Dinakaran was founded in 1977 by K. P. Kandasamy in support of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) when his father-in-law, S. P. Adithanar, chose to support Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam during its split from DMK. In 2005, Dinakaran was acquired from his son K. P. K. Kumaran by Kalanithi Maran's Sun Network.
In 2006 May, Dinakaran ran into a controversy when it published the results of a series of opinion polls which showed politician M. K. Stalin having more approval than his elder brother M. K. Azhagiri. The Madurai office of Dinakaran was fire bombed and three employees were killed. This led to the resignation of Central Minister Dayanidhi Maran, brother of Kalanidhi Maran from the Union Cabinet.
