The Board Chair of the Campus Broadcasting Services [CBS], Prof. Peter Kojo Grant has in his new year message called on the general public to give the necessary support to ATL FM as the station prepares to bring to the general public the University’s TV Station, TV UCC.
It will be recalled that at the occupation of the Campus Broadcasting Centre facility in 2016, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast, Prof Ghartey Ampiah through Prof Magnus Wilmot hinted that the TV was to begin operation in the coming months.
On this premise, Prof. Grant said “we have been able to start our online portal, which is the atlfmonline.com and our radio is also doing very well. However the TV UCC is that which we hope to bring to fusion soon.”
Prof. Peter Kojo Grant explained that measures are being put in place to ensure a flawless transmission on TV UCC and added that internal preparations such as training of staff are ongoing to ensure that staff operate with the highest professional standards at the commencement of TV UCC.
“We are adequately preparing ourselves. We have taken our time in bringing to fusion the TV UCC because we do not want to start with flaws and later go off air to correct these flaws”, he said.
He explained, the university authorities are also ready to render support and provide all resources towards the realization of the TV UCC.
Prof Grant also said the station will continue to serve the society in and beyond Central region faithfully and called on the general public to make input that will best serve the interest of the station.
According to Peter Grant, “our media outlet is not only limited to the confines of the University but also seeks to serve the whole society in and beyond Central Region. We deem it our responsibility to undertake any service that brings progress and development to our region and the country as a whole’'.
