Cyber Media, HLL launch career show on DD Metro

MUMBAI: Fair & Lovely Career Baatein, a program on careers aimed at empowering young people, especially women, towards economic self-sustainability is being launched on national broadcaster Doordarshan's Metro channel tomorrow.

Fair & Lovely Career Baatein will initially run on DD Metro for a period of 13 weeks and will air every Thursday in the youth segment of the channel, reaching over 126 cities and covering 35.6 per cent of India's population, an official release claims.

The half-hour program is aimed at the aspiring young Indian - students, young professionals - in cities across India in an interactive, innovative format. Given the weekday slot at 6:30 pm, which shows the maximum viewership for educational and informative programs (non news and current affairs category), it is positioned immediately before the switch to daily entertainment viewing.

Each episode aims to showcase a particular career and examine the issues around it, including insights from a career counselor. A special segment in every episode titled Fair & Lovely Super Achiever of The Week will also highlight an achiever from this particular field. This will be followed by general career tips along with information on admissions, entrance tests, etc, and a segment which highlights campuses of educational institutions - through the eyes of the students themselves and anchored by a student from the concerned campus itself.

This program has been produced in association with the Fair & Lovely brand from Hindustan Lever Ltd, as part of the effort to reposition the brand's identity towards empowerment of women through economic self-sustenance. Towards this end, HLL Fair & Lovely has held career fairs in Nagpur and Chandigarh and has also set up a database on careers-related information, the release says. The program is part of the front-end effort towards this stated goal of empowerment.

The program has been conceived, co-produced and marketed by Cyber TV, a division of infotech media house Cyber Media India Ltd. Cyber TV has earlier produced The Zenith Computer Show, which was anchored by former Nasscom chief, the late Dewang Mehta, again on DD Metro.

"Cyber Media's latest TV initiative, in association with India's largest advertiser and on India's second largest TV channel, is part of the Group's positioning as India's largest mid-size media house in the intelligent information space," said Rachna Burman, advisor, new projects & corporate strategy, Cyber Media Group.
