PS: Part of my new year resolution this year was to visit at least four countries in Africa that I have never been to. Fortunately it's happening sooner and it's free too. Lol. I am off to Congo Brazzaville with MBGN 2007 for the Ms Congo Pageant. I have no clue what to expect and it is not funny that I cannot find my french dictionary. Anyways I'll let you know how it goes

It seems that the 'enlightened' media in Nigeria is now focused on entertainment. I'm not knocking the approach because I'm sure it's more profitable than reporting hard news. I will admit that I don't know what Silverbird TV stands for in terms of information(news, entertainment, sports?). But your 'about me' section mentions that you're an aspiring news reporter/CNN Int'l correspondent. Do you think your current Silverbird assignments are leading you to those goals?
Some of the Silverbird reporting you've highlighted seems to focus on the entertainment piece, Miss World, MBGN etc
The same goes for Thisday, who seems to be hosting an award show or a concert every six months.
The enlightened and most profitable media seems to be more focused now on entertainment than vital information gathering and dissemination.
I'm thinking about relocating too and have received multiple offers but if I do relocate, how does one remain focused and not easily get caught up on all the unneccessary hype?
Looking back, has your experience been well worth it?

I'm back already from my very short trip. My bad french came in handy though

@John Bull -- I would be lying if I said I don't battle with that same question everyday. Well all I can say is time will tell. It is what it is though. Silverbird is an entertainment channel and I am being paid to do a job, regardless of what it is (fluff or hard news) I am managing to balance both the best way I can. If you've read some of my other post you'll see some of that.

Are my assignments getting me closer to my goals....on surface it seems like I'm heading in a totally opposite direction and the fear of being taken seriously looms heavily everytime I get one of 'those assignments/interviews' but life has a funny way of presenting you with it's package. The opportunity to travel the world (or have fun on the job) but only for entertainment events (like pageants...did i hear a yuck) It's a catch 22 and i guess i am paying for turning my nose up on fluff stuff.

Has my experience been worth while....I WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR THE WORLD...well except for another job that gets me closer to my goals. Silverbird is a platform and a stepping stone, a bridge across an ocean, it's the NOW that puts me in and prepares me for a better place and I am grateful for every opportunity working with Silverbird has presented and will present to me.
