Nathan Charles on assignment in Liberia

JHR Journalist leads national TV news team
At 7 pm on April 1st, Liberia National TV broadcast the evening news live for the first time in 22 years. Overseeing that broadcast was Nathan P. Charles, a JHR-trained award-winning journalist. As Acting TV News Coordinator, Nathan works with producers, reporters and camera people, to cover national news and put the nightly half-hour program on air.
A radio reporter by training, in 2009 Nathan started working with a JHR mentor at the ELBC radio station in Liberia's capital, Monrovia. As a member of JHR's local trainer team, he developed skills to mentor newsroom colleagues to improve their reports. Though he loves radio, Nathan admits television news "has been my dream" and he credits JHR training with giving him the skills for his new job.
"JHR has helped me to give a voice to the voiceless," Nathan explains. "It has helped me in this position to be more aware of how to operate and work as a team. Through JHR, I am aware of how accountable I am to my society. It has shaped me [as a journalist]. Television news is still relatively new in Liberia, and the team is learning as they go. Supported by JHR, Nathan ensures the nightly news includes human rights and governance issues.

Nathan Charles, a JHR trained journalist, spent over two months investigating and exposing the poor conditions at the Bong Mines hospital in Bong County, Liberia.
Through his ongoing investigation, Charles discovered that not only did the health center have inadequate facilities to serve the surrounding community, it also was short on doctors and medication.
"Through support from the JHR mentorship program I was able to produce seven stories , three [radio] reports and four [live radio] interviews from the area on the health conditions and I did constant follow up interviews with health authorities," said Charles.
It wasn't long before word spread about the conditions patients endured at the Bong Mines Hospital and the Liberian government was forced to step in.
The hospital now has a new doctor on staff and the Chief Physician's Assistant, Bobbie Moore, said that thanks to the work of Charles, the hospital is now taking on more patients and has a consistent flow of medication.
