WIN TV, the group promoted by DIKSAT, has roped in as its Executive Director RBU Shyam Kumar, the former CEO of Puthiyathalaimurai Group.   

Shyam will be shouldering the responsibility of re-launching WIN NEWS along with Ram, the former Editor-in-Chief of Puthiyathalaimurai TV. 

Shyam has to his credit several successful revamps, launches and is an expert in experiential marketing. He has now taken on the task of accelerating the WIN group to soar higher into the news platform. 

WIN NEWS is in the process of hiring the best talents in the Tamil television industry. 

Shyam said, “WIN NEWS is the new avatar of the vintage brand. I’m sure there is ample scope for a good news channel. We will be positioning it as a people’s channel with the tag ‘Üngalukaga Ungaludan’, which means that ‘For the People and with the people’.  I’m confident that with a veteran like Ram leading the editorial and with a visionary leader like Devanathan, we are going all out to win.”  

Devanathan, Chairman, WIN Group, said, “No one can plough a field just by imagining. So I’m here to translate my imagination into a reality with my vibrant team.”

Ram, News Director of WIN NEWS, who will be taking complete charge of content, said, “Waiting is over, we are here to execute. Currently people are averse to sensational and superficial media reporting and certain areas like development journalism is almost untouched by Tamil television media which will be our focus and USP.”
