Media General’s Portia Solomon Gabor has been pronounced the 2021 Journalist of the Year.

She got the honor at the 26th Ghana Journalist Association (GJA) Awards Night held at the Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel in Accra, Ghana.

Portia Gabor’s feature named ‘Beggars Paradise’ – which broadcasted on TV3 within the year under review – was pronounced the Best News Production for television.

She was also declared the Health Journalist of the Year with her element named ‘Health for Wealth’.

Receiving her award, Gabor also honored the pacesetters of Journalism in Ghana, particularly the female practitioners.

“You didn’t only set the pace for us but you broke the glass ceiling,” she stressed.

Then again, TV3’s Juliet Bawuah’s story on rugby at the beach side also won the Best in Sports.

Joseph Armstrong Gold-Alorgbey’s coverage on how a contractor failed to hand over a completed school block in the Volta Region was adjudged the Best in the education category.

Armstrong had followed up to ensure that the completed classroom block was handed over for use by the community.

Promoting A Combined Interest Can Help Pay Journalists Better

The three got plaques for their accomplishment and a citation read for them. They were also beautified with sashes.

Godwin Asediba, who joined Media General from EIB Network recently, was decreed the Best in Sanitation. That story was aired on GHOne TV.

The 26th GJA Awards Night was chaired by former Vice Chancellor of the University of Ghana Professor Ernest Aryeetey.

The 26th GJA Awards was on the theme: ‘Walking the Path Towards Ghana’s Economic Recovery: The Role of the Media’.

A number of dignitaries including the US Ambassador to Ghana, Virginia E. Palmer and Justice of the Supreme Court (JSC) Yonny Kulendi were present at the event.
