Who’s Who – Asiavision

Wendy Everett
Director, ABU News
Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) journalist until 2018 when she swapped Melbourne for Kuala Lumpur and television/radio/online news for Asiavision and its 32 national broadcasters. Founding EP of the Australian Network satellite television service before a three-year stint in Honiara with RAMSI’s Solomon Islands Media Assistance Scheme. One of the great joys of Asiavision and the ABU is helping people grow through experiences to achieve their dreams. Likes: Dogs, skiing and vegetables – in that order!
Shabana Jan
News Project Officer
My career is my adventure – I have explored different fields such as education, aviation, interior designing and I worked with some of Malaysia’s prominent figures. Currently in The Media. As Asiavision’s Project Officer, I use my creativity and I also liaise with many cultures – which I love. I would choose Bubble Tea over my son anytime. One of my favourite quotes: “Kindness makes you the most beautiful person in the world, no matter what you look like.”

Nisha Parmanadan
Asiavision Coordinator
Everyone calls me Nisha and I’ve been a broadcast journalist for more than a decade now, both in TV and radio. For almost 10 years, I’ve been rocking it in AVN as a News Coordinator where I collaborate and coordinate news with major newsplayers and newsrooms, both in the region and beyond. I love music, dance and I believe the greatest gift to mankind are the good Turkish and Korean dramas and Running Man (a Korean variety show). I love having fun and being fun! I don’t seek … I create!
Premalatha Jayaraman

My name is Premalatha Jayaraman. I’ve been in journalism for the past 16 years with a local news wire and a mainstream newspaper. My journey in journalism includes general, crime, science and technology as well as business reporting. I am passionate about gardening, cooking, home decorations and pets. More seriously, my friends would describe me as easy going and a good listener. I believe in “where there is love, there is life.”
