Changes at Nation Media Group

For once, the Nation has a story about the Nation Group that is a genuine story. Stories about the Nation or Standard Christmas party or new anchors don’t count as news stories and should not be the third item on the 7 p.m. news, even on a slow news day.

In 2004, the Nation media group was heavily poached of top executives and anchors who went to the Standard (newspaper and KTN) In 2005, Nation seems to be fighting back starting with appointment of Mr Ian Fernandes as managing director of Nation Broadcasting Division, taking overall charge of Nation TV and Nation FM – he was previously the managing director of KTN and worked with Standard group in various senior positions for 11 years. Other realignments have also been made
