MEDIA SUPPORT INITIATIVE
MHNG NETWORK PARTNERS PAN-ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY, SCHOOL OF MEDIA AND
COMMUNICATIONS TO TRAIN 25 JOURNALISTS ON THE
ART OF INTERVIEWING

The art of interviewing is one of the most important skills that a
journalist needs to expand on information, clarify facts and see things
from different perspectives. This was made clear at a one-day workshop on
“The Art of Interviewing,” which took place on Tuesday 23, May, 2017, at
the Pan-Atlantic University. The workshop was organized by MHNG Network in
partnership with the School of Media and Communications (SMC) of the
Pan-Atlantic University.

The convener of the media initiative and the CEO of Urban 10 Hub Limited,
Miss Rosemary Egabor, stated that the training was important because
interviews are used to expand upon the basic “who, what, where, how, when
and why” of newsgathering in whatever beat a journalist may cover, and it
is the information gathered and dispersed that the public relies and acts
on. According to her, the workshop was a response to the need of the
Nigerian media for capacity building to make it respond to global best
practices and serve the needs of an emerging economy like Nigeria.
On his part, the dean of the School of Media and Communication, Dr.
Ikechukwu Obiaya, applauded the initiative. He indicated that it aligned
very much with the school’s mission of  providing training for media
professionals to enable them pursue their calling of service to human
cultures with a sense of creativity, skill, knowledge and values.

Twenty-five Journalists drawn from different media houses were nominated
to attend the workshop, which was fully sponsored by the MHNG Network. The
workshop was facilitated by Dr. Obiaya and Dr. Joseph Bel-Molokwu.
The MHNG Network was founded by Urban 10 Hub Limited, one of Nigeria’s
growing PR companies, in 2016. The primary goal of the MHNG is to promote
professionalism in the media through journalism network programmes that
bring together professionals from across all media platforms to network,
debate and engage with national and global issues that are of importance
to the Nigerian media industry. MHNG network also uses its social media
platforms/online community to promote media related activities and
campaigns. Finally, through its partnerships, the network seeks to build
capacity and promote best practices in the media. The network believes
that a strong media will ultimately result in a strong PR because PR is
all about story telling.
