some good news today: asoka basnayake who produces the "women's voices" programme has won an award at the Annual Micies awards by Planet FM for an election special programme she produced. they station appreciated her initiative of interviewing ethnic candidates from most parties and her show was apprently one of a kind during this election campaign. this is asoka's third award since she started broadcasting
it's great that the programme is now available on line via livestreaming, and there are some archived programmes on the site as well (click on the "support services" tab). it's always great to see ethnic women doing well, and knowing the work asoka puts into this programme, i know the award is very well deserved.
