RAL Official Calls For Descent Wage For Journalists
By Stephen N. Sonpon

MONROVIA, November 8 (LINA) –The outgoing president of the Reporters Association of Liberia (RAL), Tete F. Gebro, has called on media institutions to augment salaries of media workers to encourage effective performance.

Gebro wants media owners and managers to put into place a decent wage scheme for journalists so that the media landscape can become more vibrant and beneficial for all.

She emphasized that media managers and executives should understand that taking proper care of their reporters is a win-win situation that will yield significant dividends for all parties.

Gebro made the call over the weekend at the close of a two-day retreat of the RAL held in Kakata, Margibi County.

According to her, this will not only satisfy the desire of reporters to obtain their just earnings for job done, but will also prevent journalists from compromising their ethics.

Meanwhile, as part of its retreat over the weekend, RAL elected a new leadership to govern the affairs of the organization for the next two years.

Those elected were Henry Sumo, President; Necus Andrews, Vice President and Willie Tokpah, Secretary General.

RAL is one of the biggest auxiliaries of the Press Union of Liberia.

It was established to seek the welfare of news reporters in Liberia.
