Sindhu Sooryakumar, is the Chief Coordinating Editor of Asianet News Since 2006. Sindhu Sooryakumar has hosted nearly 635 episodes of ‘Cover Story’, a weekly news analysis show.
She moderated a spirited discussion on a popular Malayalam TV news show on whether celebrating Mahishasur Jayanti could be considered an act of treason. she has received over 2,000 abusive calls on her mobile, allegedly from activists and sympathisers of various pro-Hindutva groups, accusing her of calling Durga a “sex worker” during the show.
The advent of electronic media has opened up avenues for women journalists which started off with news readers, but in the long run it has created a whole line up of very incisive women journalists. This is a paradigm shift in our mostly-patriarchal society. Sindhu Sooryakumar’s programme is one among this development. Her experience in the news bureau for more than 20 years gives a rare insight into the unfolding news events. Sindhu is very clear about her show, which is a flagship programme for Asianet News
