Times Media has announced that it has changed its name to the Tiso Blackstar Group.
“Our businesses are underpinned by a unique network of media assets, a dedication to excellence and a strong entrepreneurial focus. This network differentiates Tiso Blackstar Group from its competitors and is the cornerstone of its future sustainability and success,” says Tiso Blackstar Group CEO, Andrew Bonamour, in a statement.
Tiso Blackstar Group is the largest national English publishing group and the second largest digital publisher in South Africa. It also owns the largest music and independent film catalogue in Africa as well as TV channels, TV production and radio stations in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa. Through its eventing arm, The Empire, Tiso Blackstar Group has hosted some of South Africa’s most prestigious events.
“Our dedication to quality is central to the group’s mission as we innovate and build across our various divisions,” Bonamour said. “The values that have built our group for decades remain central to our future and our business. We all have a great responsibility to use our respective platforms to speak the truth with fairness and impartiality.”
From the first editions of its newspapers the Sunday Times, the Dispatch and the Herald more than a hundred years ago, the group has been committed to producing premium content across all of its platforms.
Today, as a broad-based multi-platform company, Tiso Blackstar Group is equally focused on providing quality content and services to audiences, advertisers and its customer base across Africa and the world.
