'Satyamev Jayate' bags Mumbai Press Club’s RedInk Award

‘Satyamev Jayate’ has received Mumbai Press Club’s RedInk Award for Excellence in Journalism for its path breaking initiative. The Award recognises ‘Satyamev Jayate’s remarkable contribution in highlighting social issues that continue to plague modern India and to help create public awareness through the pioneering TV programme.

Uday Shankar, CEO, STAR India was honoured with a special award for featuring gutsy journalism on a general entertainment channel through ‘Satyamev Jayate’.

While receiving the Award, Shankar said, “‘Satyamev Jayate’ was our modest attempt to bring to the fore many important challenges that modern India continues to grapple with. It was an initiative to offer a public platform to issues that concern all Indians. While I am delighted to see these efforts being recognized, the focus should continue to be on the issues and all those working to make a difference.”

N Ram, the former Editor-in-Chief of The Hindu, and veteran author-journalist-activist Kuldip Nayar were honoured with the RedInk Lifetime Achievement Award by Chief Guest K Sankarannarayanan, Governor of Maharashtra.

Veteran journalists and senior editors from across the country attended the evening that was hosted by The Times of India columnist Bachi Karkaria.

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Manish Tewari, Uday Shankar and N Ram participated in a panel discussion on ‘Keeping Media Free and Fair’, which was moderated by Times Now’s Arnab Goswami.
