A former Editor of Vanguard Newspaper, Mr. Mideno Bayagbon, has floated an online news platform, thenewsguru.
A statement on Monday by the company stated that Bayagbon’s new outfit “hopes to stem the seeming lack of professionalism among some practitioners in the digital media space.”
According to the statement, the online medium, which came on stream in the first week of September, has a former Editor of The Guardian, Jewell Dafinone, as its group managing editor.
It added that the website had recorded tremendous followership in its few weeks of operation.
Bayagbon, who was the Editor of Vanguard Newspaper for eight years, resigned from the company last Tuesday.
The management of Vanguard Media Limited, publisher of Vanguard Newspaper, had last Wednesday announced the appointment of Mr. Eze Anaba as Bayagbon’s replacement.
