The National Communications Authority (NCA) has approved the grant of 133 radio broadcasting licenses to a variety of businesses.
This includes new applications from companies whose FM radio stations were shut down as a result of the 2017 FM Audit, as well as existing stations seeking to renew their expiring FM Radio broadcasting authorizations.
Our sources in the NCA understands that Radio Gold which was closed down after the 2017 FM Audit is among the entities whose new applications have been approved.
Radio Gold’s and others’ licenses were revoked due to their failure to pay operating license charges and the expiration of their licenses.
They will not, however, automatically receive their former frequencies.
The approval is subject to the applicants participating in a workshop on the terms and conditions of FM radio broadcasting authorization.
The NCA’s new Governing Board, led by Isaac Emmil Osei-Bonsu, gave its approval at its meeting on Monday, October 11, 2021.
