Knight Fellow Advances Media Sustainability in Liberia

Jul 182012

Liberia is taking steps towards greater press freedom through media sustainability, according to Knight International Journalism Fellow Luisa Handem Piette. Recent improvements in legislation encourage free reporting, but bolstering media sustainability remains pivotal. Piette, with support from UNESCO and ICFJ, brings together media owners and journalists in monthly exchanges to formulate plans for increased private investment in Liberian media, with promising results.

UNESCO, ICFJ’s partner in Liberia, reports on the continuing improvement.
