Journalist reporter
I am Mr. Alou Mamane, a multi lingual journalist born in 1983 at Dosso state in Niger Republic. I have been working with various media outlets such as Garkuwa Radio, and radio Horizon FM. I am also working with Canal 3 TV, a private TV channel with international reach where I organize a weekly discussion program in Hausa, a major International language and the most dominant spoken local language in Niger. I lately founded Gimbiya newspaper in Hausa language .Meanwhile I am working with Nigerexpress.info news online website I graduated in English language and literature in June 2011 at the faculty of Arts and social sciences of the Abdou Moumouni Dioffo University in Niamey.. I also trained in the field of translation from English to French at the ministry of foreign affairs .I also translate from Hausa to Zarma , the main local languages in Niger.
I obtained a Master’s in communication ETEC a private high institute and recently I was invited by the Department of State through the foreign press center to cover the American presidential campaign from September to October 2012 where I witnessed the first face to face debate between the incumbent Président Barack Obama and his challenger Mitt Romney. And for sure, this experience has broadened my understanding of the international press environment.
