Celebrating World Sports Journalists Day

By |July 2nd, 2024|0 Comments

The World is today celebrating sports journalism. This day has been commemorated for several years, always on 2nd July, since it is the day when AIPS the Association of International Sports Media was founded. This year’s celebration is a special one because of the fact that AIPS is celebrating its 100th year anniversary since its foundation way back in 1924 during a meeting that was held in Paris. On this occasion, AIPS President, Gianni Merlo, wished that all that has been acquired in sports media will be sustained and renewed for the future.

Imfakkar il-Jum Dinji ddedikat lill-Ġurnaliżmu Sportiv

By |July 2nd, 2024|0 Comments

Illum kien imfakkar il-Jum Dinji ddedikat lill-Ġurnaliżmu Sportiv. Dan il-jum ilu jiġi ċċelebrat għal diversi snin u dejjem ikun iċċelebrat fit-2 ta' Lulju ta' kull sena għaliex huwa l-jum li fih kienet twaqqfet l-AIPS, l-Assoċjazzjoni Internazzjonali tal-Media Sportiva. Din is-sena hija ċelebrazzjoni speċjali minħabba l-fatt li l-AIPS qed tfakkar il-100 sena anniversarju mit-twaqqif tagħha lura fl-1924 f'laqgħa li kienet saret f'Pariġi. F'messaġġ tal-okkażjoni l-President tal-AIPS Gianni Merlo awgura li dak li ġie miksub fl-aħħar mitt sena ikun imġedded għall-futur. B'referenza għas-sitwazzjoni attwali ta' żieda sostanzjali ta' nies li jaħdmu esklussivament fuq il-mezzi soċjali, xogħol bl-intelliġenza artifiċjali u l-fenomenu tal-Content Creators, Merlo qal li l-ġurnalisti jridu jagħrfu jimxu maż-żminijiet u ma jibżgħux mill-bidla. Dan il-messaġġ sar waqt laqgħa interattiva li għaliha attendew mijiet ta' ġurnalisti minn madwar id-dinja.
