About

Pieter van der Merwe is a junior reporter at Jacarandafm, a Gauteng based radio station. He goes out on the odd story or two, but mainly is responsible for the news of the afternoon drive.

He studied journalism at the University of Pretoria where he completed both his undergraduate course and honours under the supervision of Pippa Green and Marenet Jordaan. There he also studied under the likes of Carmel Rickard, Stephen Grootes, Alet Pretorius and Jabulani Sikhakhane.

He established this blog to further explore his love affair with both current affairs and writing, and partly to avoid the Pretoria sun. But it is not straight forward. The blog has been divided into three main categories: General News/ Not the Headlines/ Visual Storytelling. The first is self-explanatory, but the second and third are a bit more vague. Not the Headlines will consist of articles on issues that do not necessarily make their way into the main stream media stretching to experimental writing and
sometimes downright fiction. The visual page will likewise not only consist of photo stories that are news related. The blog will be updated as regularly as possible.

Hope you enjoy and please, try and refrain from giving feedback.
