Intense digital and print media training by three Indian experts wrapped up at the Fiji Sun with a special presentation to the Asia Media Design team.
Jai Kumar Sharma, Roshan Tamang and Manav Mishra were given Flying Fijians jer- seys in a farewell held in the Fiji Sun’s Gorrie Street newsroom.
The presentation of the jerseys was special. It signified the teamwork emphasised throughout. Plus the keen interest in Fijian rugby shown by the Indian trainers.
Why were the team of experts from India here?
“We’re integrating development of our print and digital operations,” Fiji Sun Publisher/CEO Peter Lomas said.
“We are now the undisputed newspaper leaders. We were the first interactive newspaper in this part of the world. We are building our already strong digital media presence and linking the two.”
Mr Lomas said the Fiji Sun will roll out a range of developments that will extend and enhance its reach and services.
This followed extensive research conducted for the Fiji Sun by Western Force Research and Pulse Insights, both experts in the Fijian media market.
“We’re well positioned and equipped to serve our readers and advertisers going for- ward in an era of rapid media change,” Mr Lomas said: “The Asia Media Design team are the best in the business.”
