As a television news channel, the journey has been a long and an arduous one. Just over 15 years old and it seems like such a long time. Memories flash past – ‘the best of times, the worst of times…’

We covered all stories that mattered, day in and day out - the sad stories and the happy ones, the in-depth investigations and the sting operations, the politics of entertainment and the entertaining politics, the sordidness of crime and the depravity of public figures, the fundamentalism of the Right and the fundamentalism of the Left and the self-righteous Middle Path, the flourishing businesses and the flourishing trade unions, the activist and the opportunist, the agony of the victim and arrogance of the perpetrator – we covered all these and more. And we will continue on the same path tirelessly, truthfully and without prejudice, upholding the torch of honest and decent journalism•

Team strength

The image of a man with the gentle visage, the flowing beard and the resounding baritone, often referred to as Kannadi Gopakumar is well entrenched in Malayali psyche as the crusader for the marginalised.

TN Gopakumar leads one of the finest news organisations in the country from the forefront supported by a team of experienced and well-known journalists with unparalleled track records. These include Executive editor CL Thomas, N.K. Raveendran, S. Biju, P.G. Suresh, Prasanth Raghuvamsam, Mangad Ratnakaran, P. Mohanan, Sindhu Sooryakumar, Shahjahan, Abhilash,  Suresh Kumar, Jimmy James, Vinu V. John, Alakananda and many others.

And then there are the backroom boys - men and women, working quietly behind the scenes, keeping the engines running – ranging from technical personnel to accounts and administration. All of it resting on the bedrock of a great and inspired management team.
