One such dream was the ‘Press Academy,’ which is presently the Media Academy. He is the founding president of the Media Academy. It was his opinion that the Media Academy should also shoulder educational responsibility. I feel happy to note that the Karnataka Media Academy is also participating on this occasion,” he said.
