According to a recent hashtag trending on Twitter related to Talking Turkey with Kanthi, the weekly sports debate show of Power Sportz, the founder and editor-in-chief, Ms. Kanthi D Suresh, is due for a highly prestigious Presidential award in Dubai. The felicitation ceremony is scheduled in the mid of September, people participating in the discussion said.

Power Sportz has the distinction of being the world’s first web TV channel dedicated to sports and it has become highly successful within its first year of existence. The average monthly users have crossed 10 million. 

A swathe of awards descending on Power Sportz, Kanthi D Suresh

For being a successful entrepreneur in conceptualizing and running a sports channel in an entirely male-dominated field, Kanthi D Suresh has received widespread recognition from all quarters. A few days back, a Cabinet Minister from Haryana conferred her with an award at a ceremony, for her leadership skills and running a team that is behind Power Sportz’s success. 

Recently, the IIT Kanpur had also invited Kanthi to speak on entrepreneurship in their annual event. It was a huge honor because it was a platform graced by many great Indian personalities in the past. 

The achievements of Power Sportz are commendable. The unique World Cup program in collaboration with legendary international cricketers and former India players was a critical success. It was highly appreciated by fans and experts alike. 

Teams up with Uber-Careem

Power Sportz, recently, signed a content-sharing agreement with Uber-Careem, the largest ride-sharing company in the UAE.

In the coming months, the burgeoning clients of the company will get to enjoy the interesting sports content of Power Sportz as their in-ride entertainment package. This means Power Sportz’s content will enter into the vast UAE market including 15 MENA countries.  

Hence, it is only natural to get appreciated for such stupendous success in a maiden venture. Power Sportz, so far has managed to draw the attention of its viewers bringing them to their feet. Kanthi D Suresh’s decade-long journalistic experience has come to the fore in leading a team and delivering superlative sports content. It is no surprise to receive awards and recognition for such exceptional work in the field of sports. 

So, is the award for Power Sportz from the President or the PM? It will be only after a few days the whole news would become clear once the event gets covered in the media.
