While visiting media organs in the Littoral Region, National Communication Council president, Joe Chebongkeng Kalabubse, has appreciated the professionalism of some media men. He assured them that their efforts in upholding the values of the profession will be rewarded.
Joe Chebongkeng held working sessions with CRTV, SOPECAM and private media organs which enabled him to understand the working conditions of journalists in the Littoral region and encourage them to abide by the norms that govern the profession.
“We came with a message of challenge. We want to challenge journalists to be professional in what they do. A message of encouragement to those who are doing it and doing it well and a message of caution to those who are venturing into the profession, because we want to clean the profession of quacks” the NCC president said.
“We are thinking of a situation where we could give awards to those who perform well, so if we are sanctioning we could also award prizes to those who do their work well and we think that majority of the journalists and press organs we are meeting, are those who work well” he added.
The recently appointed NCC president, began meeting with pressmen of media organs in Yaounde on 22 July, 2021. This comes after he took leadership of the regulatory institution on the 4th of June.
