Abstract:This article investigates the impact of 'corporatisation' and 'financialisation' on the media in Kenya since political and economic liberalisation took root in the early 1990s. The concepts 'financialisation' or 'corporatisation' of media industries refer to a system of media production, distribution, ownership and funding of media companies that is dominated by corporations and governed by the capitalist imperatives of maximising profits for investors, stockholders and advertisers. The authors use the example of the Nation Media Group (NMG) as a case study. Bibliogr. [ASC Leiden abstract]
