Colleagues and staff praised him as a visionary leader, a teacher, an inspiration and an outstanding example for media people. At the farewell party held at the Nation University building, Suthichai was mobbed by colleagues, Nation alumni and well-wishers who posed for photographs with him. These included the first English-language newspaper wholly owned by Thais, the first daily business newspaper (Krungthep Turakij), the first public television iTV, and the first non-government radio news programme. He became an assistant news chief at the English-language newspaper and later was promoted as its local news editor, despite his young age and lack of a diploma. It was called The Voice of The Nation, which would later be known as The Nation Review five years later, and The Nation now.
