'బెస్ట్ యాంకర్స్'--రోజా, సౌజన్య, రజనీకాంత్

గత వారం మేము నిర్వహించిన 'బెస్ట్ యాంకర్/ప్రజెంటర్' సర్వేలో ఉత్సాహంగా పాల్గొన్న అందరికీ ముందుగా కృతఙ్ఞతలు. మీరు మెచ్చిన యాంకర్స్ ముగ్గురు:

1)  రోజా (ఐ-న్యూస్)

2) సౌజన్య (మహా టీవీ)
3) రజనీకాంత్ (TV-9)


ఈ సర్వేలో ఒక గమ్మత్తు జరిగింది. 'వరస్ట్ యాంకర్' ఎవరు? అన్న ప్రశ్నకు కూడా రజనీకాంత్ కే అందరికన్నా ఎక్కువ మార్కులు వచ్చాయి. ఏ ఒక్కరూ రోజా, సౌజన్య లను చెత్త యాంకర్ల జాబితాలో చేర్చకపోవడం విశేషం. 

శ్వేతా రెడ్డి (ఎన్-టీవీ), స్వప్న (సాక్షి), కొమ్మినేని (ఎన్-టీవీ) మాకు నచ్చని యాంకర్స్/ప్రజెంటర్స్ అని సర్వే లో పాల్గొన్న అత్యధికులు స్పష్టం చేశారు. విజేతలైన ఆ ముగ్గురు యాంకర్స్ పై సర్వేలో వెల్లడైన అభిప్రాయాలు ఇలా వున్నాయి. 

1) Roja (i-news): Sexy-voice modulation is superb-confident-spontaneity-beautiful- attitude-expressions are pretty

ఒకరైతే..రోజా గారి కోసమే తాను ఐ-న్యూస్ చూస్తానని రాసారు. కంగ్రాట్స్ రోజా గారూ. కీప్ ఇట్ అప్.

2) Soujanya (Maha-TV): Clarity-confident-sweet

3) Positive points of Rajanikanth (TV-9): straightforward-smile-హుందా-analytical skills-calm and composed

Negative points of Rajanikanth: Irrelevant questions-untimely smiles and laughter

'దీన్ని ఎలా చూడాలి?', 'దీన్ని ఎలా అర్థం చేసుకోవచ్చు?', 'దీనిపై మీరేమంటారు?', 'దీనిపై మీ వెర్షన్ చెప్పండి?',--ఇవి కాక రజని మరొక ప్రశ్న అడిగితే ఒట్టు....అని ఒకరు రాసారు. 

రజని తర్వాత, శ్వేతా రెడ్డి, కొమ్మినేని లు నచ్చని యాంకర్స్ జాబితాలో చోటు చేసుకున్నారు. తెలుగు కు తెగులు పట్టించిన యాంకర్ స్వప్న అని కొందరు రాసారు. అదే 'సాక్షి' ఛానల్ లో ఇటీవల చేరిన మురళీకృష్ణ గొంతులో స్పష్టత లేదని ఒకరు చెప్పారు. 

చక్కని విశ్లేషణకు కూడా ఒక ప్రైజ్ ఇవ్వాలనుకున్నాం కానీ...ఒక్కరు కూడా సరిగా ఆ పనిచేసినట్లు కనిపించలేదు. మొత్తం మీద...ఈ సర్వే లో పాల్గొన్నందుకు అందరికీ థాంక్స్. విజేతలకు బహుమతులు పంపుతున్నాం. ఆ ముగ్గురి ఫ్రెండ్స్ ఈ బ్లాగ్ చూస్తే...వారికి ఈ విషయం తెలియజేయాల్సిందిగా కోరుతున్నాం. ఇలాంటి కార్యక్రమాలు మరిన్ని ఉంటాయని తెలియజేస్తూ...సెలవ్...

Roja's is voice is good and matured. But her dress sense is worser than any other anchor..no doubt.

