TV3 extends transmission to Ashanti

TV3, a private television station in Accra, has installed a five- kilowatt transmitter in Kumasi to extend transmission to Ashanti Region. Transmission, which began this month, covers a 60-kilometre radius.

Mr Shamsul Khalid Ismail, Managing Director of TV3, during a call on Mr Samuel Nuamah-Donkor, Ashanti Regional Minister, said the station is committed to providing the best news and programmes.

"For the three years that we have been in operation, we have chalked a lot of success", he said, citing several awards won both locally and internationally by the station.

Mr Ismail said, "the success story of TV3 should be a source of pride to the Ghanaian media".

The station currently transmits between 30 and 40 locally produced programmes, which would be increased to 70 by next year, he said.

Mr Nuamah-Donkor commended the TV3 crew in Kumasi for their good coverage of the region.
