Trinidad’s media mogul Mohan Jaikaran’s WIN communication in trouble

Trinidad: Less than a year after the death of media mogul Mohan Jaikaran, the company that he built is on the verge of shutting down.

Jaikaran’s daughter, Shantel, and her mother, Indra, made the announcement on its television station WINTV.

However, they gave no details regarding problems at the media company.

The mother and daughter held hands as they appealed to the public to support them as they fight to save the company, WIN Communication Limited.

Jaikaran, 64, died on April 12 in his home at Westmoorings after a long illness.

He was the chairman and Chief Executive Officer of WIN Communication Limited, and was a former deputy chairman of Caribbean Airlines.

WIN Communication Limited launched on May 1, 2007, and offered programming mainly centerd around East Indian culture.

In the statement which aired on Wednesday night, Shantel Jaikaran gave no reason for the company’s trouble, but said that there was a possibility of losing their licence from the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago, and that there were people who did not want the company to survive.

Shantel Jaikaran said: “WIN is on the brink of losing everything that has been built on the dreams and aspirations of my late father Mohan Jaikaran, who was the one of the major icons of the promotion of East Indian culture for Trinidad and Tobago. We as a family since his passing have been haunted, hounded and harassed by certain people who for some reason don’t want this station to survive.”.

Shantel Jaikaran also appealed to their audience to join them in the bid to save the company.

“To the hundreds and thousands of listeners and loyal supporters of WIN TV and WIN radio 101.1 we ask you, to join us, in a pledge of support and for due consideration by the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago, to maintain this important voice of East Indian cultural expression.”, she said.
