News and current affairs channel Liberty TV berths on GOTV
7 October 2016
Two years after its debut as a foremost news and current affairs channel, Liberty Television, will start airing on Channel 110 on Gotv from Monday, October 3, 2016.
The development is an indication of the station’s increasing audience base across Nigeria and West Africa, “who are captivated by our unique mix of English and Hausa contents,” according to a statement from the Executive Chairman of ATAR Communications Nigeria Limited, Dr.Ahmed Tijjani Ramalan.
With the flag-off of digitization in May, 2016 by the Federal Ggovernment, in Jos, Plateau State, Liberty TV was included amongst the 15 pioneer TV content providers available on the nation’s first FreeTV.
“As we hope to hop onto other platforms such as the premium DSTV, we are planning on opening further bureaus across Africa, Middle East and Europe, that will give us further latitude to report the world to Africa, and report Africans and African affairs happening abroad,” Ramalan disclosed.
The 24-hour station broadcasts in Hausa and English, with active reporting from key Nigerian capitals and correspondents from Ghana, Sudan, Niger, Cameroun and Chad.
Liberty TV won two awards – Best TV Channel and Best Indigenous TV Station Awards – at 2016 edition of the Nigerian Broadcasting Media Merits Awards (NBMA).
