Tanuja Raghoo is the proud founder and president of Caribbean Spotlight Television Programming, the first full-service Indo-Caribbean media network in New York
An accomplished Guyanese television host and producer, Tanuja Raghoo began her tenure in the television industry nearly 25 years ago. Her company, Caribbean Spotlight Television Programming, launched in 1986, airs on several television programmes on two Time Warner Channels, Channel 96 and ITV Channel 77, and soon on local television network TVG/ 28.
In an interview with Guyana Times Sunday Magazine, Tanuja said she first entered the business as co-host with her father, Eshri Singh, a legendary Guyanese broadcaster of more than 50 years. He was a well-known radio personality on the then Radio Demerara in Guyana. With unparalleled professionalism, personality, and humility, she continues to strive for excellence in broadcasting, and is highly regarded as the best Indo-Guyanese and Indo-Caribbean broadcaster in her community.
Tanuja continues taking Guyanese/ Caribbean television programming to the next level, airing Guyanese and Caribbean programmes seven days a week, with her goal to selflessly promote the rich culture of Guyana and the Caribbean across the airwaves. For her ongoing commitment and outstanding service and performance in her community, she has earned many awards over the years from various organisations, senators and city council members.
She most recently was nominated for the Lifetime Achievement Award, a proclamation presented by New York State Senator, Joseph Addabbo.
A New York resident since 1983, Tanuja arrived in the U. S. with her parents to pursue the ‘American Dream’. She holds a BS degree majoring in Psychology and Business, and an MBA in Business/ Finance.
