The media’s role in shaping understanding, bringing issues to the fore and generally contributing to the development of the nation cannot be underestimated. Despite the challenges faced by the media in Ghana, there also exists many exciting opportunities in the media. The usual news production cycle of the media was easily disrupted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Media organisations and journalists had to make drastic changes to meet the demands of their audiences shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic. In light of this, this paper seeks to assess the various challenges faced by the Ghanaian media as well as the various opportunities available for them in the post COVID-19 pandemic era to extend their reach and impact.
