A Trailblazing Journalist
Faye D’Souza’s unbiased and fearless reporting has made her the most recognised face in Indian media today. Never one to shy away from asking hard-hitting questions or shutting down sexist politicians, D’Souza rose to prominence when she anchored The Urban Debate on Mirror Now. In 2018, she won The RedInk Award for Journalist of the Year. She has made bite-sized information accessible to India’s youth by translating her mainstream newsroom skills to social media.
Faye D’Souza’s 2020 Power Move
In 2020, as information about COVID-19 overwhelmed us from every possible source, Faye D’Souza emerged as a credible and calming source of facts. Last year, Faye also took her bold and outspoken brand of mainstream reporting and translated it to an entirely new medium–social media. This garnered her a loyal millennial audience who prefer to consume news on the platform they spend the most time on. Indian millennials may not know which news channels to trust, but they trust Faye. Her series ‘News That Should Be Headlines’ on Instagram brought public attention to important stories that were being underreported by the mainstream media.
