Corporate Entry in Media Challenge for TV Journalism: Rajdeep

Media Hive News Network
Indore, Sept 30, 2013

Increasing number of small-time news channels is posing a challenge to Indian journalism and this media frenzy has only helped the cable TV operators, said senior journalist Rajdeep Sardesai, who was addressing a seminar on topic 'Challenges in journalism in contemporary India jointly organized by Editors' Guild of India and Indore Press Club on Saturday.

Sardesai explained that a number of builders, real estate businessmen, people with strong political support have ventured into the business of TV channel but most of them have suffered losses.

However, cable operators have made money in the past 20 years. The cable operators switched transmission if any negative news about their local leaders were aired by any channel. "As far as content is concerned, channels have to dramatise programmes to increase TRP. Many a time stories with no national or public interest are prepared to get ranking. TV journalism has changed into a box office journalism," said Sardesai.

Journalist Ashutosh said that television journalism should be credited with changing the trends in the society and has reached to grassroot level.

"The influence of market on media in big cities is reflected in the content, display and presentation of different media at regional level. The effect is also a result of the reverberation of the growing influence of regional politicians in Central politics," said Senior journalist Shravan Garg.

Catering to the budding journalists with a quality book, this book has introduced the dynamics of different types of journalistic writings in an interesting and easy way. According to Mr Elahi though primarily written for media students and young journalists, this book is a perfect guide for students of all the streams who wish to improve their English writing skills. The book has many chapters like Leisure Writing, Author’s Pick and Page 3 Journalism etc., which will interest general readers too.

"Nuances of Journalistic Writings will be a useful companion to anyone who is training to be or already in the business of effective communication in the English language,” said P Ramesh Kumar, Assistant Editor, The Times of India.

“While journalists are into the business of writing, what is surprising is that there is hardly any good book on how to do such writing. This book is a good beginning to help fill the vacuum. I hope with his unique way of presenting his views, Raza succeeds in his efforts with this book,” said KJ Bennychan, Chief of Bureau, PTI.

According to Sanjay Kumar, News Editor, Times of India Online, among the highlights of the book are the selections of excellent write-ups to discuss different types of journalistic writings.

Mr Elahi has worked in various capacities in leading national and international newspapers and media groups, including Khaleej Times (Dubai), The Economic Times, The Pioneer and The Financial Express etc. His first book, How to Become a Good Journalist, is very popular among media students and young journalists.
