With Covid-19 pandemic spreading all over the world governments were forced to take drastic measures to stop the spread. The lockdown enforced was like a natural experiment. It caused severe problems to most of the population which went under the lockdown. Only people who were allowed to report for regular work were medical and media professionals. Huge amount of literature has been churned up highlighting work done, and problem faced by medical professionals. The plight of media professionals was mostly ignored by people undertaking this kind of research. A survey conducted only among the media professionals revealed that 86% of respondents faced increased level of anxiety while 48% suffered negative impact of sleep pattern due to lockdown. The survey also threw some positive aspects of lockdown as many media professionals used their time to learn new things. Overall, the impact of lockdown on media professionals was not positive which is like other group of professionals anywhere in the world.
