Star News on a journalist training spree

MUMBAI: Star News has initiated the largest journalist trainee programme in the Indian news channel industry. The channel has recently recruited and trained a batch of 20 trainees in each and every aspect of news channel operation. 

This batch of 20 has been recruited from the campuses of some of India?s leading schools of journalism like Indian Institute of Mass Communication, Asian College of Journalism etc. These trainees were selected on the basis of their performance in a written test and two rounds of interviews and were put through a rigorous five week training program before they begun their duties.

The training programme comprises well knit, integrated modules aimed at rotating the trainees through the various departments and functions like assignment-desk reporting, script-writing, editing and packaging, broadcasting, sales and marketing.

The initiative is part of Star News' endeavour to infuse and cultivate fresh talent. This first batch of 20 young trainees, who have successfully graduated from this programme will add tremendous vigour to all aspects of the channel, an official release states. The training so provided, imbibes the core values of news making; that of accuracy, speed, credibility and unbiased reportage. 

The idea behind initiating such programme was 'Learning and Innovation' for progress and betterment of the individuals as well as the organisation, so as to ensure a recurring value addition and growth in key business initiatives.
