Segala puji dan syukur hanya buat Tuhan Semesta Alam, semalam (24 Mac) laman Wartawan Awam (WA) terima dua berita gembira.
Untuk post hari ini, saya kongsikan berita gembira yang pertama dahulu.

Telum Media , sebuah syarikat PR yang berdaftar di Singapura dan Hong Kong telah mewar-warkan tentang kewujudan laman wartawanawam.com melalui newsletter ‘Malaysia Media Alert’ bertarikh 24 Mac 2015.
Mereka mengumpul dan menyebar perkembangan terkini berkaitan pengamal media tempatan meliputi hal perlantikan baharu, kenaikan pangkat, perpindahan dan sebagainya melalui newsletter ini dengan kekerapan sekali seminggu.
Minggu lepas, saya dihubungi Pengurus mereka, Elyse Chong menyatakan niat mereka menyiarkan khabar tentang wartawanawam.com dalam newsletter bertarikh semalam. Saya setuju.
Untuk itu, Telum Media karangkan dua perenggan maklumat yang ringkas dan padat mengenai usaha kecil ini untuk mengajak kepada kesedaran dan kematangan ‘social journalism’ di Malaysia seperti yang saya paparkan di atas.
Buat saya, melihat WA diletakkan dalam halaman yang sama dengan nama-nama besar dalam industri seperti Bloomberg TV, The Edge dan NST adalah satu penghormatan.
Buat rakan-rakan yang minat dalam industri ini, saya cadangkan anda langgan newsletter ini. Anda boleh dapat maklumat segar yang mungkin membuka peluang untuk menapak masuk. Ada nama, emel dan nombor telefon mereka di situ.
Saya sendiri memang selama ini jadikan ia sebagai satu sumber untuk ‘catch up’ dengan perkembangan pantas industri yang tak pernah tidur ini.
