This story is about Komla Dumor’s meteoric rise to the enviable position of an icon in International and African Broadcast journalism. The story is largely woven on at least three fundamental principles. Namely journalism as a vocation and a calling, journalism and its practice is driven by only one ideal standard. Journalism is defined both in theory and in practice as defined by ethical compass and the discipline of verification. It is the adherence to these tenets of journalism that placed Komla at the top pile.
