One of the major players in satellite television in the world, DSTV, owners ofÂ SuperSport yesterday at Planet One, Maryland, Lagos, Nigeria unveiled its onlineÂ news site with the Manager of the department, Emeka Enyadike charging mediaÂ practitioners to always give the site credit for their stories used.
Enyadike, a veteran journalist, said SuperSport is not out to compete with mediaÂ houses in Nigeria, but to complement the effort of the press to develop NigerianÂ sports and the rest of Africa.
He said the high standard set by SuperSports in the coverage of the 2010 FIFA WorldÂ Cup in South Africa has opened a new chapter in broadcasting on the continent, whichÂ must keep getting better.
The former publisher of Kick-Off Nigeria revealed that the company is committed toÂ the African sporting dream; hence the desire to continue to promote and exposeÂ African sports to rest of the world.
He disclosed that the site is already operational in eight African countries withÂ more to come on board early next year. Some of the countries, where SuperSport isÂ already operating are South Africa, Lesotho, Kenya, Malawi and Nigeria.
