Unilag Sun blazes another trail

Associate Professor Adepoju Tejumaiye, HOD, Mass Communication

Unilag Mass Communication Head of Department, Associate Professor Adepoju Tejumaiye, has announced the birth of online edition of the Department's training newspaper for students,Unilag Sun.
The HOD stated that the production of the online edition was dictated by the prevailing incidence of Covid-19 which has made it compelling for media professionals to avoid physical contacts with news sources while sourcing the raw materials for their stories.

He further described  the evolution of the online edition as being  in line with the global best practices.

Associate Professor Tejumaiye said the production has been approved by the  Departmental Board of studies years back with a further directive to print lecturers in charge to properly monitor and supervise the production by the students. 

His words: "lmmediately the Department observed  the global misfortune which has adversely affected newspaper and magazine business across the world, attention was shifted to the online edition in line with what obtains across the world.

 "As a foremost Mass Communication training institution in Africa,the Department further  re- engineered the training and focus of the students to the various opportunities presented by the online edition in the training of the students".

The HOD further stated that the original plan this year was to release both the hard copies as well as the online editions simultaneously but with Covid-19,the Department rested the hard copies till when they can guarantee the safety and health of the students.

It could be recalled that over the years, students of the  Department have been producing the hard copies of both Unilag Sun and Mass Cope, that is,their newspaper and magazine.Media pundits therefore, described the production of the online edition as trail blazing.
