Diana Gorban: “Journalists’ Union Isn’t Closed Club for Snobs”

Diana Gorban: “Journalists’ Union Isn’t Closed Club for Snobs”

Krasnodar, 25 April – Yug Times. This year, the Union of Kuban Journalists is celebrating its 60th anniversary. We asked Chair Diana Gorban to recount the problems and prospects of the Union.

Q.: What is your family background and what was your way to journalism?

A.: I was born and grown up in Beloglinsky, the smallest and remotest rayon of Krasnodar krai. My father was an engineer, and my mother was an accountant. I graduated from the Historical Faculty of the Kuban State University, and it was a mere chance that I became a journalist. When I came back to my home town, Belaya Glina, I got a temporary job of a school teacher. But no sooner had I become to work as a teacher than I was invited to the local TV studio – they were looking for somebody with a university diploma in any liberal arts for the lack of graduates in journalism. This was how I became a correspondent of the information centre, where the same people did the newspaper that appeared three times a week and two TV evening newscasts.

Q.: Do you think you are more an editor or a manager?

A.: You can’t divide these functions if you work at a local newspaper, but I would say I’m more of a media manager. I have to ensure the publication of the issue and I have to find money for that – our municipal contract covers only 5% of our total budget. We have many projects, say, now we [the local newspaper coming out in Poltavskaya, Krasnoarmeisky rayon] are sponsoring a football tournament. This contest has been held for more than forty years, and our local people and sports fans have been used to it. Last autumn, we held our local youth music festival – it took us a lot of effort and time to hold it. So, one can’t be just an editor this time.
