Still committed to readers

TWENTY years ago this newspaper was created by a group of young Americans looking for an opportunity and challenge all their own.

Ever since, The Slovak Spectator has produced journalism with non-discrimination as a core value. The paper is now reasserting this philosophy once again by naming a mother of two young children, who would no doubt find it hard to break through the glass ceiling at most organisations in this country, as its editor-in-chief.

The Slovak Spectator gave me my first full-time job in early 2009. The newspaper business was already struggling then, and was to struggle more in the years to follow. As a journalist, I grew up in tough times, without ever really having the chance to see what good times were supposed to be like.

Even amid that challenging environment, under my predecessor and mentor Beata Balogová, The Slovak Spectator never made compromises that would interfere with our ethical standards and our vision to be a reliable partner for (not only) the international community in Slovakia. I resolve to make no such compromises from moving forward either.

The current team behind the newspaper is among those who responded to the controversial arrival of the Penta Investment Group into the ownership structure of Petit Press at the end of last year by staying firm in their place and in their commitment providing the best possible journalism to our readers.

And that’s what it all boils down to. In the 20 years of its existence The Slovak Spectator has always been there to offer timely and reliable information, tailor-made to target what our readers need to know. Our team is ready to continue playing its part in this relationship. Thank you for playing your part.
