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, 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 personalised , 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.
