This Internship which will bear his name will encourage young British budding talented broadcasters to follow in his footsteps and acknowledge as he did that the media is a force for good. Through  his short and vibrant life he would have created a great legacy for the future. In this profound way Rishi’s talent will still be remembered and recognised”
