Souleymane Niang

West Africa Democracy Radio (Station Manager)


20 years of experience in radio (reporter, senior producer, station manager with 4 radio stations: Nostalgie FM Dakar, Walf Fadjri FM, Océan FM, Radio Municipale de Dakar, WADR). I also served as a consultant in various media projects or initiatives. Past executive director of the media self regulatory body (CORED).

Conflict of Interest Statement

"Currently, the radio I am managing (WADR) is broadcasting a bi-monthly fact-checking program (9 programs produced and broadcast as of today), in partnership with an AFP-funded organization: Africa Check. The program, ""Arrêt sur Info"" covers facts concerning West African countries. I participated in the conception of the program, but I have little say on the daily production operations."
