The late Publisher/CEO Peter Lomas.

As staff, management and the board of directors cel­ebrate the Fiji Sun’s 23rd anniversary, we pay tribute to the pioneers and those who played a prominent role.

Some of them are no longer with us.

While the list is long, we recog­nise the immense contribution by Peter Lomas for his vision and work.

Mr Lomas laid the foundation by progressively revamping the newspaper.

He did it by training staff and upgrading equipment to meet the modern expectation of the media industry in a competitive environ­ment.

He believed that these were two critical factors that would help achieve the desired outcome of producing the kind of content that resonated with the readers.

This process continues today and is part of his legacy.

The Fiji Sun has invested in send­ing its staff to prestigious univer­sities and higher learning insti­tutions here and abroad to gain qualifications that would enhance their work.

It has a dedicated in-house train­ing programme, believed to be the only one in the media industry.

Newsroom, advertising and pro­duction staff have also benefited from the invaluable exposure to outside training.

It has helped in producing a prod­uct that we are all proud of.

Today we also recognise the con­tribution of staff and wish them all the best for the future.

They have kept alive the hopes and dreams of our late pioneers.
