Ia Ora Na and welcome to this new episode of our Pacific Toks, where I engage in active conversations with my guests to talk about the challenges our world is facing and seeing them through a Pacific lens.
For this new episode, we’re looking closely at the situation of journalism in our region: what are the challenges, the specificities and the hopes going forward for a well-informed Pacific region.
To share insights to you on this topic, I’m talking today with Alexander Rheeney. Alexander is a journalist from PNG now working as an editor for the Samoan Observer in Apia. Before that Alexander have been strongly involved in reflections on journalism by working at the Pacific Freedom Forum, the Media Council of PNG, the Lowy Institue and many news organizations in the region.
