NBC ‘admires’ state-of-the-art facilities at NYSC radio station
The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has expressed satisfaction with the state-of-the-art facilities at the NYSC radio station based at the National Executive Headquarters in Abuja.
The Commission’s Area Director, Ms Pauline Ehusani, said so today when she led a team of commission officials on an assessment tour of the radio station.
The Abuja area office covers FCT, Nasarawa, Kogi, Niger and Kwara States.
The area director also welcomed the granting of a broadcast license to the program by the federal government to operate a radio station which will give more voice to the program.
She recalled that the station had already been inspected by NBC engineers, adding that the purpose of her visit was to ensure processes are being followed while broadcast content is delivered in compliance with applicable laws.
Ehusani congratulated the General Manager, Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim and the entire management for the initiative to establish the radio station.
“From our observations, we can say that NYSC radio is fully ready to begin transmission.
We pray that NYSC Radio services will go far,” she said.
The area manager insisted on the need for proper training of the staff who would work in the radio station.
She urged them to avail themselves of the relevant articles of the National Broadcasting Code in order to be properly guided.
“It’s very important for studio executives to look inward and study the National Broadcast Code by studying the rules.
I advise every studio operator to go through the various sections of the National Broadcast Code to familiarize themselves with broadcast, advertising, engineering standards, among others,” she said.
Other NBC team members include; Chief Oversight, Martha Ikwue, Chief Oversight, Hussana Ibrahim and Deputy Chief Oversight, Margaret Ali Kure
NYSC Chief Executive Officer Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim commended the federal government and NBC management for granting approval to NYSC to operate both radio and television stations.
He said the stations would promote government programs and policies, tell the NYSC story to the world, train Corps members who are passionate about broadcast journalism, create employment opportunities for Corps members, generate more revenue on behalf of the federation, among other benefits.
He added that studio operators would comply with all broadcasting regulations approved by the regulatory agency.
