First year journalism students at the Malawi Polytechnic’s Continuing Education Centre last week went on an educational visit to MBC radios to have an up-close experience of the operations at the radio station.
The tour was in line with the students’ core values, which is to entertain, educate and inform.
Speaking on behalf of the students, Joseph Kalera described the tour as a golden opportunity for the students because they will now be able to relate during their studies.
“MBC has done a great thing inviting us over to their studios because we now know exactly how things are run in the radio station,” said Kalera.
Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) public relations officer Ruth Gama told The Nation that they would like to help journalism grow in the country.
“These same students come back to us to work and as a mother broadcaster, it is our duty to help them get motivated and get quality education so that they can be very productive after school” said Gama.
