The who’s who of Indian news television industry came together to celebrate its best and the brightest at the exchange4media Indian News Broadcasting Awards (eINBA) 2010, held in Delhi on September 1. It came as no surprise when Subhash Chandra, doyen of India’s satellite television industry, was inducted into the Hall of Fame for Continuing Contribution to Industry (Entrepreneur). Chandra shares his views with echange4media on winning the Award.
Subhash Chandra, Chairman, Essel Group and Chairman, Zee Group, said, “When I announced my receiving this Award in my organisation, there was a resistance and my team complained that they do not get any awards from exchange4media. I told them that being a media company, we should be giving awards rather than expecting to receive awards. I am proud of the fact that Zee has contributed some of the finest people to the industry. I want to accept this award on behalf of the entire media industry, with all humility and permission.”
In the third edition of e4m INBA, awards were given in 26 categories. Salman Khurshid and Rajeev Shukla were among the prominent political faces present at the awards ceremony.
