Senior journalist and India Today TV Consulting Editor Rajdeep Sardesai has been awarded the 2019 Prem Bhatia Award for Outstanding Political Reporting, in an event held in New Delhi on Sunday, August 11.


The annual award, which carries a prize of Rs 2 lakh, was established in the memory of veteran journalist Prem Bhatia, who was well-known for his political reporting and far sightedness. Every year, two awards are given to distinguished journalists in the fields of political and environmental reporting.


Sardesai has been the recipient of many awards in the past, including the Padma Shri (2008), the Ramnath Goenka award for Journalist of the Year (2007) and the International Broadcasters’ Award for his coverage of the 2002 Gujarat riots and many more.


On winning the award, Sardesai said: “I am delighted to receive an award which is for, of, and by journalists and is widely regarded as one of the most credible awards in Indian journalism. The award is a recognition of not just an individual but of a wonderful team at India Today which worked tirelessly while offering the best election coverage of the 2019 general elections”.
