Radhakrishnan Sreenivasan (R.K as he is addressed) is a Sports Broadcaster. A Physics graduate who later pursued his MBA, RK found his true calling behind the microphone. As someone who was always fond of elocution and debates from his early schooling days in Chennai, RK believed he needed to take the plunge into the world of media. Therefore, armed with passion and passion alone, RK set about carving a career path. Today he is one of the very few Presenters in the country that have hosted a variety of Sport. From Cricket World Cup to Champions League football to Pro Kabaddi League, RK simply loves sport and therefore is comfortable switching from one sport to another.
His first break came in the year 2002 when he joined as a Reporter for ESPN STAR Sports in New Delhi. A year post that he covered the ICC Cricket World Cup in South Africa. Impressed with his work, RK was asked to join ESPN’s Singapore office where he was one of the producers of award-winning Sports bulletin – SportsCenter.
He moved back to India as the lead Presenter/Sports Editor for Neo Sports. As the face of the channel, RK was fronting the cricket broadcast for the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East for the next five seasons where he has had the privilege of working with some of the biggest names in the world of cricket.
From purely an Editorial role, RK moved into management where he headed Football Production for Ten Sports in New Delhi. His role hence wasn’t limited to editorial matters but also extended to maintaining a healthy balance sheet for the organization.
Currently based in Mumbai, RK is exclusively contracted as a Senior Presenter with STAR Sports. In his current role, he has hosted the Indian Premier League, India cricket, the Indian Super League and the Pro Kabaddi League. It has been a good ride over the last 16 years in the world of media for RK who continues to evolve with the one degree he values the most – passion.
