Letter from America: Sports Journos it’s Election Year again

New York-based sports journalist and former SJAG Secretary General Abdoulie Bah gives us his opinion on the current state of sports journalism as the Sports Journalists Association approach elections.

I will begin by remembering two members of the media fraternity who have left for the next world. Lamin A. Darboe and Fatou B.K Mbye made significant contributions to the progress of sports media in The Gambia. Darboe, a teacher by profession, was among a group of devoted and talented minds in the SJAG. Fatou Mbye made a mark on the careers of many of her colleagues. She took her place, and rightly so, as a warrior and champion of grassroots sports and media development in The Gambia. It is not a stretch to assume that these trailblazers deserve permanent recognition. May their souls continue to rest in peace.
