ROLE MODEL OF THE WEEK, EUNICE JOHNSON – TV PRESENTER, BROADCASTER AND AWARD WINNING AMBASSADOR

MY PERSONAL BIO-

Eunice Johnson nicknamed Southpaw (for being a lefty), is a vibrant Broadcaster with remarkable experience in the Media Business. She has worked as a Television Presenter with Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, where she anchored series of programmes such as Insight, The Caregiver, Agro Techno, Career Choice, Telecom Today, a programme powered by Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), and a host of others. 

She has also occupied leadership positions in this field which includes being the Head of Programmes at Television Nigerian (TVN), where she was a Newscaster and T.V Host after which she became Head of the News Department. Her varied career feats also include a stint as a Presenter with Daar Communications’ A.I.T/RAYPOWER, Aso Radio etc. Having freelanced for different News Magazines at different levels, you can conveniently say she has mastered the media trade at different levels. 

Clearly, the Media Business is not the only thing that tickles her fancy as she delved into Public Relations which she equally practised at different levels from managerial to consultancy. As a Chatered Public Relations Officer and Member of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), she went on to practice PR after obtaining different Professional Certificates in the field at some point in her professional career and thereafter, cutting her professional teeth by consulting for a few firms. She became the National Public Relations Officer (P.R.O) of an N.G.O of Special Consultative Status with the United Nations (UN) for a reasonable span of years before finding her way back into the Broadcast scene, particularly as a TV Presenter with the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA. She is also a member of Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ). 

Aside also handling a good number of major Projects for different Organisations, she is a professional Events’ Comperè and she has comperèd at different corporate events both locally and internationally some of which include: an Award Ceremony and Side Event held in the United Nations Headquarters, New York City during the United Nations General Assembly. Another, is the Day Of The African Child event which had various African Ambassadors in attendance, Political Conventions, an F.R.S.C Summit where she represented a Veteran Broadcaster  and many more.

She is interestingly a good singer, song writer, music composer and those are things she spends her ‘me time’ doing as she finds it a good and therapeutic way to relax. For her, it helps ease tension and makes work seem lighter. She has also done a lot of voice overs/narrations for documentaries, award citations etc.

She currently works at a paramilitary Media establishment where she serves as a Newscaster, Producer, Presenter, editor, content creator etc. 

Following her flair for aesthetics and decoration, Eunice acquired skills including a certificate course in Interior and Exterior Design. She is the Founder and CEO of eu-NICE Decors, an Interior and Outdoor Decoration Company.

She is happily married to an ace multiple Award winning Broadcaster and Filmmaker and they are blessed with lovely Children.
