Médias et biographie : Jean Vincent-Dolor, 40 ans de journalisme à la Réunion (1948-1987)

Abstract : Qualitative approaches are useful to analyse the recent evolution of local medias in Reunion island. At the head of the State public radio and television in this French oversea territory, Jean Vincent-Dolor was an influent journalist from 1948 to 1987. He has been a central key actor for that crucial period. This paper deals with his life history throwing relevant light on changes in progress. Three main thematical aspects are set out here, issued from these biographical data : 1) his perception of the social and political former context ; 2) his conception of the dominant fonction of the media upon public opinion ; and 3) he expresses the dual identity — specific of the local decision makers in media area and others — , meaning a gap between the French national and gouvernemental sphere where he was told misunderstood and the island community within which he is perceived as one of the most powerful actor in media and political life.
