STAR Radio wins the PUL  Award for The Best Radio Station of the Year !

For the second year running, STAR radio has won on July 2010, the PUL (Press Union of Liberia) Award For the Best Radio Station of the Year for its high standard and the professionalism of its news reporting and the relevance of its feature programs.

 Not only STAR was chosen as the Best Radio of the Year, but STAR Radio’s reporters Bruce Boweh  and Julius Kanubah also retained their awards as Judicial and Legislative Reporters of the year.

 Also, Robert Clarke STAR Radio’s Executive Mansion Correspondent was for the first time named newscaster of the year.

The journalist of the year went to STAR Radio’s former News Editor and now BBC World Service Trust’s reporter at the Charles Taylor Trial in The Hague Joseph Cheeseman.

 On Wednesday October 13, the Liberia Media Center with support from TrustAfrica launched the first in a  series of assessments on the state and health of the media sector in Liberia, in the frame of the Media Quality Barometer.

 The project targeted five radio stations and nine newspapers including STAR Radio.

 STAR radio was ranked 2nd in the general ranking, topping the context ranking due to its high performance on conference and investigation. STAR also obtained the maximum points for County Coverage due to its correspondents strength across Liberia.

 Overall scoring and ratings were based on six performance indicators including Diversity, Newsworthiness, Completeness/Overall Quality, Context, Grammar and Structure, and General Layout or Presentation.
