BNS editor attends AFPF-supported multimedia training

Kathmandu, November 10: Representing exiled Bhutanese journalists, Editor of Bhutan News Service, T. P. Mishra participated in a half-day-long Multimedia Training Workshop held yesterday in the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu.

Supported by the United States-based Alfred Friendly Press Fellowships (AFPF), the training was facilitated by Deepak Adhikari, a senior reporter in Kantipur Publications and one of the AFPF Fellows in 2008. Surendra Phuyal and Ghanashyam Ojha, AFPF Fellows in 2003 and 2006 respectively, also shared their experiences during the training sessions.

An estimated 48 mainstream journalists in Nepal including few students of journalism and mass communication faculty, among others attended the training.

Bhutanese journalists in exile in Nepal have rare chances to attend such trainings despite their willingness.
