Broadcasters enter new hall of fame
Industry body the Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria (BON) is to honour veteran broadcasters in Nigeria by creating a hall of fame.
The project, created by John Momoh, the Chairman of BON and CEO of Channels Media, will recognise broadcasters who have contributed to the growth of the industry.
Osaze Iyamu, convener of the broadcasters’ group, said 15 people had been selected for the hall of fame from more than 120 nominations.
“The hall of fame is recognition for achievers in the broadcast industry. It should have come a long time ago,” Iyamu said.
Broadcasters honoured include Anike Agbaje Williams, Suleiman Takuma, Abba Zoru, Kunle Olasope and Isola Folorunso.
