Media24: Stuart Craib of ‘The Witness’ named ‘All-time Legend’

2012-07-20 00:00

STUART Craib, the outgoing chairperson of the Natal Witness Printing and Publishing company, the owner of The Witness, received the All Time Legend award at the Media24 Newspaper Legends awards in Camps Bay last night.

Presenting the award, J. Malherbe of Media24 — which recently took complete control of the company — said Craib had led the group of companies, which include a book publisher and printing plants, with distinction.

“For many years he has played an active and leading role in the industry, through Print Media SA and Sapa,” he said.

Malherbe said Craib had faced relentless attacks from opposition groups, particularly after his strategic growth plans started to show results.

“In spite of everything that these much bigger opposition groups could throw at them, Stuart has managed to strengthen and grow his business,” he said.

Also honoured at the awards function was The Witness reporter Trish Beaver, who was runner-up in the Lifestyle Journalist of the Year category.

The judges said Beaver’s entries, a series of lifestyle articles, were distinguished by her original, intelligent and humorous approach.

They singled out her feature on the Three Wise Men of Bethlehem in the Free State.
