`Sun is not in TV, but communications'

The Hindu Business Line : `Sun is not in TV, but communications': "After dominating the Southern market for at least a decade with a variety of television channels like Sun, Gemini and Udaya, Kalanithi Maran, Chairman & Managing Director of the Sun Network, plans to get into the print media with the launch of a newspaper later this year � what language to begin with, he's not telling as yet. In a free-wheeling interview to Catalyst at the Sun TV headquarters on Chennai's Anna Salai, Maran spoke on a variety of subjects; the juicy bits were off the record and will need to be told only when he's ready to lift the lid on it."

Given their proximity to The Hindu group I doubt whether SUN TV will start a English newspaper. My hunch is they will start vernacular newspapers....Tamil to start with. Further SUN TV might not have the competence to run an English daily. SUN TV had an English news desk sometime ago. They fired the whole team overnight as they realized that English news doesn't really fit into their plans.
