You'd think being a newsreader for 10 years on ETV and Maa is reward in itself. It is not, it seems. At least, ANR does not think so.
Aradhana, along with the Delhi Telugu Academy, is presenting an award to Pragathi, on the eve of her completion of 10 years as a News-Reader, on 18th October, at Sri Thyagaraja Gana Sabha. The award will be presented by Dr. Akkineni Nageshwar Rao, and a gold ring will be presented by T Murali Krishnanraju, the Chairman of Maa TV. A dance program by Praveena and Roopa will precede the award ceremony.
Pragathi is a BA in English Literature, and started her career as a newsreader in ETV and is currently with Maa TV. She is also the CEO of Pragathi Media Links. She has won many awards like one from the Yuva Kala Vahini, the Surya Chandra Award and the Journalist Award.
Aradhana was established by G Venkat Reddy, about 10 years ago. It has given about 150 programs, and every year it gives cash awards and mementos to street children, women in distress, teachers, visually-impaired students, physically handicapped engineering students, clean and green organisations, news-readers etc.
