POSTGRADUATE student journalist Alistar Kata is in the hot seat as Pacific Media Watch contributing editor this year.
She follows in the footsteps of Taberannang Korauaba (Kiribati), Josie Latu (Tonga), Alex Perrottet (Australia), Daniel Drageset (Norway) and Anna Majavu (South Africa) and faces a challenge keeping up with the region’s news on the media freedom project.
However, Kata is taking her appointment in her stride – it is a “natural progression”, she says.
“I’ve worked closely with the Pacific Media Centre when covering the elections in Fiji, and I feel like this is where I belong," she says.
