Souleymane Niang

West Africa Democracy Radio (Station Manager)

Experience

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). International Leadership Program (US State Department) Alumnus


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."
