The third edition of Star News MQ – What’s your Media Quotient? quiz, starting with the Delhi regionals, couldn’t have had a stormier beginning on May 6, 2011. Held under challenging circumstances of high velocity winds that nearly wrecked havoc at the venue, the charged atmosphere added to the keenly competitive spirit of the participants.

The duo comprising the Godrej/Accenture team won the Delhi round of Star News MQ 2011 scoring 130 points. Rohan Khanna of Accenture and Kumar Vaibhav Tanwar of Godrej & Boyce showed remarkable team spirit and coordination to win a place in the finals, which will be held in Mumbai on May 27, 2011.

Giving some keen competition to the winning pair was the team sporting an interesting name – the Crew Cut Clan – comprising the duo from Aaj Tak/ TOI Group. Sorbojeet Chatterjee of TV Today Network and Aman Nayar of The Times of India Group scored 100 points to be runners up of the Delhi round.

Quiz masters Sudha Natrajan, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Lintas Media Group, and Senjam Raj Sekhar, Senior Vice President and Head - Group Corporate Communications, Bharti Enterprises took charge of the evening’s proceedings and got the best out of all the participants.
