A new Executive Board of Directors for MMW-SL has been formed to provide strategic advice and support to our excellent journalistic team in Sierra Leone. The Board Chair is Fatmata Dainkeh Katta who, like many of the other new board members, began her radio career at Cotton Tree News (CTN), the largest public service media project in post-war Sierra Leone, where she worked as a journalist, presenter, and producer.
Other board members include Millicent Kargbo, Florence Katta Sesay, Mariama Khai Fornah, and Yeama Thompson. Most have worked together in various media outlets in Sierra Leone and currently hold challenging positions at BBC Action Media, Open Data Network, IRIN Community Radio network, the Office of the First Lady, and the U.S. Embassy Office of Public Affairs.
The new MMW-SL Board will soon be joined by Sybil Bailor, a member of the MMW International Board of Directors who has recently moved back to Sierra Leone from Europe.
A warm welcome to all new MMW-SL Board members!
