1. Journalism trends: 

To podcast or not to podcast? If this is the question you’re asking yourself about creating platforms for your storytelling, consider this: 72% of leaders in 53 countries said they’d make 2023 the year of the podcast. “Amid the unpredictability of social media, most publishers see investing in podcasts and newsletters as the best way to build a deeper connection with audiences and to encourage them to come back more frequently,” according to the ‘Journalism, Media and Technology Trends and Predictions 2023 report. Meanwhile, according to this report by TRT Afrika, “African podcasting is poised to grow into a huge industry…(it’s) a game-changer for African media. It empowers individual African creatives to tell their stories and perspectives, challenging mainstream media narratives and stereotypes about Africa and Africans.”

4. In the spotlight: One of the biggest stories in South Africa this year laid bare the extent of corruption in the country’s prisons when it was revealed that convicted murderer and rapist Thabo Bester, who faked his death while at Mangaung Correctional Centre, had escaped. The stories, published by GroundUp, led to the arrest of Bester and His girlfriend, Dr Nandipha Magudumane, who helped him fake his death and escape from jail. The journalists behind the investigation, Daniel Steyn and Marecia Damons, were named the 2023 Nat Nakasa Award for Media Integrity.
