Legacy Beyond Headlines, important for Journalists – NUJ President
By Chris Isiguzo,
In the ever-evolving landscape of journalism, where the winds of change blow with both challenges and opportunities, I extend a call to my fellow journalists to embrace the spirit of innovation. As we navigate this dynamic era, let us not only be storytellers but also pioneers in redefining the boundaries of our craft.
Beyond the traditional realms of reporting, there lies a vast and uncharted territory of opportunities for revenue generation. It’s time to explore and develop business ideas that leverage our unique skills and insights. Our journalistic expertise is not confined to headlines; it can be a foundation for entrepreneurial ventures that echo our passion for truth and storytelling.
Consider adding a second address, not just as journalists but as enterprising individuals carving a niche in the ever-expanding world of business. Let our skills be a catalyst for growth, not only in the newsroom but also in boardrooms where innovative ideas take root.
In this transformative journey, let’s embrace the mindset that being a journalist is not just a profession but an ethos. Seek out new horizons, discover the untapped potentials within your craft, and let your storytelling prowess be a guiding light in unexplored territories.
As we embark on this path of innovation, let resilience, creativity, and a relentless pursuit of new possibilities be our guiding principles. Our words have the power to inform, inspire, and now, to innovate.
May the future of journalism be marked by a symphony of voices, each contributing to the rich narrative of progress and reinvention. Embrace the future with open arms, and together, let’s create a legacy that goes beyond headlines.
Chris Isiguzo is the National President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists.
