BEA new executive body in place; Shazi Zaman re-elected President

The Broadcast Editors’ Association (BEA) elected its new executive body at its annual general meeting (AGM) held on October 7, 2011. Shazi Zaman (Star News) has been re-elected as President. Arnab Goswami (Times Now) and Pankaj Pachaury (NDTV) have been elected as Vice-Presidents, while NK Singh (Sadhna News) has been elected as General Secretary and Sudhir Chaudhary (Live India) as Treasurer.

The other members of the Executive Committee include Qamar Wahid Naqvi (Aaj Tak), Ashutosh (IBN7), Ajit Anjum (News24), Satish K Singh (Zee News), Vinod Kapri (India TV) and Vinay Tewary (CNN-IBN).

As the apex body of TV editors, the BEA general body resolved to take on public issues more vigorously so as to make Indian electronic media more people-oriented.

The members expressed concern over the court order imposing a fine of Rs 100 crore against Times Now in a defamation case. The BEA will discuss the matter and seek legal opinion since this issue has implications for the entire body of TV journalists.

At the meeting, the general body also resolved to organise an international seminar on the role of media in a healthy democracy, titled ‘Shooting The Messenger’, in the second week of November.
