Liberia: independence and sustainability of Media

Liberia has been on the radar screen with the national elections (presidential and legislative) in October 2011 and the Nobel Prize offered to Ellen Sirleaf, but the attention did not help Liberian media gain the visibility they need to defend their independence and pave the way for their sustainability.

Closed for more than a year now due to lack of funding, Star Radio could not cover the elections, and its staff saw other radio stations being closed by the government, some media openly supporting X or Z candidate, and the Liberian citizens lacking independent information.

Star Radio is still struggling today to find a new governance model with a revamped Executive that will lead the station and create the conditions for it to reopen.

Your support can help!

    Bill Orme A year ago, I requested some information from Star Radio about its lamentable and its (to me as a donor) previously undisclosed closure. I repeat that unmet request, with hopes for further information about the plans for its reopening alluded to above - not a lot for a contributor to ask.
