MUMBAI: This day fourteen years ago, the idea of Indiantelevision.com was born. It became the one-stop information resource for the blossoming television industry and also for its surrounding ecosystem.

Indiantelevision.com has witnessed the evolution of the television entertainment business in India and it growing into a Rs 17,000 crore industry today.

Indiantelevison.com chronicled the rise of Rupert Murdoch’s Star in 2000 with the grand success of Amitabh Bachchan-hosted ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ and the emergence of dominance of Ekta Kapoor shows in 2003, to the game-changing events of 2013 – digitisation in the top 42 cities, 12-minute per hour cap on advertisements, and the setting up of Broadcast Audience Research Council, a joint initiative of all the stakeholders for their own television ratings service.

Before we entered our fourteenth year, the Indiantelevision.com website was re-launched, giving it a new look to be in tune with the prevailing times.

Innovation has been the only constant at Indiantelevision.com and it will continue to be.

On our 14th anniversary, this is what the industry leaders have to say about the journey of Indiantelevision.com so far…

Life OK, general manager, Ajit Thakur 

It has been an incredible 14 years for the television industry. Indiantelevision.com is a great place for people like us to stay up-to-date on what is happening. A few things that come to my mind when it comes to Indiantelevision.com are that it is driven by Mr. Anil Wanvari who is one of the most influential and knowledgeable people in the industry on television. Also, the website stays abreast with any news in the industry and you can rely on Indiantelevision.com to report it. Most importantly, the journalists are very insightful and they know what is happening 24*7. 

Everest Brand Solutions, president, Dhunji S Wadia

Indiantelevision.com is the most comprehensive and speedy information site, especially the MAM section which is most relevant for our industry.  No other site covers the all aspects in this detail.

Hathway Cable & Datacom, chief executive officer, Jagdish Kumar

Indian Television Dot Com is an integral part of the television growth story in India. The first thing that every professional in this sector does is log on to the Indiantelevision.com’s website to get the update on what is happening in the industry. I wish that the website continues with the good work.

Indian Film and Television Producers Council, co-chairman JD Majethia

Indiantelevision.com is a pioneer. I wish great success to the entire team. It’s a good source, where people can get day-to-day updates and we are incomplete without Indiantelevision.com. The team working there is doing a fabulous job.

NBA president and NDTV executive vice chairperson K V L Narayan Rao

Indiantelevision.com is a very good site. It has grown at the same pace as the industry has. It has done a great service to keep the industry updated and has been a reasonably important voice from the point of view of influencing people.

BARC, chief executive officer, Partho Dasgupta

Congratulations to Anil and the whole team for this landmark achievement. I enjoy the level of detail that goes into every story. There is aggression in the team to get the stories. The website has been really helpful for the entire ecosystem.

Provocateur Advisory, principal, Paritosh Joshi

For a lot of communications industry professionals, Indiantelevision.com has been a daily port of call for as long they can remember. Whether it is staying abreast with the latest news particularly that which impinges on the sector or understanding the views of well-regarded opinion leaders, the site provides a quick digest of critical information. Novices to the industry find an endless mine of learning while thoroughbreds too take away fresh inspiration. Indiantelevision.com has led innovation in trade journalism focused on the communications industry and spawned several copycats too. But then imitation is flattery so that can't be bad!

Dish TV, CEO, R C Venkateish

Indiantelevision was the first such portal that gave information on major industry developments. Over the years it has evolved to be a definite destination for people who want to keep up with all the goings on in the industry and also a valuable source of information and opinion on a lot of things. It is fast off the block in terms of being able to provide latest and quick developments. Wish you all the best for years to come.

Colors, CEO, Raj Nayak

Indiantelevision.com started in front of me. I remember the days when Anil used to report and write the copies himself. He has come a long way from where he started. It is a story to be told.

IBF, secretary general, Shailesh Shah

I have dealt with Anil Wanvari and five other journalists working at indiantelevision.com.  Their enthusiasm and energy are invigorating.  Their youthful brazenness gives the team the right to call themselves a "free-speech-user" of the fourth estate.  I think the time has come to become a mature participant in the industry, showing responsibility without losing the enthusiasm, energy and youthful brazenness.

Madison World, chairman and MD, Sam Balsara

Over the years Indiantelevision.com has played a very useful role in the lives of advertising and marketing community. I wish the team all the very best for the next 140 years!

DEN Networks CEO, SN Sharma

I congratulate indiantelevision.com family on successful completion of 14 years of service. Indiantelevision.com has been one of the oldest and a one of a kind source for disseminating information and promoting the cause of the media and broadcasting industry. I am sure that you will carry on with the good work and wish you all the best for your future endeavors.

AXN Networks India, business head, Sunil Punjabi

Indiantelevision is my everyday destination for the most precise, relevant and trustworthy media and entertainment news. My best wishes to them for celebrating success and credibility for the last 14 years and many more to come.

Sony Pix, EVP and business head Saurabh Yagnik

Congratulations to Indiantelevision on completing 14 years of impactful reporting. The team believes in delivering resonating stories which aptly represents the television industry. Each story dwells on the topic long enough to provide wholesome and holistic information on that particular topic. I wish them the very best and hope they continue with the wonderful work they are doing. Indiantelevision.com gives a good insight in to the Indian TV industry. Also, the way the company explored in other areas is also a very commendable thing. Wish you guys all the best. May you scale greater heights…

(There is no harm in self-flattering, once in a while, Thank you for the support)
