Sierra Leone held presidential, parliamentary and local council elections in November 2012. BBC Media Action supported election-related reporting by supporting members of the International Radio Network in Sierra Leone to provide appropriate election coverage in the run-up to the elections. The BBC Media Action research team in Sierra Leone conducted 13 in-depth interviews with journalists, mentors and listeners of four IRN stations (Choice FM, Eastern Radio, Radio New Song and Radio Bankasoka) after the election to obtain feedback on results of the training provided.
