International news outlets and agencies still play a prominent role in shaping Africa’s narrative; how they tell Africa’s story matters. The Global Media Index 4 Africa is a way for ANF to address the way international outlets and agencies cover Africa. The index will rank 20 of the most influential global outlets on the continent based on their coverage of African stories. Indicators used in the Index include the number of Africa stories covered, diversity in the newsroom and content analysis. The Global Media Index is a partnership with ANF and the University of Cape Town. It’s co-funded by the Africa Centre (New York).
