NEW DELHI: In a attempt to infuse new and fresh talent, the public broadcaster Doordarshan has invited youngsters to join the organisation as anchors and presenters.

Applications have to be sent in a prescribed format latest by 31 August to the presentation unit of DD Kendra Delhi.

In a notice on its website, DD has called upon graduates between 21 and 35 years of age with interest and expertise in media, theatre, art, literature, music, sport and agriculture etc, to become anchors and presenters on Doordarshan.

The pubcaster has often faced criticism in the Parliament and outside for sticking to the same anchors and presenters for several years.

But, with attempts being made to get a new logo and turning DD into a brand that every Indian can identify with, DD wants the young to “Be the face and voice of Doordarshan... India's public service broadcaster.”

The application format available on the website also wants details of previous experience in broadcasting, apart from a one-page write-up on why the applicant wants to join DD.