Congrats Roja garu for winning the bst anchor prize by the Media kaburlu blog.
No doubt Roja is a very good looking and beautiful girl.As the comments reveal I feel Roja won the prize for her beauty,sexy voice and her looks and one friend is bowled by Roja's beauty as he switches to i news for her only as there are many tennis fans for beautiful lady players irrespective of their game.But the senior anchors lost the game to Roja and Soujanya.However the body language,physique,looks,voice and the proffessionalism got together and won the prize.Good luck to the winners amd I profusely compliment and thank Ramu garu for his initiative in identifying and recognising the talent through the peoples verdict among the anchors

and awarding prizes personally as a good proffessional.

iam shocked after cing komineni,swapna are among worst anchors , becoz this are few anchors who conducts the show with complete control and have knowledge on wht they r discussing...

komineni is best for politics
Swapna is best for general issues (weak in politics when compared to kominene and better than many like rajnikanth)

even many ppl watch kominenei,Swapna shows and TRP ratings also proves that

i pity "tastes of bloggers"

as a senior journalist u shud have not published this (as someone said i watch only for her beauty :-()

Kudos to the winners. I am verymuch confident about winning of Roja from I news. Because she has that zeal and power. She is a real princess of media. And i dont think as anonymous said her dressing sence is poor. She maintains her professional dresses and some times in western wear and they also suit on her. Anyhow once again Congrats Sweet and cute Roja.

Dear Ramu, సర్వే నిర్వహించారు. ఫలితాలు ప్రకటించారు. మీ ప్రయత్నం బాగుంది. ఒకరు ఇలా అన్నారు,ఇంకొకరు అలా అన్నారు అని వ్రాసేకంటే ఆ టపా కి వచ్చిన వ్యాఖ్యలు ప్రచురించవచ్చు కదా. విషయం అందరికి స్పష్టంగా తెలుస్తుంది. మీరు నిష్పాక్షికంగా వ్యవహరించారని అందరికీ అర్థమవుతుంది.

Ramu S said...

అది నిష్పాక్షికంగా నిర్వహించిన సర్వే. ఫలితాలు మీకు అనుమానాస్పదమైతే నేనేమీ చేయలేను. పెడితే అన్ని కామెంట్స్ పెట్టాలి. అందులో కొందరు హద్దు మీరి చేసిన వ్యాఖ్యలు కూడా వున్నాయి. అందుకే ఇలా మోడరేషన్ చేశాను. మీరు భరించక తప్పదు.
థాంక్స్

రాము గారు,

ఆంధ్రజ్యోతిలో రోజుకు ఎనిమిది గంటల పనివేళలు ప్రారంభమయ్యాయి. జర్నలిస్టులకు ఎనిమిది గంటల పనివేళలు వర్తించవు కదా? మరి ఎలా అమలు చేస్తున్నారు? దీని వెనకున్న కథేమిటి? ఈ విషయాలు మీ బ్లాగు ద్వారా అందరికి తెలియజేస్తే బావుంటుంది.
మీ అభిమాని

Iam surprised to read Swapna as a person who has spoilt telugu. She is one of the few news readers/presenters with good diction, pronunciation as a telugu person is supposed to pronounce. She also doesn't let her command over english show on the screen. I also know her personally.

Suggestion (invain because it's over):
You should have conducted the contest separately for women and men. Glamour has taken the place it shouldn't have actually taken. I have no intention of degrading Roja or Sowjanya in this context. I'd seen Sowjanya long back. I haven't even seen Roja. The separate contest would have brought to light some good male news presenters. It would have also given way to discussion on the topic from a different perspective.

Couldn't understand what you meant by ...someone with good presentation.

@Anonymous_who_worried_much_about_kommineni : you totally missed the spirit of journalism and blaming everyone here. except absurd/hatred comments I dont think ramu gaaru has any policy to edit and censor information here. He sometimes publishes negative comments on himself as well. So it's up to you to be matured.

coming to kommineni. Even as an avid TV viewer I cannot tolerate Mr Kommineni. He is worser than anyone beyond what he speaks or knows. He needs to improve his communication skills first.

