New Delhi: IBN7, India’s Channel of Impact, has once again won an award at the sixth Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards. At a grand ceremony held in the capital on Tuesday, IBN7 journalist Smita Sharma received the award in the Reporting on Politics and Government category.
She was recognised for her reportage on the Kashmir valley uprising in 2010 and the political dialogue process that followed. Her show Ground Zero Mission Kashmir captured the reasons behind the youth anger and discussed the challenges that lay ahead for the state and central governments to bring about peace and reconciliation in the state.
Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards are one of India’s biggest and most prestigious awards. These awards recognise print and broadcast journalists, who do stories that create a far-reaching impact. Started in 2006 to honour the late Ramnath Goenka, freedom fighter and founder of The Indian Express Group, these awards acknowledge accuracy, courage, credibility and fairness in journalism, and honour the best and the brightest in Indian media every year.
Ashutosh, Managing Editor, IBN7 said, “It gives us great pride to have become a recipient of a Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Award. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Smita Sharma for her undying efforts and encourage all our reporters to continue their excellent work and to strive for the best.”
