P. Gunasegaran. Anyone who used to work in the Echo, the great Penang rag that folded in the Eighties after going "national", has to be a veteran. And Guna is as seasoned a journalist as the best of them.
From the Echo, he moved to The Star, the Business Times, Malaysian Business, and the Edge. In between papers, he worked with several major corporations, including an international bank and, most recently, the merged entity that was supposed to be called Synergy Drive but ended up with the name Sime Darby.
This morning, he reported for work at The Star again, this time as its Managing Editor in charge of the daily business news and the weekend's business pullout. Expect the competition to respond accordingly.
Heard The Edge is already talking to some senior economic journos from the other papers, including a young bhut senior editor from the NSTP.
