Newzstreet Media gets Honour of Excellence Award for online news publishing

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the Ministry of Commerce & CII conferred  'Honour of Excellence' Award on Newzstreet Media for Quality Online News Publishing in Video and Text at GES in Media & Entertainment Content Market 2016.

The second edition of Global Exhibition of Services was organized under the aegis of Ministry of Commerce & Confederation of Indian Industry and was held at India Expo Centre in Greater Noida from April 21 to April 23. The event was inaugurated by the Hon’ble President of India Shri Pranab Mukherji and Smt. Nirmala Seetharaman, Minister of Commerce and Industry was the Chief Guest.

On the concluding day of the Global Exhibition several organizations from various sectors including Media and Entertainment, were given Honour of Excellence Awards by the CII and the Ministry of Commerce on the recommendation of the eminent jury. Newzstreet Media was recommended for the award as an emerging digital news start up for quality video and text news publishing.

The word digital in the business of news delivery was treated with a little contempt when Newzstreet Media was established. It was in the year 2010 that a digital news delivery was visualized with a belief that internet will become inseparable in people’s lives and thereby the appetite for consumption of content will enlarge exponentially.

 Newzstreet Media was started by Alok Verma, who was earlier associated with media houses like Zee News Network, Star Interactive and TV Today News Network. Steering through all odds and unfriendly echo-system the Newzstreet Media has today evolved into a well-established and widely circulated Digital News Publishing Platform.

Ahead of its curve the Newzstreet Media has found its niche and moorings by getting recognition from the likes of Yahoo, AP Broadcast, CCTV, English, You Tube, Daily Motion, Rise Films, UK and Blinxx.

Newzstreet Media gathers and produces original video/audio/text content across news, entertainment and current affairs genres. It also produces short documentaries on current affairs topics for government, non-government and educational institutions. The dynamic library of archives is also frequently used for extending visual support to foreign filmmakers who need visuals of events in India.

Newzstreet Media has a very strong Publishing platform-- Newzstreet TV and has also its mobile app available in Google Play Store. Its YouTube channel has over 2000 subscribers and is growing. Newzstreet TV receives over 1.2 million views monthly on YouTube.

Newzstreet Media has also ventured into on-demand and live internet radio platform for online courses in audio (AMOOC) through its IRadioLive App and web portal. IRadioLive has many government and private universities among its users besides the management institution, Central and State Governments, Schools, Community Radio Stations and NGOs.
