The Public Review Newspaper was established in 2012 by its publisher Joseph Turay, who was one time Acting Secretary General and Deputy Secretary General of the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ). Mr. Turay was also the former Public Relations Director of Don Bosco.
The newspaper has a wide coverage, incorporating digital and electronic distribution methods. The team consists of 11 Staff members including Publisher/Editor in Chief, News Editor, Staff Writers, Feature Editor, reporters, Provincial Correspondents (North, East and South), Sports Editor, Graphic designer/ Lay out Secretary and Freelancers.
Initially, the newspaper was published and circulated three (3) times a week when it started in 2012, but it is now published and circulates five times a week.
Though the bulk of the paper is circulated in Freetown, vendors in the provincial headquarter towns sell copies in their areas of locations thereby making it go far and wide.
Presently, we print three thousand (3,000) copies per each edition. The Management focuses on developmental issues and other matters of national interest.
Our motto is “Review Society for Positive Change” which depicts that the stories we do publish are tailored or border on key national issues geared towards promoting development.
Over the years, the paper has created a niche because of its objectivity and independent stance.
Mainly our business approach is dealing with corporate institutions and the business community at large has been congenial and remarkable based on a win-win platform.
We are proud to state that we have helped in promoting huge capital investments in Sierra Leone as well as drawing attention to human rights abuses through our human interest stories that seek to expose the plight of poor people.
The paper has a team of dedicated professionals. Its publisher holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Mass Communication, from Fourah Bay College (FBC), University of Sierra Leone, Diploma in Journalism (USL) and a Certificate in Peace and Conflict (USL). He has over 16 years experience in the field of practical journalism.
Having regional reporters across the country hinges on its wide coverage across the country.
