16 graduate from Nation Media Lab
The eighth cohort of the Nation Media Lab graduated on Thursday after a 19-week training course. The sixteen journalists were awarded certificates after the vigorous course comprising in-depth and practical training in print, broadcast and digital Journalism.
The journalists were encouraged to test their limits in the changing landscape of the media industry.
Nation Media Group (NMG) Chief Executive Officer Stephen Gitagama said the company has placed itself as a pacesetter in the industry by investing in quality journalism.
“Journalism is a calling and we play a big role in the development of our society. We are in a privileged position with the brand we have developed. We are ready for the new transition and are confident that NMG is moving in the right direction,” Mr Gitagama told the graduates.
