Founder and co-owner of MaltaToday, Saviour Balzan has reported on Maltese politics and society for over three decades.

In his early days he was actively involved in the environmental lobby and later the Green Party, Alternattiva Demokratika. He later immersed himself in journalism, working to set up newspapers such as il-Fehma, l-Alternattiva, The People and The Independent daily. .

MaltaToday was launched in 1999 to become a leading English-language newspaper. Balzan extended the Mediatoday stable with Maltese-language newspaper Illum, as well as TV programmes Xtra and Reporter. His memoirs are published in Saying It As It Is.
