Senior journalist Rifat Jawaid launches website 'Janta Ka Reporter'

Senior journalist Rifat Jawaid has launched a website called Janta Ka Reporter.

The website has been launched recently and created buzz over Twitter on Arvind Kejriwal’s interview some days ago.

Rifat Jawaid is the founder and CEO of the website. Jawaid is media veteran with more than eighteen years of experience. He has worked with organisations like BBC and Aaj Tak.

The website reports on Sports, Politics, International News, Civics and others areas. 

The website of Janta Ka Reporter says, “The purpose of launching, a 24x7 multimedia website is to revolutionize the way we gather news. Impartiality, objectivity and audience trust will be our guiding principles of our newsgathering ethos.  The common man or janta and NOT the political parties or corporate house will set the news agenda.”   
The website also says, “Modeled along the lines of the BBC, where the founder of this initiative – Rifat Jawaid- had the pleasure of working for over 12 years at a very senior level, this website will promote courageous journalism without taking anybody’s side.

The website will have a team of journalists frequently delivering high impact journalism not just from India but across the world. Something no Indian media can claim to deliver due to the obvious limitation in their newsgathering resources and expertise. Amongst other things, JantaKaReporter will focus on bespoke and original video content and also aspire to have one big interview with a newsmaker of the week.”

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector. The industry needs to exercise a certain level of this self-restraint to prove its commitment to maintaining the best standards in advertising.
