TVC News, a subsidiary of TVC Communications, has launched a new studio at its Lagos headquarters.
The studio was unveiled at a press event held last week in Nigeria’s largest city.
TVC Communications CEO Andrew Hanlon said: “Behind this state-of-the-art studio in Lagos lies the real engine of our news operation: a substantial team of journalists, producers, and the latest mobile satellite technology, spread throughout Nigeria, providing us with the ability to broadcast live anywhere, anytime.
“This will be put to the test this election weekend as over 80 million Nigerians go to the polls to cast their votes.
“We must be capable of mobilising correspondents and technical teams anywhere, anytime in this vast country, to cover stories within a very short space of time to get the story on air first.”
The new studio is part of plans to ensure the TVC group of companies turns into one of the leading media organisations in the country, according to Hanlon.
Stella Din-Jacob, director of news at TVC News, added: “We are incredibly fortunate to have some of the best people and broadcast facilities in continental Africa, which will enable us to bring the highest-quality news service to our viewers right across Nigeria, Africa and Europe.”
TVC was awarded the NBC Prize for the Best TV Station of the Year at the most recent Nigerian Media Merit Awards.
