News Editor
Mr. Marcel Mbamalu is the News Editor of The Guardian, the Flagshipnof the Nigerian print media. He is Bloomberg-certified Data and Financial journalist. He holds a Master of Science Degree in Mass Communication and Journalism from the University of Lagos and a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN). He also holds a certificate in Business and Economic Reporting from the School of Media and Communications (SMC) at the Pan-Atlantic University (PAU) and is currently conducting a wide range of research on issues of modern journalism in Nigeria. Mr Mbamalu is a widely traveled journalist and has covered many international conferences/events. As a researcher in modern journalism practice and content driver for The Guardian, Mr Mbamalu has shown commitment to Development Journalism and market-driven content generation. He has delivered papers in major Journalism Workshops organized by several local and international agencies, including the World Health Organisation (WHO). Mr. Mbamalu’s 13 years of working with The Guardian has seen him demonstrate passion and commitment to journalism ethics. He has been mentoring younger colleagues on appropriate response to “New Media disruptions” in journalism practice through constant skill acquisition and development. He believes that to keep the “old wine” in an attractive “new bottle” for today’s readers, journalists must align with New Media trends by updating their tech skills (as new readerships evolve) but keep to the old-time standards of truth, balance, fairness, and “impact” through investigative reports.
