Journalism placements in Ghana

You will rarely find press in Africa that asserts it’s independence as vociferously as the media in Ghana. Ghana has a population of about 20 million people and yet boasts numerous radio shows, TV stations and newspapers.

Our journalism placements are based in and around Accra, Cape Coast and Takoradi, our bases in Ghana, where there is a huge variety of newspapers from the sober Daily Graphic, reporting the nation’s daily news, to the trashy Top Story, Ghana’s version of The National Enquirer or Daily Sport.

In Accra there are opportunities to work in a variety of printed newspaper and magazine placements, together with some radio and TV opportunities.

Our placements in Cape Coast and Takoradi are for those interested in Radio work experience opportunities.

Most of the radio stations are independent and are renowned for their energetic phone ins during which no subject is taboo, from the current political issues of the day, through religion to the performance of the local and national football teams (another religion in Ghana).

If you are interested in printed media, you will spend your time with us working alongside Ghana’s writers learning about how to write a feature, the secrets of interviewing and much more. You will spend time on assignment with your Ghanaian partner co-researching and co-writing features or news reports, submitting them before the crucial deadline. Your partner will work with you to ensure that you have an understanding of the tools you will need - page layout software etc, as well as give you an understanding of the rules and regulations journalists in Ghana must stick to.

If you are interested in broadcast media, such as radio or TV work, we also have opportunities for you to gain experience as a broadcast journalist, broadcast assistant, sound engineer or camera operator. Very limited opportunities also exist in presenting either behind a microphone or in front of a camera!

In short, these projects are not about just making the coffee! If you are good enough, you could find yourself published or on air, imagine having that kind of experience in your portfolio rather than some time spent on your local rag!
