Careers in media

Media has emerged as a very powerful instrument of social, economic and political change throughout the world. There is hardly any field which is not touched or covered by the media. It has its presence and impact in every sphere. It is rightly called the Fourth Estate. In our country, media scene has totally changed particularly in the past two decades following the new policy of globalization. As of now, there are nearly 80000 newspapers and periodicals, nearly 250 radio stations, 400 transmitters, about 500 TV channels, and about 300 private FM radio channels. These cover almost the whole country in terms of readership, viewership and ‘reach’. This journey of all-round growth of media is going — from strength to strength.(EN)
