Two Indian American journalists are among the four winners of the prestigious 2009 [email protected] Awards for Business Journalism, sponsored by the South Asian Journalists Association (SAJA), the Wharton School and the [email protected] online business journal. The Indian origin winners are Sonia Narang, a journalist with NBC News in New York, and Sanjay Bhatt, an enterprise reporter for The Seattle Times. The awards provide journalists with a scholarship to attend the prestigious Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in October. [email protected] and SAJA launched the award in 1999 and later expanded it to include the four organisations in UNITY: Journalists of Colour. "A mortgage crisis, global market turmoil, federal, state and local government budget cuts and tracking federal stimulus money. It's clear that economic and business coverage is important no matter what beat a journalist covers," said SAJA president Sandeep Junnarkar. "The Wharton seminar is an immensely valuable opportunity for journalists to learn about intricacies of business coverage. We're grateful to the Wharton School for the 10th year of continued support." "[email protected] seeks to disseminate the knowledge behind the news, and the continuing support of the [email protected] Awards for SAJA and the UNITY organisations fits in well with this mission," said Mukul Pandya, executive director and editor-in-chief of [email protected] "We are delighted to welcome this year's winners to the Wharton seminars."
