The Media Foundation for West Africa’s (MFWA) monitoring of language use on selected radio stations across the country continues to show a decline in the use of indecent language on radio.
The second week’s (August 11-17) monitoring report shows 11 indecent expressions recorded from 134 programmes monitored on 26 target radio stations.
The report cites individuals belonging to three (3) political parties – the New Patriotic Party (NPP), National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the National Democratic Party (NDP) and a morning show host at the Nsawam-based Oxy FM, as using indecent expressions.
The report also praised one individual for making a pacifist comment.
Attached is the full report.
