Sonkarley came to prominence in journalism at the defunct Liberia Communication Network (LCN) where he rose to become Director of News at “Kiss FM”.

Until his unfortunate demise, Sonkarley worked with the General Auditing Commission as Assistant Communication Officer.

PUL president K. Abdullai Kamara termed Sonkarley as the silent giant of Liberian broadcast news processing, according to a PUL release.

“The man lives on with great newsrooms and journalists he mentored,” Kamara asserted.

The PUL urges journalists and media workers to attend all funeral ceremonies including the night of silent wake keeping on Friday- June 17, 2016 at the Sonkarley residence in Sehn Town opposite the Liberian Broadcasting System in Paynesville.
