Media Viability Ambassadors: Sharing knowledge on how media can survive in challenging times
Obioma Okonkwo, Nigeria
"As a Media Viability Ambassador, journalists' safety is of great concern for me. They – and media outlets worldwide – face repressive laws, arrests, detentions, fines, assaults or death. With media viability, I aim to ensure that media operate in an enabling environment so they can produce high quality journalism," says Okonkwo, who heads the Legal Department at the Media Rights Agenda in Lagos.