Congrats to the winners.Ramu garu good initiative.

cant believe people blaming the taste of others.this is an OPINION POLL neither everyone hates a same person nor everyone likes a same person.

but one thing i can say, 'Grow up' and wish Ramu garu for starting a good healthy competition

Ramu, With due respect to the transparency you tried to maintain in the survey, here are my 2 cents. Irrespective of the who the best news anchor was, quite a few discrepancies have crept into the final result.
1.Gender Bias: As Madhuri and some others commented, there has been an inclination towards the fair sex which is absolutely unfair. I know that the news anchors' arena is filled more with females than the males and its quite common that the sample size would represent more in favour of the females. But, the inclination here was more towards the beautiful/sexy/wow/super/nice/good looking females rather than just females. This discrepancy is quite evident from the gist of the comments of voters that you published in your results post. So, do I assume that Oprah Winfrey would never make it to your winners list if she were to be a Telugu news anchor (Obviously she is not good looking)?
2. Emotional Bias: I like one news anchor because he/she is my friend and will vote for him/her. OR I dislike an news anchor because I had an issue with him/her in the past and I would vote against him/her. This kind of emotional bias seems to be dominant in the voting pattern which is evident from your comment "Haddu Meeri Chesina Comments Unnayi". These 'haddu meerina' comments cannot be transformed into an unbiased negative vote. At the same time "haddu meerina abhimanam/attraction" also cannot be an unbiased "positive vote". Do I assume emotions will have to be accepted and ruled out as a unavoidable factor affecting the end result?
Caste Bias: I am not sure if this bias has reflected in the final results, but this is a major factor influencing the professional and personal lives of journalists in Telugu media. Again, if I would vote for a person of my caste will that be a valid vote or if I vote against a person of another caste which I hate, will that be a valid vote. The reason I included the caste bias is because of my personal experience of being looked down/upon by various caste based interest groups when I worked in a Telugu news channel. And this bias has actually influenced when deciding which news anchor should host which bulletin irrespective of their ability to handle the bulletin. Same way, do I assume that more voters from a specific caste will lead to a news reader of that caste being the winner, just like in the case of caste-bank politics?

Thirmal Reddy said...

Regional Bias: This is one more factor equivalent to the caste factor if not even more than that. Regional feelings have been been rampant in Telugu media, even before my entry and even after my exit from media. I'm sure all the votes you received would definitely have a pinch of regionalism in them. I repeat, regionalism is the influencing factor in deciding which news reader hosts which bulletin in many Telugu channels until to date. In a media almost monopolized by a news readers and journalists of a particular region, how can there be an unbiased result. Do I assume that news readers from unvoiced region/regions have to just applause the winners and can never be part of the competing group?
Political Bias: This has more to do with internal politics in Telugu news channels and also atleast something to do with actual politics outside. Which group do you belong to in channel? Which person do you support in the rat race for domination? How many people are jealous of you and waiting for a chance to make you bite the dust? Whom do you envy for their position or power in the news channel? These factors undoubtedly influence even the news readers. So when it comes to protecting your interest group or your undermining the importance of your opponent, we never leave any stone unhurled. So, do I assume that the winners of the poll are not affiliated to any group or the voters have shed their affilitaions before voting.
Ramu, I neither have any vested interest in results of this poll nor do I anything to do with the winners. However, the fact that the votes (comments to be precise) are being deleted from the posts because of their language/tone/sarcasm leaves me saddened. All the above mentioned biases have deeply influenced the poll, so much so, that deserving personalities have become unsung heroes. Hope you understand this and also I suggest you to conduct a closed poll instead of an open poll, where the respondents have nothing but to just vote and leave a comment which can be moderated. By the way I was the anonymous visitor, who has commented on you post a couple of days ago. This time I make myself more identifiable and will do so in the future.

I appreciate Thirumal Reddy garu for his boldness. I wish him success in the fields of his interest. I stongly feel people like him should be in the media, may not be Telugu alone, and make a difference.

Well, I don't belong to his community.
