धनबाद में एफएम रेडियो इसी साल

By Prabhat Khabar | Publish Date: Feb 25 2015

लगेगा 10 केवीए का ट्रांसमीटर, 70 किमी की परिधि तक एफएम सुना जा सकेगा
अब तक होता रहा है धोखा
रवि मिश्र
धनबाद : रेडियो परमन की बात कहने वाले नरेंद्र मोदी की सरकार से धनबाद में एफएम सेवा शुरू होने की उम्मीद बढ़ गयी है. हालांकि अब तक की कहानी काफी निराशाजनक है. उम्मीद का कारण यह है कि धनबाद के प्रभारी और आकाशवाणी रांची के डिप्टी डायरेक्टर (इंजीनियरिंग) चंद्रशेखर जोर देकर कहते हैं कि छह महीने से एक साल के अंदर धनबाद में एफएम सेवाएं शुरू हो जायेगी. प्रोजेक्ट सेंक्शन है, इक्यूपमेंट कुछ दिनों में आनेवाले हैं. 10 केवीए के ट्रांसमीटर से 70 किलोमीटर की परिधि तक एफएम सुना जा सकेगा.

Mann Ki Baat: Holding on to the power of words


Prime Minister Narendra Modi's latest 'Mann Ki Baat' on All India Radio was just the right action at the right time. He addressed the students who would appear for board and competitive exams at length. He shared his own experiences and tried to empathize with the students and inspire them in return.

The fact that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi is taking out time from to develop a connect with the students is a highly appreciable. What is even more praiseworthy is that Mr. Prime Minister is using the public broadcaster not only for propagating his government's plans, policies, programmes and ideas but also to just associate with the common people and the issues that affect them, especially the youth and students.

‘मन की बात’ से रेडियो के प्रति रुचि बढ़ी

आकाशवाणी और दूरदर्शन सरकार द्वारा संचालित लोक प्रसारण के घटक हैं. पूरे देश में आज भी इन दो सेवाओं की अपनी एक अलग पहचान और पहुंच है. जहां कोई अन्य मनोरंजन एवं सूचना के साधन न हों, वहां ये दो सेवाएं महत्वपूर्ण भूमिकाएं निभाती हैं. इनकी अपनी सामाजिक, सांस्कृतिक और राष्ट्रीय महत्ता के बावजूद सरकारी उदासीनता के कारण विशेष कर आकाशवाणी को क्षति पहुंची है.

Jawhar Sircar critiques the current state of journalism in print, TV

Writer: Abid Hasan - Tuesday, Feb 03,2015 8:30 AM

Prasar Bharati Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jawhar Sircar spoke on profitability in news business, in-depth journalism and the impact of digitisation at exchange4media's NewsNext 2015 conference.

Sircar said volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity or 'VUCA' would lead the world in the 21st century. "There is no set path in the TV industry and the primary reason for VUCA is TRP," he said.

He compared TRP with a carnivorous animal. Sircar said, "This animal blackmails everyone. At present, it is monopolising in India, but this monopoly will end shortly. Soon, we will get a more transparent industry lead body."

He added that the game of television rating points (TRP) was becoming controversial with each passing year.

Sircar also took a dig at in-depth journalism in print and television media. He pointed out how non-researched content was being carried by both the print and TV industry. He also talked about the digitisation of news, saying that now-a-days readers looked for a story on web.

I&B admits: It does a daily chai pe charcha with ‘autonomous’ DD, AIR

Written by Archna Shukla | New Delhi | Posted: February 3, 2015 4:40 am | Updated: February 3, 2015 4:43 am

Every morning, directors general of Doordarshan and All India Radio as well as heads of all media units under the Information & Broadcasting Ministry have to attend a meeting with I&B Secretary Bimal Julka. He calls these discussions "chai pe charcha".
For the past seven months, Julka has been chairing the meetings. Despite Prasar Bharati being an autonomous body, a senior official said these morning meetings were obligatory.
Sources said the primary agenda of the daily meetings was to plan, design and implement strategies to promote the work done by the government.
Defending the meetings, Julka said, "The idea is to bring all government media units together and chart out plans for disseminating information about government programmes and promoting them. There is no interference in the functioning of DD or AIR."

The I&B Ministry has been mandated to improve the "working" of DD and AIR, he added. "The government has said it wants to make both DD and AIR the most watched channels in the country. Our intention in involving them in our daily charcha is limited to that."
Apart from the DGs of DD and AIR, the heads of Press Information Bureau and Directorate of Advertising and Visual Publicity attend the meetings.
A senior official from one of the units who has been attending the meetings since they began claims, "we keep getting regular inputs from the prime minister's office on communication strategies on various fronts". According to him, the meetings were initiated after a directive "from the top".
