The Kenya Journalism Review, a quarterly publication, was unveiled on Thursday by the Kenya Editors Guild (KEG) borne out of the need to offer an opportunity for industry practitioners and stakeholders to interrogate and analyse issues.
Introducing the issue in a first page editorial, Tim Wanyonyi, the editor writes, ‘Birth of a new era in Kenyan journalism’, “We hope that the Kenyan Journalism Review will not only enhance the factors informing the performance of the media, but also the environment in which they operate and their relationships with other actors.”
Launching the publication at the sidelines of the 2019 Annual Media Summit in Nairobi, Mr. Churchill Otieno, President of KEG said, “There is no better time to do journalism than today.”
The first issue is titled, ‘A helping hand to struggling media’.
The publication will seek to look at the place, roles and obligations of the media touching on the performance of the media and journalism; offer opportunities for serious introspection on the performance of the industry; publish high-quality articles on the industry and offer reference material of the media and journalism in Kenya.
This year’s media summit is themed, ‘Media, Accountability and Good Governance.’
KEG’s mission is to promote media freed0m, credibility, and professionalism.
