The National Media Commission has issued a warning letter to Onua FM, warning the media house to call their employee, Captain Smart to order after the Presenter called for an uprising on Live Radio.
In a letter addressed to the Chief Executive Officer of Onua FM, the NMC raised concern about a recent broadcast in which Captain Smart called for insurrection against the State of Ghana and its institutions.
According to the NMC, this particularly broadcast crosses the line of robust and critical broadcasting and transforms Onua FM into a “megaphone of war”.
The NMC indicated that even though the said broadcast alone constitutes grounds for regulatory action, they believe that given the chance, management of the station will take the opportunity to bring their content to a level of professional acceptability.
The NMC further reminded Onua FM that exercising the required professional caution is in their own interest.
