More about him:

Karthigaichelvan, Thanthi TV – “Achu Alasal”   As Chennai lazily wakes up to aromatic filter coffee on weekend, Karthigaichelvan - karthigai selvan iflone of Tamil Nadu’s most well-known and seasoned journalists - takes one through the week’s important news affairs.

Titled “Achu Alasal” (meaning ‘analyzing print’), his show discusses and analyses print and social media topics that have dominated the news cycle that week. It is one of the few shows in Tamil that discusses social media trends. Karthik is among the few journalists who has managed a healthy balance between print and TV journalism.  

Karthik, the name he uses in his day-job is known in the media circles as an all rounder. He broke several major stories and delivered consistently on political journalism through his stints at Tamil political magazines and English newspapers.  

Born at a village in Chidambaram town, Cuddolore district, Karthik’s romance with journalism started, he says, with children’s magazine ‘Gokulam’ when he was in his third grade. What started as an interest gave him his career.    “Achu Alasal” is not his first run-in with TV.

karthigai selvan iflHis first TV appearance was in the 2002 when DD Podhigai sought him out for a ten-minute political-analysis show. He has to his credit around 300 programmes for the same. He has been conducting his present show for 8 months now.

“Earlier I used to read some English and Tamil dailies to keep myself updated. Now, I need to read every single paper including party papers that I get hold of,” he says. He also appears as analyst on many other channels.  

Ask him what has changed over the years and he says politicians have understood the importance of TV media, “Once private channels sprung up especially in the last three or four years they have created a space.

Even politicians are a bit open to accept criticism from them now.” He adds that earlier there were few channels hosting discussions. “Now there is a space to discuss everything,” he says.


Puthiya Thalaimurai TV :

karthigai selvan iflSay “TV journalist” out aloud and the names which come to mind are popular TV personalities in the English and Hindi news arena. But it's not just there, in Tamil Nadu too, there has been a television news revolution in the last few years.

If Sun TV got the best technological turn-around for Tamil TV, it was Puthiya Thalaimurai which changed Tamil TV news content forever when it launched in 2011. And that set off a completely new breed of news anchors who aren’t newsreaders but hardcore journalists. They raise questions, spark off debates and do not take evasive answers lying down. They move beyond cities and bring stories from deep inside Tamil Nadu.

Puthiya Thalaimurai TV is a Tamil news channel headquartered at Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. It is run by Chennai-based The New Generation Media Corporation, along with Puthiya Thalaimurai Magazine. The Channel is viewed channel in Tamilnadu. The channel is known for its neutrality and reflecting people's emotions in their programmes.
