Close to 2 decades in the Singapore Sports Broadcasting scene, Raj Kumar has worked at Power 98FM, MediaCorp TV Sports (SportsCity) and MediaCorp Radio’s 938LIVE.
He first began his broadcast career as a rookie sports journalist in 1997. And at the turn of the millennium, he left his job as the Sports Editor and turned towards television and signed with SportsCity as a Sports Producer/Reporter. In 2002 though, he returned to Radio and joined the ranks at 938LIVE. And during his 15 years with MediaCorp, he became the ‘Sports Guru’ on Channel News Asia and also appeared LIVE in more than 300 segments on Friday mornings from 2003-2011. From 2002 – 2015, Raj also produced and presented more than 350 Sports Talkshows on Saturday mornings on 938LIVE. Also known as “The RAJMAN”, he is also the only English Radio reporter to have been sent to cover the Olympic Games on back-to-back occasions in 2008 and ’12 in Beijing & London respectively. He still remains the only reporter in MediaCorp’s history to have filed LIVE reports simultaneously from a single event, on multiple stations including Class 95, 987, Gold 90.5, Oli 96.8, 938LIVE, Radio Australia and CNA.
In 18 years as a Sports journalist, he’s interviewed more than 500 local athletes and up to 100 top international names. And from 2000-2014, “The RAJMAN” also became the unmistakable voice and the face of the Live televised S.league matches with his profiles ranging from Producer, Presenter, Pundit, Colour Commentator and Ground-Reporter.
In March 2016 though, the Liverpool FC fan returned to Radio by linking up with his former on-air partner Jeremy Ratnam, as they re-launched the “Power Sports” show – 1-hour Live talkshow on Saturday mornings on Power 98 and with its main focus on local and european football! Since the launch of the new show, they’ve interviewed the biggest and most prolific names in Singapore football during their Live talkshows. Armed with the knowledge and experience from also having worked with several PR agencies, Event Organizers, Marketing & Sales Teams, Sports-governing bodies, Athletes and Officials etc, Raj decided to embark on a new passion and adventure, when he left MediaCorp in June 2015 and launched “RAJMAN Entertainment” on Aug 9th 2015. And his sole purpose – is to create and execute projects and events which will serve to Excite and Entertain the Fans of All races, colours, creeds, beliefs and ages.
