Liberian Journalist Julius Kullie Kanubah has challenged emerging media practitioners to build a ‘good image’ of themselves in pursuit of a better career.
Journalist Kanubah says life is molded around ‘social relationship’ as such, people should manage their interactions responsibly for the good of society.
The Liberian media expert was speaking Friday, 5 March 2021 when he officially launched the ‘First Set of 9 Media-related Textbooks’ produced by MediaAid Foundation through the Peter Quaqua School of Journalism-PQSJ in Congo Town.
A MediaAid Release quotes Journalist Kanubah as also urging the new generation of aspiring Journalists to take advantage of opportunities by seeking higher education because ‘media education is on the rise’.
The Textbook entitled: #ImageBuildingEdition1# is a 39 page researched Public Relations Guide authored by Liberian Media Entrepreneur Titus Tokpah.
Also speaking at the event, Federation of Liberian Youth-FLY President, Amos Williams cautioned media students not to see Journalism as a ‘fame’ building profession but a job built on passion.
The FLY President frowned at the new media which has created serious image problem for the local Journalism Community by giving air time to a lot of unprepared broadcasters.
Meanwhile, during the launch of the Textbook, Titus Tokpah, MediaAid Foundation boss autographed couple of copies for students & alumni of the Peter Quaqua School of Journalism-PQSJ including the President of the Liberia Writers Association-LAW, Samuel G. Dweh.
The remaining 8 Textbooks written by Trainers of the Peter Quaqua School of Journalism-PQSJ are to be released in the coming months at a joint launcheon ceremony.
