A view of the panelists

As part of the activities to mark the World Press Freedom Day, US Embassy held its monthly Book Discussion based on the Nouveaux Horizons title ”Guide du journalisme audiovisuel” by Michelle Betz. The Information Officer, Elizabeth Ategou, delivered the welcome address. The program featured two professional journalists – IVLP alumni – as panelists who outstandingly conveyed a clear overview of the author’s message in a plain language to 80 attendees composed of media professionals, communications students, and the general public. They pointed out that the book is a must-read for journalists and communications professionals, providing helpful tips and regulations for a successful journalism career. This program was in support of Mission’s top priority–promoting democratization through an active and capable media.
