Monday 29th October 2018, Accra: When on Saturday night, the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) crowned Host of the Citi Breakfast Show, Mr. Bernard Avle, Journalist of the Year, the cheers that greeted the announcement was resounding.
Minutes after, social media went live with spontaneous comments from the public eulogizing the young man for the impact he has had directly and indirectly on the lives of the people. The feedback from the public was natural; it gave a sense of how the public has universally endorsed his nomination and eventual crowning as the ‘Man of the Moment’.
Mr. Avle’s impact on radio is unquestionable. His profound insight into issues is incisive. He has redefined journalism by constantly redirecting the media’s attention to things that directly impacted the lives of the people.
He is noted for ‘speaking truth to power’ in such a refined manner to achieve results. His style is crisp, factual, and sometimes hard-hitting but he often laced it with so much warmth and humour that listening to him is refreshing.
Indeed, the height he has attained, the fame and reverence that come with it rest on nothing but his talent, hard work, tenacity and above all opportunity.
He is deserving of the award and the team at Dalex is profoundly proud to be associated with him.
