Smt. Palki Sharma

Journalism is one of the most prominent pillars of Democracy. Some Journalists make it a point to keep that pillar firm, by their extraordinary contribution. Ms. Palki Sharma Upadhyay is one of those journalists. As a journalist as well as a news anchor, Ms. Palki Sharma Upadhyay started her career with Doordarshan, India’s largest broadcasting network, in 2002 as a news anchor and reporter.

She then joined Hindustan Times in 2004 and moved to CNN-News 18 to become its anchor and Senior Editor. In 2019, she joined WION, a multinational English news channel based in New Delhi. After working for three years as the Managing Editor of the channel, she resigned in September 2022. Currently, she is the face of a new show launched on First Post.

In 2007, she was awarded the Best News Reader Award. During the News Broadcasting Awards (ENBA), she was awarded the ‘Best International News Show’ in English for her program, “Gravitas.” Ms. Palki Sharma Upadhyay could be proudly called as one of the most popular youth icons in modern Journalism. In recognition of Ms. Upadhyay’s contribution to journalism in Bharat and in appreciation of her fearless anchoring, we, at MIT World Peace University, Pune, feel privileged, today on 3rd February 2023, to confer upon Ms. Palki Sharma Upadhyay the Bharat Asmita Jana Jagaran Shreshta Award for best use of Mass Media/NGO.
