Abstract

The aim of this paper is to offer an overview of the first years of "Frente Nacional" (1958-1967) by identifying some of the actors and their relationships, as a way to deepen the study of journalism's professionalization process in Colombia. Among the actors we will highlight journalists associations, universities, international agencies and the Colombian State. Herein we propose three types of relationships: a journalism-politics relationship, in light of the two-party pact's consequences in the journalistic field; a second relationship among the unionizations that intended to associate journalists to defend interests common to the trade; and finally the relationship between journalism and the academy, taking into account the formalization of journalism studies in the first universities that offered a professional education in their study programmes.
