JMI Mourns Passing of Veteran Egyptian Journalist Hamdi Qandil
3 Nov. 2018 
 
Amman – Jordan Media Institute (JMI) mourns the passing of renowned Egyptian writer and journalist Hamdi Kandil who passed away late Wednesday at the age of 82.
 
The late Kandil was also an activist and a fierce critic of Arab governments, but a widely respected media figure whose shows were watched by millions across the Arab World.

He was also a friend of JMI, and was a guest of honor at the graduation ceremony of the fourth batch of JMI students.

In his speech to the ceremony Kandil urged graduates to “understand the opponent’s motives, to challenge them with integrity and decency, and to give constructive criticism.” He also advised them to speak the truth by being true to themselves first.

Kandil, also a news anchor and talk show host, warned journalists from becoming political preachers and from turning their back on the profession. He noted that journalists should not join any political party or group so that they can maintain their independence and keep their biases in check.

 “The first message for any pioneer is to instigate change and reform,” said the late journalist, who was also an advocate of pan-Arabism.

 He stressed the need for fighting corruption and resisting oppression, and called for respecting religious beliefs, moral principles, and the national and Arab identity.
 
During his speech, Kandi further stressed the importance of spreading knowledge, and staying away from sensationalism, fake news, sex, and scandals. He urged the fresh journalists to be accurate and attentive to details and to work on strengthening media independence and freedom as well as the right to access information.
 
It is worth noting that “Hamdi Kandil” worked for several Egyptian newspapers and magazines including “Akhbar Al-Yawm”. He was the host of TV programs “Editor in Chief” broadcast by the Egyptian Television, and “Pencil” broadcast by Dubai TV, which became one of the most popular and respected talk shows in Arab countries. He was recipient of several awards including the Media Personality of 2013. The following year, he published an autobiography entitled: “I Lived Twice.”
