Rangaraj Pandey is a brilliant journalist and one of the most popular news personalities on Tamil TV as a ‘Thanthi TV Anchor’. Born in Srivilliputtur, Tamil Nadu. Rangaraj Pandey is one of the most recognised news personalities in Tamil Nadu. Known for his no-nonsense anchoring, Pandey hosts two very popular shows on Thanthi TV. While “Ayutha Ezhuthu” concentrates on news debates on important discussions, another show he hosted “Kelvika Enna Baddil” (What is the answer to this question?) is a one-on-one interview with notable news-making personalities. Having completed 150 episodes, some of his notable interviews have been with then prime-ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and BCCI head N Srinivasan. He is renowned for his simple, direct and non-holds barred style of TV anchoring.
Having come out with a 32-page handwritten magazine as a weekly when he was in the eleventh standard, Pandey remained passionate about journalism from a very young age. He did his MA Tamil from Madurai Kamaraj University and then joined Dinamalar in 1999.
After 14 years, he joined Thanthi TV in 2012. Within a span of six months he was promoted twice, becoming the editor-in-chief of Thanthi TV. He also used to pen articles while working for Dinamalar called “Doubt Thanabalu” – a popular satirical column which runs to this day.
