young print journalist of the year

Winner - Brian James

Brian James is one of the commended print journalists we have in Sierra Leone. He was born on the 7th May, and is married with kids. He looks for exceptional contents in his interviews, goes extra mile to get his sources, cover as many layers of an issue, and gets his facts straight. He prides himself on getting as many perspectives to a story as possible, whilst most journalists are content to interview and quote a singular source.

He talks to various authorities on a topic, establishing patterns of occurrence or behavior through numerical data and other statistics, and tries to add an element of style in his writing as well, so that his articles are more than just information dumps. He is currently the editor of one of the most famous Magazines in the country, ‘Sierraeye Magazine’.
