Dorothy Wickham started her career as a newspaper cadet in the Solomon Islands at the age of 17. She then moved to radio, freelancing for five years for the ABC, Associated Press and Radio New Zealand. Six years ago, Dorothy set up One News Television, the first local content TV provider in the Solomon Islands, where she is currently Chief Executive Officer. One News, originally nicknamed the '$1 Company', started with five staff and a 15-minute daily news service. In the intervening years, One News has grown substantially. It now employs over 50 staff, broadcasts around the clock and includes 8 hours of local content every day, as well as relays of Al Jazeera and Deutsche Welle.
