Arday Clegg’s ‘Media Journey’ To Reveal Explosive Details Of His Encounter With Media Owners And Politicians
Ace Broadcaster, Kwaku Sakyi Addo has described Robert Nii Arday Clegg’s yet to be released book as containing stunning details about his “unplanned entry into Ghana’s vibrant broadcasting industry at the turn of the century and his largely triumphant yet occasionally tumultuous journey through it”.
Arday Clegg, a seasoned journalist, and Harvard scholar is known for his no-nonsense character and disciplined personality, but his new book promises to bring readers inside the world of journalism; the good, bad, and the ugly.
According to sources, the book titled “My Media Journey” has explosive accounts of Arday Clegg’s thoughts and actions on what he sees as corporate shenanigans and acts of meanness.
The book also has extensive inside details of acts of kindness and generosity extended to him in his line of duty and reveals how an intended deal with Seidu Agongo’s Class FM was aborted mid-way because of an alleged third party interference. “In Sedem’s presence, Mr Agongo offered to give me quite a substantial amount as a signing fee as well as a brand new Korean car for the job. He later gave me a cheque for the amount promised, leaving out the car discussion for another day” Arday Clegg noted in his book.
But as it later turned out, Mr. Agongo called him on phone to say he had held discussions with a respected lawyer who had expressed some reservations about their intended engagement.
“My Media Journey” is scheduled for release on February 11 at 5 pm. The book will be reviewed by Lawyer Ace Anan Ankomah while Kwaku Sakyi Addo is expected to chair the virtual launch with Kwami Sefa Kayi as MC for the night. The program will be on zoom and streamed live on Facebook and Youtube.
Paakwesiasare.biz has learned that “My Media Journey” also reveals Arday Clegg’s blunt opinions and how he rejected on multiple occasions offers of under the table monetary rewards from newsmakers as well as from unnamed government officials.
The book’s title comes from Arday Clegg’s biographical account of his media journey and evolving life and career.
