The Eye of Media.com was first conceived in 2012, with the aim of providing a platform for a meaningful voice in society, on a variety of issues and news , in the UK and across the globe. Our aim is not to replicate or rival mainstream journalism, but to provide a supplement of sorts to the mainstream news media. We will sometimes cover mainstream topics of high public interest, giving a personalized , though objective outlook on it. The vision is still in the process of metamorphosing.
This idea was in the pipeline for some years, during which, as in many projects, the waffling and juggling took their course before it found its level. The concept of recruiting a select group of writers was birthed in my heart a long while before I threw the net to assemble my team. The team has varied since the inception of the eye of media.com. Some joined permanently, and others, intermittently.
“The Eye of Destiny“, our new 24 hour On-Line Radio Station is an off-shoot of The Eye of Media. com. The name connotes the fresh opportunity I have and will continue to afford individuals a platform to showcase their strengths in the area of various music genres and presentation in some of our talk shows. We plan talk shows or debates two or three times a week at the moment, given our financial limitations.
My Writing Career
My passion for writing received its first opportunity for public expression in 2002 through Boxing News publications I had been a boxing fan for many years attending boxing matches wherever they promised excitement. I had an interest in writing and public engagement for a number of years but was looking for the best platform to fully express it. I had an opinion on everything right from my teenage years, often engaged in many interesting debates at various points with friends and class mates.
As an avid boxing fan, I became very interested in following the stories of accomplished champions and regularly read Boxing News and regularly contributed to their letter section. I felt honoured to always be credited with ‘star letters’- almost each and every time I contributed to the magazine. I guess the boxing news editorial must have found my contribution good. I was equally appreciative of the quality of their work
My gratitude goes to the boxing news Editorial team at the time, particularly, Claude Abrams, the Editor at the time, for their encouragement and professionalism. My warm thoughts also go to the rest of the editorial team, the assistant at the time Daniel Herberts and Tony Connolly, with whom I struck a good relationship and whose contribution to boxing news I enjoyed.
I later went on to write for the Voice newspaper, thanks to Rodney Hinds, the news editor who gave me the opportunity
I moved on to writing stories for Sunday Mirror for a number of years, until 2013. I owe that opportunity to James Saville, the former news editor of the Sunday Mirror, who left in 2014 after also being news editor for the Sunday people. I have since then liaised with assistant editor Nick Owens in the Sunday Mirror .
The first challenge in setting up was to secure the team’s regular attendance at the meetings that were to formulate the thrust of the vision. There were a few false starts until December 2014, when we eventually took off.
Another of the many challenges relates to the demanding financial layout for a project that would continuously demand investment without immediate revenue. This has been an enormous adventure worth the grill.
We are a team of seven enthusiastic men and women with a common passion for writing, and a large pull of other professional competencies. There are also a few others not on our team who contribute from time to time, and we are also open to more writers who are competent and want to have their voice heard on matters of public interest. Our approach to language is inclusive, not bombastic. We endeavour to pitch our language at a level readable to intelligent youngsters, but not too simplistic to high-brow intellectuals.
Some of our writers write on more than one topic as don’t have specific writers for only specific topics.
We aim for high standards. Quality Control is our by-word as we continue to develop in this aspect, as in others. We work together very well as a professional team. We do not aim to replicate all news topics in the mainstream media, only selective topics we choose wite about from our perspective. We generally we seek our own topics or news, but also some news already in the public domain, or about to enter the public domain.
We prioritise truth as we see it, and objective reporting expressed through persuasive analyses of facts available to us. It is our policy to be non-discriminatory. However, we would exercise our right to professionally support and express our views on any given matter, or withhold the expression of views that serve no worthy purpose. The eye of media.com adheres to the ethical codes of conducts prescribed in NuJ guidelines and aim to reflect professional standards in our operations at all times. We are always open to comments and constructive criticism.
As we aim to contribute to the improvement of society for the well-being of individuals or groups, including their safety, and general positive outcomes, we would endeavour to gain insight and seek to look at perspectives which others may overlook.
As a member of the NUJ, our sources of news and information are widely varied. We liaise with individuals from various sections of the media, including free lancers. We also obtain information through our respective contacts in various parts of the UK, and some from other parts of the world. as well as sources coming from our readership. We will do our best to satisfy your appetite for quality information and thorough evaluation where necessary.

The eye of media was first set up in 2012 with a vision to give people a platform to have a meaningful voice in society on a variety of issues. The vision birthed in my heart was to get a number of individuals to report and appraise various issues and events in the UK, and also across the globe. I gathered a group of about five people to start with, but consistency on their part was a problem. It was briefly revived in 2013 then finally became stable in December 2014.My passion for writing started with the Boxing News publication under the administration of Claude Abrams in 2002, and was honored to always be credited with ‘star letters’ each and every time I contributed to the magazine. I quickly developed a good relationship with his brilliant editorial team and thanks to them, went on to write for The Voice newspaper thanks to Rodney Hinds, then The Sunday Mirror up until 2013 I am particularly grateful to their then editor,James Saville for the opportunity, and then Nick Owens, thereafter.
Daring to be different, our aim is to provide our readers with information on a broad range of topics that will supplement that which you get from the mainstream media. This vision has been in the pipeline for a while, however with a concerted effort, we have finally managed to get it off the ground. We have been told that the mainstream media is generally restricted to news about celebrities or bad news, as a consequence it inadvertently or otherwise leaves out other important aspects of human engagements which we will seek to explore. This is not saying that we seek to provide a rivalry for mainstream media, because we don’t. The mainstream media play and important and necessary role in society but will naturally be more institutional in the sort of topics they choose as news.
We aim to serve as a positive extension of the broad media’s overarching purpose of disseminating information, highlighting all important and interesting occurrences that come to our attention, whether they involve individuals, organizations/establishments or celebrities. We will indeed often liaise with the mainstream media since I myself have had just over 10 years experience writing for the media.
It goes without saying that not all news or information we provide will be uplifting or inspiring. Some will inevitably be sad and disheartening. Nevertheless, the objective of soothing your appetite for worthwhile information and thoroughly unbiased evaluation will be fervently pursued. We will leave no stones unturned when it comes to satisfying your thirst for objective and insightful analysis of the news we give you.
As champions of objective and complete news, we will always seek to present a complete version of any given news where we feel any particular publication has erred or manifestly fallen short of fair standards of reporting. No organization or publication is perfect and we are no exception. However, our writers are well trained and united in the desire to be as through as possible in giving you the very best you deserve in terms of quality information and our integrity and honorable suppliers of information. Your views and comments will always be welcome, though reckless and inflammatory views will not be published. Our team of dedicated writers who are sold to our vision. Some are experienced writers with experience in the media industry, whilst others are recent graduates or lay people in other fields who happen to have the desire and aptitude to take this vision of ours further. Each of them is well suited and grounded in the areas they will write about, and some will indeed cover more than one category of news.
At this infant stage, our aim is to not necessarily to have written material on line everyday, but only when we particularly feel pressed to give you news from our own added perspectives. In this regard, we will have material for you at least every week, though on average we will likely feel the need to furnish with you with information up to four times a week. We look forward to you enjoying this exciting journey with us, and I promise we will do our best to keep the buzz flowing.
