#MOJO

Your MOJOis here

JournalismWeb is the original independent South African Journalism Portal, the home of Mobile Journalism (MoJo) in Africa - mobile, smart device and app-driven. For over two decades, we were known as MediaWeb, a 23-year-old journalism hub in South Africa started by three SA journalists. The re-launch in 2023 was driven by the explosive emerging technology that is changing our lives. The 4IR Newsroom is on-the-go, mobile, smart device and app-driven. It is multi-channel, multi-format, and moves at speed. How do we make the technology work for us, and not against us? Enjoy a dive into the new face of journalism.

Saving your sources

Good sources are the foundation of a good story. That’s why it’s vital that journalists keep comprehensive lists of both their used contacts and potential sources. Hard copy source lists are often seen as the reporter’s bible, while social media platforms and online lists have become indispensable resources too.

Event Reporting?

MediaWeb uses journalists to add value to South African brands, and their marketing departments. All too often, organisations invest time and money into their events, without generating valuable content around the insights and thought leadership derived from that event. MediaWeb offers the service of sending a journalist to the event to write a story of the event, take photographs, perform audio or video interviews with speakers, clients or sponsors, which can then be used after the event in the form of a press release to media to generate publicity, or as content for e-mail newsletters, or social media platforms.
