me Sanjoy Chaki now the senior staff correspondent of Channel-i, the first 24
hours digital satellite television in Bangladesh.
the journey was not so much smooth from the beginning of my career. Sometimes I
feel like I’m walking in my dream when I think my earlier days of journalism. I
started my journalism career before completing my higher secondary education
even.. This is indeed a pretty long journey if you think the career of
Bangladeshi journalists. I was the local correspondent ( Kumarkhali
correspondent ) of a local daily in my district namely Kushtia. The names that
daily "The Daily Kushtia”. It is a
Bengali daily. Within a year I was promoted to be the staffs of that daily in
the district headquarter. Then with my hard work I became the top most boss in
that daily. Yes it’s true I became the acting editor. But before that I have
worked as sub-editor and news editor.
I tried to put my footing in the national media industry. From 1998, I started
working as the district correspondent of then most popular Bangla daily "The
Daily Bhorer Kagoj”. Then I have worked for two other reputed and oldest
Bengali daily. One is "The Daily Ittefaq” and the other is " The Daily
that time a new kind of journalism evolved in Bangladesh that is television journalism.
It’s a craze indeed to be a visual media journalist then. and that craze was
initiated by a world renowned journalist Mr Saimon Dring and Ekushey
Television(ETV). With the great success of ETV a revolution took place in the
visual media industry. More private television channel started their journey.
ATN Bangla, Channel-i and NTV were the leading satellite television station at
have got a golden chance to be the district correspondent of NTV. So a new era
of my journalism career started. But another dimenson came in my life. I have
to leave my home town Kushtia for some political and anti-social reason. Some
interest groups became angry with one of my report about drug business and
about anti-establishment. One of our local magazine patronized by defense made
a report on us why we a group of journalists were forced to leave home.
the year 2004 I am working in the capital as a staff correspondent of "The
Daily Bhorer Kagoj”. I want to mention here that this news paper was the pioneer
institution that inspired me to be the mainstream journalism. Just after a one
year I had another golden chance to be the Channel-i correspondent, the dream
institution for any Bangladeshi broadcast journalists. I’m still working with
this station as a senior staff correspondent.
the part of my job I’ve visited Qatar, Sri Lanka,China,
Malaysia, Thailand, D R Congo, Uganda
I have to cover the power and energy related assignment. But being a television
journalist I have to cover some other assignment like politics, Government and
my day to day work I’m trying hard to do online journalism. I’m developing a
online television and website naming " NoTVbangla”.
about the news and entertainment of Bangladesh. Now it’s my dream to
learn the quality online journalism if I get any chance.
