About Us

Sierra Express Media was established in September 2007 – reporting with objectivity, fairness, and accuracy, our aim was to engage the Sierra Leonean community at home and abroad, in news, current events, entertainment, and sport, etc.

This proved to be so popular that in November 2007, it was decided to publish Sierra Express Media newspaper in Freetown, in conjunction with the website, for the citizens of the country of Sierra Leone who do not have access to the Internet.

Sierra Express Media worked hard to build up the website and newspaper and now has a full complement of staff and correspondents worldwide.
