My name is JIMI DISU,an alumnus of the University of Lagos.I started my journalism career in the DAILY TIMES in 1975,just before I got admission into the university.My career experience spans over media work as assistant editor of the PUNCH, Business Editor of the VANGUARD NEWSPAPERS, Senior Manager and Head Corporate Affairs of Lever Brothers in the 80s,and media consultant to blue chip companies like TOTAL NIGERIA PLC,CRUSADER INSURANCE,HUNTLEIGH HEALTHCARE,LTD,PHILLIPS PROJECT CENTRE,COCA COLA,WORLD TRADE CENTRE,WAMCO,INDUSTRIAL GASES etc. I was also recently the Marketing Director of the COMPASS NEWSPAPERS and later 234NEXT.I have also been a judge for over ten years in the famed DIAMOND AWARD FOR MEDIA EXCELLENCE (DAME), which is the foremost annual award organ for media practitioners
I have a wealth of experience in conducting interviews which was manifest in my “60 minutes column” published both in THIS DAY and the VANGUARD newspapers. I have also done media reviews on both CHANNELS TV (a regular guest on SUNRISE) and TV Continental every Saturday morning.Currently I am a resident analyst on FRONT PAGE NEWS on Classic FM,broadcast weekdays at 7am.I also anchor a discussion program every Sunday on Classic FM at 2pm
I believe I am a clear headed,well rounded journalist who wants to contribute to making our society a better place to live in.I have been in this struggle for long and I know that even if it doesn’t happen in my lifetime,Nigeria will be a great country again.
Where do i get my inspiration from? GOD,WOLE SOYINKA,FELA ANIKULAPO KUTI,SOBO SOWEMIMO SAN!
