NDTV’s Barkha Dutt bags C’Wealth award

Noted broadcast journalist and Managing Editor of NDTV 24X7 Barkha Dutt has been honoured with the prestigious Commonwealth Broadcasting Association-Thomson Foundation’s ‘Journalist of the Year Award’. She won the award defeating nominations from 53 Commonwealth countries, including the BBC.

During her spanning over 13 years, Dutt has reported stories ranging from the Kargil war to the December 2004 Tsunami. This award is specifically for her reporting in the last one year, from the Kashmir earthquake to the campaign for justice for the Jessica Lall murder case and the communal violence in Vadodara.

"This award means more than any other because you know that you are up against the best in the business. It’s a great honour and I thank CBA for this recognition,” Barkha Dutt said after hearing the news.

The CBA was founded in February 1945 as the Commonwealth Broadcasting Conference. The first meeting held in London brought together the representatives of a number of broadcasting organisations that had co-operated closely in reporting the World War II. It began with only six members but today it is an association of more than 100 broadcasting organisations spread across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, Australasia, the Pacific, and Americas.
