Mideno Bayagbon, former Vanguard Editor Launches the Guru News Portal

Former Vanguard editor, Mideno Bayagbon, has launched a premium online news website, thenewsguru. com, now the fastest news portal in Nigeria. Bayagbon, whose resignation from Vanguard newspaper took effect last Tuesday, was editor of Vanguard for eight years, a period which saw momentous growth of Vanguard newspapers both in the hard copy and online.

His resignation, which caused a huge stir in the industry last week, he said, was to pursue his dream of owning an online news website which he described as the latest frontier in journalism. Mideno Bayagbon’s emergence in the online news business gives fillip to the call by Aremo Segun Osoba, ex governor of Ogun State, during the launch of Nigeria Guild of Editors House in Lagos, that professional journalists urgently need to go into online news publishing as a way of arresting the seeming lack of professionalism among some practitioners in the social media space.

TheNewsGuru, which came on stream in the first week of September, 2016, has witnessed phenomenal growth since its quiet entry. It is today adjudged, by all the rating agencies, as the fastest rising news portal ever in Nigeria
