“A lot of work was put in by the entire team who covered cyclone Phailin. This award in a way is celebrating the entire team and telling them that hard work pays. The entire team was driven by passion and curiosity to tell a story about those who were affected by the cyclone. I guess that worked the most and no dramatics but real story of people,” said Karma Paljor, Business Editor, CNN-IBN.

IBN7 of the same group won awards for Best Spot News Reporting- Hindi (Amit Pandey - Kahan Ho Maa), Best Continuing Coverage by a Reporter- Hindi (Amit Pandey - Cancer wala Gaon) and Best Public Service Campaign for a Brand by a News Channel- Hindi (‘Idea’ presents Citizen Journalist).

Sanjay Pugalia of CNBC Awaaz, Hindi business channel from Network 18 group, won News Television Editor-in-Chief of the Year- Hindi. “This award highlights how business genre is becoming the mainstream and has become a product of mass consumption. Media in this country has developed in terms of technology, but there is still a challenge in content and good journalism. The most important thing is to restore good journalism and the changing scenario of media platform. Technology has made it even more challenging. Business journalism needs to be kept alive in the mainstream media, whether print or television,” said Pugalia, Editor-in-Chief of CNBC Awaaz and CNBC Bazaar.
