NMC should be in charge of spectrum distribution not NCA
The Ghana Independent Broadcasters Association has reacted to the shutdown of some forty-nine illegal television stations by the National Communications Authority for operating without authorization. Following the shutdown Wednesday, April 21, the NCA explained that the move forms part of a continuous monitoring exercise conducted on various Satellite Free-to-Air Television platforms using the Broadcast Monitoring System and the Radio Spectrum Monitoring System. GIBA believes that the distribution and management of radio and television spectrum must be done by the National Media Commission rather than the NCA. Speaking on the Morning Starr Thursday GIBA President Andrew Danso-Aninkora intimated that after authorization has been given to the owners, there should be some monitoring as to who comes on the platform.
