“The vision is to add to the value of broadcasting in Ghana,” Gabby, as he is affectionately called, said on the second anniversary of Asaase Radio 99.5 in Accra.
“One thing I am pleased about Asaase is the professionalism. I think it’s not by accident that Asaase has not endangered any negative controversy.
“What I mean is that we are not a station that sets out to defame anybody. We are not a station that sets out to attack personalities. We are not a station that goes out there to do propaganda, for or against other stations,” Gabby said on The Asaase Breakfast Show on Tuesday (14 June).
It has been two years of bringing our listeners exciting programming, excellent news and setting the pan African agenda in Ghana. As part of the celebration, Asaase Radio 100.3 MHz officially goes live in Cape Coast.
“I think for those who thought that we were going to do one-sided politics or whatever, because we build this station on strong ethics of journalism, we’ve been factual, we’ve been objective, we’ve been pan African, which is actually, if I dare say, is the first in our country,” Gabby added.
He also acknowledged the importance of the station in Ghana’s media industry, adding that “we’ve been constructive in many ways and when it comes to entertainment, I mean I don’t know any station that everyday you have some superstar coming through.
“Whether it’s Naa Ashorkor‘s programme [Between Hours], whether it’s Elvis, whether it’s Caroline, even Nana Yaa Mensah interviews superstars so I think really we are defining what a true radio station should be and if we are not defining it we are adding value to the definition of true radio. So, all in all it’s been good.”
Today is also the first anniversary of Asaase 98.5 Kumasi.
