Training of trainers


Media Academy Iraq (MAI) will conduct a workshop for young journalists in the former ISIS-occupied region of Mosul in northern Iraq. The workshop will focus on radio production and will be led by hugely experienced US journalist Sam Kimball. Ten different local broadcasters, including Start FM, are expected to participate.


A spokesman for MAI said the participants would take a hands-on approach and produce stories during the workshop, under the supervision of several journalism experts.


The coach, Mr Kimball, stated the aim “of producing radio stories that give an opportunity to silenced voices in Mosul and to inform the international community.” Kimball said it was important to produce stories which “break stereotypes.”
