C-BAG demands assistance for radio stations on campus


the Campus Broadcasting Association of Ghana (C-BAG) has called on the management of various tertiary institutions to take steps to retool, resource and provide befitting buildings and equipment to support existing campus radio stations.

It has also called for proper restructuring of campus radio stations to realign them to the structures of their respective institutions and to conform to the best practices in the media industry.

This, they believed would help make campus radio stations effective and answerable to the university community.

These were contained in a 14- point communique issued and signed by its President Mr Abubakari Sidick Ahmed at the end of the 5th General Meeting of the association held at the university of Cape Coast.

The communique encouraged management of the various institutions to recognise the important role of their radio stations for research, community outreach, career development, nurturing and mentorship as well as improving intra and inter campus communication.

In this regard, it appealed to the Government, regulatory bodies, donor agencies, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and other corporate institutions for a continued support

The association also called on management of the various tertiary institutions to consider instituting progression channels for their staff and carry out periodic management training for them.

The communique encouraged students to take advantage of the opportunity offered them by the radio stations and consider their volunteerism as career development path to acquire skills

It commended the Ministry of Communication, managements, the Students’ Representative Councils and the general student body of the various institutions for their continued support.

The C-BAG was established as part of efforts to sustain a vibrant campus media and broadcasting network in tertiary educational institutions in Ghana and to seek an alternative voice on the broadcasting scene.
