Luanda, Angola (Africa Newswire) — Angola media list contains newspapers, radio, television stations and online news sites that businesses, organizations and other entities use to distribute press releases to journalists and to their Angolan audiences.
To send a press release to journalists in Angola, like any other country, requires that one knows the media of that nation: Will the press release reach its target audience; will journalists not only receive but freely write a story from the news release? Therefore, it is imperative to understand the legal environment journalists operate, the composition of the communication infrastructure, the economy and political atmosphere that allows media to function in that nation.
In the case of Angola, the media is mostly run and controlled by the government. For example, there is only one news agency Angola — the ANGOP and Radio National de Angola (RNA); all are owned and operated by the government. However, Radio Morena, Radio Lac Luanda and Radio Ecclesia are private radio outlets.
When it comes to print media, the government-own Jornal de Angola is the only daily newspaper in Anglola. The Angolan government also owns Angob that is published in English. The weeklies, O Pais, Folha 8 and Novo Jornal are privately owned.
The national television network, Televiso Popular de Angola, is operated by the government as well, while WT Mundovideo is privately owned.
On the new media front, the Angolan government also has a heavy hand on its usage. However, its penetration remains at 26.5 percent, according to Internet World Stats. Today there are 9 million Internet users in Angola – a country with a population of 34 million.
If the Internet usage in Angola is showing any sign of growth, communication in this country is surviving from the overcontrol of media. Journalists have been subjected to censorship and the rampant use of defamation as instrument of silencing free speech, yet they work hard to reach their masses.
All these media outlets: newspapers, radio, television stations and the Internet largely reach their audience in local languages as well as in Portuguese, English, French and Spanish – Portuguese is the official language of Angola. With the help of Africa Newswire
