He hinted that the station has a state-of-the-art studio backed by seasoned presenters and disc jockey who are experienced, knowledgeable and talented.

According to him, the station which broadcasts 80 percent of local music and programmes and 20 percent for others is managed by a team of experts from administration, finance, legal and marketing.

On his part, the Operations Manager of the station, Yaw Asempa-Boateng said the station has a number of educative programmes to be aired soon, adding that the station could boost of good presenters whose work is being recognized by myriad radio listeners.

“We think there is room for business, and those who know how well to do it will do well. It will be difficult, we know, but we have taken it as a challenge and we promise to give our listeners the best radio experience,” he said.
