The Press Club of Mumbai will honour the former Editor-in-Chief of The Hindu, N. Ram, and veteran journalist, activist and author Kuldip Nayar with the RedInk Lifetime Achievement Awards for 2013 for “a career dedicated to good journalism.”
Maharashtra Governor K. Sankaranarayanan will present the awards on May 25 at the Tata Theatre in the National Centre for Performing Arts.
Press Club president Gurbir Singh said while Mr. Ram headed The Hindu Group as its Editor-in-Chief for several years, Mr. Nayar is revered as a columnist and peace activist.
“It’s a privilege to honour such distinguished journalists with the RedInk 2013 Awards. Their contribution to the media and professional achievements speak volumes and serve as motivations to us all. We are pleased to felicitate such inspirational personalities,” he said.
Over 20 others would receive awards in various categories for excellence in journalism.
The Lifetime Achievement Award winners are selected by the managing committee of the Press Club based on a survey of leading and senior journalists from all over the country.
