Overview

Media Monitors formally Media Monitoring Project Zimbabwe (MMPZ), conducts media monitoring and analyses trends in the Zimbabwean media. Media Monitors has been conducting media monitoring in Zimbabwe since 1999. The organisation monitors print, electronic and online media on a daily basis (24/7). We monitor video footage from the country’s sole television station (ZTV), audio from seven radio stations (SFM, Radio Zimbabwe, Power FM, National FM, Star FM, ZiFM and Channel Zim) as well as 15 local newspapers. Media Monitors identifies and analyses editorial and advertising trends in the media. The organisation is a hub for all media information in Zimbabwe, providing a holistic assessment of media and information output and its impact in the public interest.

Media Monitors has a business arm, Media Vantage, which offers different monitoring services to different clients.
