Two Indian American scribes win Wharton awards
New York: Two Indian American journalists are among the four winners of the prestigious 2009 Knowledge@Wharton Awards for Business Journalism, sponsored by the South Asian Journalists Association (SAJA), the Wharton School and the Knowledge@Wharton online business journal.
The Indian origin winners are Sonia Narang, a journalist with NBC News in New York, and Sanjay Bhatt, an enterprise reporter for The Seattle Times.
The awards provide journalists with a scholarship to attend the prestigious Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in October.
Knowledge@Wharton and SAJA launched the award in 1999 and later expanded it to include the four organisations in UNITY: Journalists of Colour.
"A mortgage crisis, global market turmoil, federal, state and local government budget cuts and tracking federal stimulus money. It`s clear that economic and business coverage is important no matter what beat a journalist covers," said SAJA president Sandeep Junnarkar.
"The Wharton seminar is an immensely valuable opportunity for journalists to learn about intricacies of business coverage. We`re grateful to the Wharton School for the 10th year of continued support."
"Knowledge@Wharton seeks to disseminate the knowledge behind the news, and the continuing support of the Knowledge@Wharton Awards for SAJA and the UNITY organisations fits in well with this mission," said Mukul Pandya, executive director and editor-in-chief of Knowledge@Wharton. "We are delighted to welcome this year`s winners to the Wharton seminars."
