As part of efforts to increase its outlets and widen listenership in the country, is to open new radio stations at Yendi in the Northern Region and Bawku in the Upper East Region.

The basic needs requirements for the Stations to start operating are being provided while that at Bawku has even started with test transmission to be officially inaugurated soon.

The Director–General of GBC, Prof Amin Alhassan, dropped the hint in an interview with a Radio Ghana Correspondent at Bawku during his four -day tour to GBC Stations in the Northern and Upper East Regions.

Prof Alhassan who was accompanied by the Acting Director of Radio,Yaw Opoku Agyapong, stressed the need for the Corporation to maintain its cultural heritage by roping in  the  local languages to enable the audience to better understand issues to reduce tribal conflicts and wars.

He asked the public to disabuse the notion that GBC is not living up to its expectation, adding that the Corporation’s standard of service delivery in terms of professionalism, cannot be compared to any station in Ghana but  rather International ones like the South African Broadcasting Corporation, Kenya Broadcasting and Namibia Broadcasting.

Prof Alhassan noted that GBC is the oldest and only broadcasting house which blends culture in its ways of disseminating information to the public.
