नकवी के बाद सुप्रिय को ‘आज तक’ की जिम्मेदारी


शिशिर शुक्ला, मंगलवार, 29 मई 2012


टीवी टुडे नेटवर्क प्रबंधन ने 'आज तक' के चैनल हेड के रूप में सुप्रिया प्रसाद का चयन किया है। समाचार4मीडिया से बात करते हुए टीवी टुडे ग्रुप के वरिष्ठ अधिकारी ने यह जानकारी दी। सुप्रिय प्रसाद अभी तक 'आज तक' चैनल में एग्जीक्यूटिव एडिटर की भूमिका निभा रहे थे। अभी तक 'आज तक' को कमर वाहिद नकवी देख रहे थे। जो कि अब संस्थाने से रिटायर हो रहे हैं। नकवी के पास 'आज तक' के अलावा बतौर न्यूज डायरेक्टर टीवी टुडे के चारों चैनलों की जिम्मेदारी भी थी। गौरतलब है कि सुप्रिय प्रसाद 'आज तक' के साथ सितंबर 2011 में जुड़े थे। उससे पहले वो बतौर न्यूज डायरेक्टर बीएजी फिल्मस के न्यूज चैनल न्यूज24 के साथ काम कर रहे थे। जहां उन्होंने फरवरी 2011 में इस्तीफा दे दिया था।
सुप्रिय प्रसाद ने पत्रकारिता जगत में प्रवेश 1994 में किया जब उन्होंने पत्रकारिता की बारीकियां सीखने के लिए आईआईएमसी में प्रवेश लिया। हालांकि पढ़ाई के दौरान ही उन्होंने प्रभात खबर के लिए रिपोर्टिंग शुरू कर दी थी।  कोर्स खत्म होने के बाद वे 1995 को आजतक के साथ जुड़ गए और तकरीबन 15 वर्षों तक यहां रहे। आज तक के बाद न्यूज-24 की लॉन्चिंग टीम का हिस्सा बने और न्यूज डायरेक्टर के तौर पर चैनल लॉन्च करवाने में प्रमुख भूमिका निभाई।

UGC withholds permission to upgrade IIMC journalism course

The Information and Broadcasting Ministry's plan to upgrade journalism diplomas offered at the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) to Masters level has hit a roadblock, with the University Grants Commission (UGC) withholding its permission.

The IIMC in New Delhi has now been asked to revise its proposal and submit it again to the UGC and the Human Resources Development Ministry.

The IIMC, which is the country's premier journalism institute and its three regional centres in Aizawl, Dhenkenal and Amravati, currently offers Diploma courses in journalism and advertising.

In its Standing Finance Committee meeting held on July 15, 2010, the I&B Ministry had prioritised that it would seek equivalence to Masters Degree for the Post-Graduate Diploma Courses from the HRD Ministry.

Consequently, the Ministry took its proposal to the HRD Ministry but the UGC did not agree with the idea after observing that courses and syllabi that IIMC had proposed for its PG Diploma Programmes was not found to be of Masters level in its current form.

Last week while tabling a statement showing Action Taken notes on a Parliamentary Standing Committee's observations on the I&B Ministry's Demand for Grants (2011-12), the I&B Ministry said that a revised proposal was now being worked at.

"IIMC has been advised by the Ministry of HRD to resubmit the revised proposal after taking into consideration the observations of the UGC so that further necessary action could be taken by them," the I&B Ministry had said in its statement.

The I&B Ministry in its statement also said that the need for an act of Parliament for upgradation of IIMC to an Institution of National Importance was also being examined in the Ministry.
