Adoni Media is proud to support young, up–and–coming Queensland journalists at this year’s Queensland Clarion Awards, which promotes excellence in media and recognises the achievements of journalists throughout Queensland.
This year, the awards are being held on Saturday September 7, and Adoni Media is proudly sponsoring the Regional and Community Broadcast Report category.
Adoni Media Founder Leisa Goddard began her journalism career as a 16-year-old high school student, working as an intern at the local Ipswich newspaper. Leisa said as a junior reporter, she’d had great mentors.
Leisa is now one of Australia’s top industry professionals, with more than 25 years of experience working as both a journalist and communications specialist. Leisa has been a reporter and presenter for Australia’s three commercial networks – Seven, Nine, and Ten and continues to be on-air as a Sky News media commentator. As the Managing Director of her own public relations and media agency Leisa has been privileged to mentor many young journalists and communications specialists.
Adoni Media values the importance of the Queensland Clarion Awards, and as a journalist, Leisa herself has been a Clarion finalist and in 2012 hosted the gala media event.
The Awards provide an opportunity to give back and support the young and rising talent throughout Queensland. Adoni Media works closely with businesses and services across Queensland from Cairns to the Gold Coast and as such works closely with regional journalists.
“I know how important regional media is so it is a privilege to help recognise excellence in regional broadcast journalist,” she said.
