feel, setting up new studios and infrastructure, changing the profile of advertisers, topped with an increase of 27 per cent in revenues. I take this opportunity to thank all my friends – advertisers and agencies, who supported us with an impressive volume of prestigious brands and the team deserves the credit for doing so,” said Selvaraj.

“Yes, there are miles to go but I felt that I deserved a break. I was longing for it after my 13-year tenure at Outlook Group, but had hastened in joining ANN. Having been born in media, I am sure to last only in media. As the parlance goes, will be back shortly after a leisure break,” he added.
