Mr Paul Bangar

“My association with Tamil Radio is and will always be an exciting relationship. Serving the Tamil community via radio broadcast gives me great pleasures and opportunities to network. My first involvement in broadcast was through Tamil Oli in 1997 and later continued with Tamil Cholai, following the merging of the two programs. My passions in broadcasting led to my appointment as the Vice-President of 6EBA managing wider multilingual broadcasting interests. Nevertheless, I still will always be a RJ playing to my many loyal and new fans. The good old sounds of then and now just cannot keep them off the dance-floor.”
