Community Journalism in Nigeria: Global Technological Reflections

Asan Andrew Ate, Joseph Omoh Ikerodah


Community Media is community owned, peoples’ oriented and less profit driven. It has the capacity to facilitate and smoothen effective communication in places where the presence of Mass Media is not well felt thus fostering development in other media marginalized communities. Through community Media, crimes at grassroot level can be prevented while civil education, cross-gender dialogue, cultural literacy among other things can be harnessed for developmental purposes. This paper holistically takes a look at community media and new media technologies with particular emphasis on Nigeria. The discourse which specifically pays particular attention on community radio seeks its marriage with new media technologies with a view to bringing development to information ex-communicated communities. The paper recommends a highly hybrised and integrated media approach among other things.
