Tewari urges aspiring journalists to innovate
New Delhi: Information and Broadcasting minister Manish Tewari Tuesday said the challenge before young aspiring journalists, especially those entering professional media, was to innovate and incubate ideas so as to match contemporary trends.
The media landscape had undergone a strategic shift in the manner in which information was now disseminated through different tools including the new media, Tewari said, while addressing students at the 45th Convocation Ceremony of the Indian Institute of Mass Communication here today.
He said the change was also visible in the manner in which information was absorbed by recipients through technology enabled tools.
The minister called upon the graduating students to harness the skills of being potential entrepreneurs.
He said the government was in the process of finalising a proposal to grant the status of `Institute of National Importance` to IIMC with degree granting powers.
The I&B minister also said that self-regulation was the best way forward for media, and as a process, it had to be broad-based and balanced.
In view of the changes taking place in the media space, it had to grow within the overarching statutory architecture existing in the country, he said.
