Laolu Akande who will now be setting the stage for public discussions on TV screen, has had a stellar career in Journalism for the past three decades.

Akande’s career in Journalism started in 1989 when he joined the Guardian newspaper as a reporter. He worked with The News and Tempo newspapers as a senior writer, until he joined the Nigerian Tribune in 1995 as a Special Projects Editor and later became the Editor of the Tribune on Saturday title, furthering his career in the oldest newspaper in Nigeria, making him the youngest newspaper editor at the time.

From there, Akande later left the country for the United States, where he worked with Newsday as an Assistant Editor. He was also a Fellow of the Tribune Minority Editorial Training Program, METPRO. In 2004, he founded Empowered Newswire, a New York-based independent news agency reporting on Nigerian and African news from the US and North America.
