ANI’s former Bureau Chief Lokendra Singh launches XYZ News Agency

In a strategic move the multimedia news agency ANI’s former Bureau Chief Lokendra Singh who was heading agency’s Rajasthan operation since 2004 announced the launch of his own news agency XYZ.

XYZ is world’s first of its kind news platform that cater the need of regional news channel. Based out of New Delhi, XYZ News Agency has unique features with a network of over 2000 field reporters spread across the country.

Speaking on the launch Lokendra Singh, Founder & CEO said “XYZ is entirely different as compare to all available news agencies in the country. At present the news agencies in the Indian market are focusing on National Channels and packages are so expensive that a regional channel can’t afford. Hence, at XYZ News Agency we are focusing on regional channels as a cost-effective option where content will be supplied as the demand of a channel. Interestingly we are also giving an option of ‘Payment on usage only’ which means a channel has to pay for only that content which it is using.”

XYZ is a multiuser platform with unique features such as Free Preview facility, Stringers’ feed and payment management, Story on Demand, Customized Editorial Agenda, extra revenue generation feature, dedicated and secured path for news collection, very secured feed box system to maintain news exclusivity, best platform for freelancers etc.

“Like I mentioned above XYZ is a cost-effective platform it gets activated within 30 seconds and there is no 2 MB point to point line requirement and also there will be no expenses on broadcast engineers to maintain feed. We also offer exclusive early morning bytes so that channel can get exclusive reactions of celebrities and politicians on various issues regularly. We are offering everything and anything as per the requirement of our clients that’s why we are XYZ News Agency.” added Singh.

The official announcement was made last week at Hotel Marriot, Jaipur in the presence of all media veterans from Rajasthan including Mr. Jagdish Chandra, Regional Head, Zee News, Mr. SK Surana, MD, Jan TV, Mr. Virendra Chaudhary, CEO, First India News, Mr. Anil Lodha, CEO, A1 TV among other representatives of all regional and National news channels.

Crime Patrol देख कर एक तरफ़ा प्यार करने वाले मजनू ने की छात्रा की हत्या

Sony TV पर Crime Patrol और Life Ok पर Savdhan India दो ऐसे शो है जो दर्शको को अपराध और अपराधियों से सतर्क करने का दावा करते है, लेकिन हालही में राजस्थान के बांसवाड़ा जिले में हुए छात्रा के हत्या कांड के खुलासे ने इन चैनेलो के दावों को ना सिर्फ झुठलाया है बल्कि आपराधिक गतिविधियों को बढ़ावा देने के लिए जिम्मेदार भी ठहराया है.

दरअसल राजस्थान के बांसवाड़ा जिले का है जहाँ एक छात्रा की हत्या से सनसनी फ़ैल गयी थी. मामला एक तरफ़ा प्यार का था, जहाँ लड़का लड़की से प्यार करता था. जब लड़की ने प्रेम का प्रस्ताव ठुकरा दिया तो लड़के ने Crime Patrol से प्रेरित हो कर अपने जन्म दिन के बहाने एक आखरी बार मिलने बुलाया था, लड़की जब मिलने पहुंची तो उसकी हत्या कर दी गयी.

अपराधी को गिरफ्तार कर लिया गया और उसने अपना ज़ुर्म भी कबूल कर लिया है, पुलिस कार्यवाही भी कर रही है. लेकिन अब सवाल ये उठता है कि आज हम २१ वीं सदी में होने के बावजूद भी देश में ऐसा माहौल बनाने में विफल रहे है जहाँ महिलाओ को एक सुरक्षित वातावरण मिल सके. महज़ किसी सीरियल या फ़िल्म से प्रेरित हो कर युवा इस तरह की घटनाओ को अंजाम दे रहे है तो इसका मतलब ये है …
