Ghana: Metro TV Makes Impact


From a humble beginning, Metro TV has rose to become a force to reckon with in the media landscape in the country and beyond. Established some few years ago, it has made giant strides especially in the sports fraternity, having won the best TV Sports Station Award in succession.

Their exceptional coverage in sports has endeared them to both sports lovers and the non fanatics alike. What is more, their high sense of news have brought the world closer to its viewers more than before with the telecast of live programs internally and externally. Emerging as the best TV Station as far as covering the just-ended Africa Cup of Nations is concerned attests to their high high sense of duty and professionalism.

During the biennial soccer fiesta, their behind the scenes activities, live Black Stars updates and their quest to telecast all UEFA Champions League and 24hrs premier league games every Sunday and Monday, the composition of the Black Stars' cheer song by Talal Fattal and Love Ashitey places them far above their competitors.

A few months ago, it embarked on a successful soccer reality show dubbed "MTN Metro TV Soccer Academy" which churned out more soccer potentials. Among the soccer prospects it unveiled is Gideon Baah, whose exceptional speed and ball control saw him reigning supreme in the maiden soccer reality show. Tomorrow, Metro TV will telecast live the UEFA Champions League game between Liverpool and Inter Milan as well as the Arsenal-AC Milan game on Wednesday all at 8pm.
