Dawn of A New Era in West African Media: New Telegraph Newspaper To Sign Weekly Supplement Partnership With International New York Times
INYT Insert Publication Commences October 6th, 2014
We look forward to the unique value that the team behind ‘The Gray Lady’ will bring to our organization and to our readerships via their international offering each week. - Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu
With great anticipation and aplomb, Nigeria’s latest and leading political and business daily newspaper, the New Telegraph (http://NewTelegraphOnline.com) has signed an unprecedented weekly media distribution partnership with the acclaimed International New York Times (http://international.nytimes.com).
The collaboration, launching October 6th and indeed a first of its kind for both the New Telegraph, chaired by renowned entrepreneur Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, and the New York Times organization, a 112-time Pulitzer Prize-winning ‘newspaper of record’, established in 1851, will bring to Nigerian readers at home and throughout the global Diaspora leading worldwide coverage and further accredited perspectives on contemporary issues of significance.
“Nigerians, much like those actors in the emerging world, live and engage within a 24-hour, seven days a week information cycle,” Dr. Kalu stated. “However and similar to many of said actors, we have so too fallen victim in years past to such insight being filtered by the agendas of few; those who would seek to shape the perception of national and global events. Conversely, the New Telegraph has subscribed to offering factual, bipartisan and unadulterated political and economic insight in order to keep our audiences informed and engaged, a mantra no doubt shared with our new partners at the International New York Times”.
“We look forward to the unique value that the team behind ‘The Gray Lady’ will bring to our organization and to our readerships via their international offering each week,” Dr. Kalu added.
The New Telegraph newspaper has in short order become one of the most widely read dailies in Nigeria. Published simultaneously from three locations – Lagos, Abuja and Aba – the broadsheet serves as arguably the nation’s most authoritative avenue in Business and Politics reporting.
This feat was no doubt made possible by an all-star team, including journalism industry high-fliers such as Gabriel Akinadewo, Felix Abugu, Suleiman Uba Gaya, Yemi Ajayi, Marshall Comins, Leo Cendrowicz, Laurence Ani, Emeka Madunagu, Biodun Durojaiye, Ayodele Ojo, Emeka Obasi, Ayodele Aminu, Juliet Bumah, Adekunle Salami, Waheed Bakare, Nzeshi Onwuka, Louis Achi, Dapo Sotuminu, Geoffry Ekenna, Kayode Olanrewaju, Lateef Ibrahim, Abiodun Bello, and Juliana Francis, among others.
The dedicated and effective team at the New Telegraph newspaper look forward to future endeavors and shared next steps with their colleagues at the International New York Times. Nigeria’s readers and true decision-makers will reap the benefits of a magazine determined to bring the very best and brightest each week and every day.
