Is there a pure form of South African journalism? - Janine Lazarus Media Consultancy
Is there a pure form of South African journalism?

Is there such a thing as pure South African journalism, or is specific country reportage a myth? And more to the point, is it really necessary to train our journalists to practice South African journalism? The news of the day is often portrayed through the eyes of Western ideals and values, but is that necessarily a bad thing?

The value of sport goes beyond the pitch - Olé! Media Group
The value of sport goes beyond the pitch

For many young aspiring sportsmen and sportswomen, it is a lifelong dream to be at the centre of the action; as a member of the national rugby, soccer or cricket team. But not everyone can achieve this and often the dream dies. However, off the field, sport is a major source of content production for the media industry and sports media is a booming, highly successful area in South African publishing and broadcasting. It is therefore a prime space for young sports enthusiasts to channel their passion and earn a decent income to boot.
