Title: Sierra Leone Times


Mission: Sierra Leone Times was conceived in 2002 to provide up-to-the minute news about the country, together with international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Sierra Leone Times, an online newspaper, provides coverage of the country and Africa generally. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.

Sierra Leone Times and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network.

Associated sites include: Africa Leader | Mediterranean Times | Kenya Star | Madagascar Sun | Nigeria Sun | Zimbabwe Star | Johannesburg Life | Cape Town Express
