2020 is an unprecedented year. As COVID-19 continues to spread rapidly around the world, each of us is presented with immense challenges and significant impacts on the way we live and work.
Never has telling stories to audiences across the world been more important, ensuring that the public has the facts that matter to them, ensuring that citizens are constantly informed. Reporting the news accurately, fairly and without sensationalism, combined with considered analysis and insight, is vital in these extraordinary times.
We are conscious that journalists and programme makers are under immense strain as they rise to the challenge of keeping citizens at home and abroad informed, often working with reduced resources from locations without the usual facilities and support. The AIB pays tribute to you all.
