History

This year marked the launch of 'News Today', an English evening newspaper, part of the Group company's publications. Started by the doyen of Indian journalism T R Ramaswami (TRR), News Today carries forward boldly the rich and varied legacy that he left behind. A member of the Indian Newspaper Society (INS) and published from Chennai, News Today provides news, analysis, features, special columns in an alluring kaleidoscope of neatly-laid out pages. 

As the son of the legendary T R Ramaswami (TRR for friends and admirers), T R Jawahar was born into journalism. T R Jawahar joined the Group as Director. Verily, he was destined for it. With a B.Com from the prestigious Loyola College, he, side-by-side, also became a medal-winning chartered accountant and cost accountant. Circumstances sucked him into the whirligig of journalism and he had to take over the English evening paper that his father had launched, News Today.

'Maalai Sudar', a Tamil Evening newspaper was launched by the Group company. Steeped in the idiom and style that set apart T R Ramaswami (TRR), that journalist par excellence whose vision forms the bulwark of the paper, Maalai Sudar has been charting a new and exciting course in the field of Tamil journalism. Hitting the stands daily at around 3 pm, Maalai Sudar is a veritable buffet of news, pics and everything else.

Talk Media was founded and the first 'TALK' was published. Started as a neighbourhood print media company, Talk Media was the first venture of its nature in Chennai, ably supported by a management team with strong media background. This year saw the subsequent launch of T Nagar, Adyar, Mylapore & Anna Nagar editions. 

This period saw the launch of Vadapalani, Pillar, Nanganallur, Tambaram, Velacheri editions of TALK. 

Talk Media launched 3 more editions - Chrompet, Mugappair, Kodambakkam in the year 2008. The year 2010 saw the launch of 6 more editions - Villivakkam, Selaiyur, Porur, Perambur, Mambalam & Ambattur. 

Talk Media launched 1 more edition - Madipakkam. At a total of 16 editions, Talk Media has over 6.32 lakh copies. Talk Media plans to expand its footprint beyond Chennai & Tamil Nadu soon.
