NT Awards to confer Lifetime Achievement Award to Aroon Purie

MUMBAI: is all set to confer India Today Group editor-in-chief and chairman Aroon Purie with News Television‘s (NT) Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to the TV news industry.

Purie is among the select few who have been instrumental in redefining journalism in India. In 1975, he founded the India Today Group, which is now acknowledged as one of India‘s most diversified media conglomerates.

Purie‘s understanding of the Indian media space is reflected in the number of media properties he has successfully started. The TV Today Group has launched a pack of four news channels with Aaj Tak as a leader in the Hindi space.

The NT awards will be held on 9 August in New Delhi at the second Indian News Television Summit 2008, which will see well known faces of the TV News fraternity discussing "commercialisation" and "regionalisation" of news.

The event will kick off with a welcome address by Indiantelevision Dot Com founder, CEO and editor-in-chief Anil Wanvari, followed by an industry report. Ministry of information and broadcasting secretary Sushma Singh will deliver an industry keynote during the occasion.

Different news channels will present their perspectives in a panel discussion, titled The Commercial Imperative. The summit schedule also includes an interactive sesion with Al Jazeera English managing editor Tony Burman and a post lunch session on "Regionalisation seeking pockets of success."
