So proud of how well our team at Primedia Broadcasting did at this year’s Bookmarks Awards, South Africa’s digital industry’s very own Oscars. 

Our awards included a Silver for Publisher sites (mass appeal) – EYEWITNESS NEWS, a Bronze for Editorial (media – news, magazines, radio, and TV stations/networks) – 947. And the biggie fort the night an Honors Award for Best Publisher – EYEWITNESS NEWS!

Beating out the biggest news websites in the country for this accolade was such a thrill for the small but amazingly talented and committed EWN team. As the digital content (mama) manager that watches over just how hard they work to push the envelope every day, I couldn’t be any prouder!

We Won!

On a side note: since I suggested we enter this award I’m especially chuffed with my contribution to this happening 🙂

I’m famous! (not really)

I'm famous! (not really)

In recognition of Nelson Mandela’s upcoming 94th birthday, GlobalGrind put together a video series documenting how ‘Born Frees’ experience freedom in New York. I was one of the ‘Born Frees’ interviewed. Sharing my love for my country and gratitude for the legacy he has left, was an honour!
