Roy Joseph, former VP- Operations, Zee News, moves as COO, Radaan Media

Chennai-based Radaan Mediaworks, with interests in television production, film production, graphics, event management, and training, is slowly but surely going national. In a recent development, the media company has roped in Roy Joseph, who was VP-Operations at Zee News, as its COO.

Excited at the possibilities with the new assignment, Roy Joseph said, “After ten and a half years in news, I wanted to go back to my forte, which I think is production. I got an offer from Radaan and decided to take it up. It’s an organisation with immense potential and I am looking forward to it.” His job is to assist the group’s expansion strategy across the country, and also to further strengthen the group in all the domains it is present in now, according to the new COO.

Roy Joseph has been with Zee News since 1995, and was part of the team that brought out the first news bulletin from Zee in 1995. Several promotions later, he was elevated to VP – Operations heading the news operations in early 2005.

The South Indian Television production major already has one show on E TV Gujarati, ‘Kangu Pagla’, and is currently engaged in discussions with television channels across the country in several languages. ‘Chotimaa’, which went on air on Zee TV in 2002, is also a Radaan production. It has a formidable presence across all South Indian language channels and has even tasted success in Sinhalese programming.

Radaan had recently produced a Tamil movie, titled ‘Jithan’, and another production is in the final stages of conceptualisation. Added Joseph, “After some time, we are definitely planning to produce Hindi movies also. That’s a long-term agenda.” The company plans to expand its Mumbai operations in due course. Presently, it has an office taking care of the needs of its Gujarati production, and this is to expand based on ‘requirements and utilisation’.

Its founder, Chairperson and All-time Director R Radhikaa Sarathkumar, a veteran of over 275 films, heads Radaan. Besides its core focus of television and film production, the strategic business units of the company include Krayons, the graphics unit, and its live entertainment unit. It also has the Radaan Academy of Media Sciences, a Chennai-based academy for aspiring Film and TV professionals.
