Star News MQ 2011: Bangalore’s turn to test Media Quotient today

Stage is set for another exciting round of the Star News MQ 2011, and this time it is Bangalore that will face the challenging questions posed by quiz masters Prateek Srivastava, Group President, South, O&M, and Rajesh Gangwani, Senior Vice President (South), JWT. Participants can also register at the venue, Matthan, on May 13, 2011.

In an email interaction with exchange4media, Prateek Srivastava said that Star News MQ 2011 was a great platform for those in the advertising and media industry to get together and get wholesome entertainment and also to meet old friends and make new ones.

He added that he was looking forward to “enthusiastic participation, above all. And you never know what new things you may get to learn in the process”. According to him, an event like this required not just great quizzers, but also a great audience and all efforts need to be made to ensure that happened.

When asked whether he would be a tough quiz master or a benevolent one, Srivastava replied, “Tough, but with a smile.” He further said that being an industry veteran, he hoped to recount some interesting anecdotes relevant to the questions being asked.

The Delhi round saw some keen competition and finally saw the duo comprising the Godrej/Accenture team of Rohan Khanna (Accenture) and Kumar Vaibhav Tanwar (Godrej & Boyce) emerge the winners with a total of 130 points.
