Liza Albrecht

Editor, Rapport

As editor of South Africa's national Afrikaans Sunday newspaper, Rapport, Liza Albrecht is one of the most powerful women in South African media. With a readership of over 1.6-million, Albrecht's paper is distributed all over South Africa and in Namibia. She began her career as editor of Student Newspaper Die Maties at Stellenbosch University in 1996. After her studies, she worked at Die Burger and then went on to work at Rapport as a reporter. With Albrecht's schedule, she doesn't have much time to relax with her children of 15 and 10, or her Siberian wolf dog. But, despite all the heavy hitters she talks to on a daily basis, she says her children are the most interesting people in the world and her best time is spent sitting and talking with them. � Eamon Allan
