Sharala began her career in the newsroom as a reporter in 2017.
During this period, she has covered a range of stories from community-focused ones to major events such as the General Elections. Sharala has a knack of digging out unusual stories and issues, bringing it to the fore.
An intrepid reporter, a number of Sharala’s stories have been nominated and won internal awards for Best TV Story.
One such story, she recalls, was on restaurant owners who insisted preparing and cooking the meals by themselves. This was done to prevent others from learning their secret recipes. The story received encouraging feedback on social media.
Sharala began presenting the Tamil News Bulletin from May 2020.
She holds a B.A. in Communications with a Minor in Business from Singapore University of Social Sciences.
