Biography

Ram Ramgopal has worked in newspapers, radio and television for more than three decades, mostly at CNN. His time at CNN has included stints as writer, copy editor, producer, correspondent, field producer and executive producer. (He has the battle scars and grey hair to prove that he indeed worked all those jobs.) His educational training was in geology, but instead of staring at the cross sections of rocks through the microscope, he decided to set his sights on people and events, especially in global affairs. He has worked as a newspaper editor and reporter in India, as a consultant to BBC/Public Radio International/WGBH on their program The World, and as CNN correspondent/producer in New Delhi. Outside work, Ram’s interests include music, motorcycling and cricket.
