During the lecture, Mr Srivastava, who is a senior media professional with over 17 years of experience, explained how distribution of television content has changed over the last two decades.

The interactive session, which was moderated by Dr Shilpi Jha, Associate Professor, saw the students ask several questions on the evolution of television industry and its future.
Mr Srivastava also outlined the status of the radio industry, and the challenges that it faces. The students also learnt about the emergence of online media, and the new opportunities that it was creating.
He urged the students to keep track of technology because the future of media will be shaped by the emerging content creation and distribution models.
