Abstract

This study is an examination of corporate governance practice among Nigerian media and its implication on the growth and sustainability of media organisations. Survey research design was adopted while questionnaire was adopted as the instrument of data collection. The result obtained in this study established that there is a high level of non-compliance to corporate governance practices among media organisations in Nigeria (p. value .171); though, large numbers of the media practitioners believed in the concept, but failed to implement it and ignore infractions on the principles. The researchers, therefore, recommended that media organisations that desire growth and sustainability should not only embrace the principles of corporate governance, but must also, ensure compliance with the principles in their day-to-day operations.
