What’s next for ‘the scariest man in Malaysia’ ?


(Marketingmagazine.com.my) –  By: Malati Siniah

Veteran journalist R. Nadeswaran, better known as “Citizen Nades” thanks to his longstanding column in The Sun, shocked many when he announced his retirement yesterday on his Facebook page.

The award-winning journalist who has been in The Sun for 17 years has never been afraid to speak his mind. Celebrated for raising the bar in journalism Nades has received numerous awards including excellence in editorial by ADOI and Kancil’s Media Personality of 2009.

In his Facebook post Nades thanked his supporters and shared that his next project would be to publish his book “Curi Curi Malaysia – the stories behind the stories” slated to launch in February.

Responding to MARKETING’s queries on if he would still continue to his column, be it online or on print Nades shared,

“I have not decided anything yet. The book is a priority and after that, a bit of travelling. “
