The National Media Commission (NMC) has issued a final warning to twelve television stations for broadcasting objectionable content such as bogus lottery, occultism, money doubling, money rituals, and inappropriate sexual content (pornography) on many occasions.

The 12 stations are Asomafo TV, Adwenpa TV, Diamond TV, X TV, Funny TV, Big TV, Passion TV, Elephant TV, Best TV, Energy TV, Nkabom TV, and Seekers TV.

According to the NMC, they are repeat offenders and have thus been granted a final warning, after which regulatory action may be taken against them without further reference to them.

Repeat offenders

“The following stations, who were mentioned in our fortnight report, continued to broadcast offensive content after we publicly warned them.” They should be aware that this is their final warning. “Regulatory action may be taken against them without further reference to them,” the NMC declared in a press release signed and delivered by George Sarpong, Executive Secretary of the NMC, on December 11, 2023.

The publication highlighted the joint monitoring of the airwaves by the National Media Commission and the National Communications Authority (NCA) in November 2023.

“The second part of November saw an increasing trend of 64.7% in the overall number of reported cases of unethical and unlawful content on the airwaves above the first-fortnight report released on November 16, 2023,” according to the study.

“In the specific categories of illegal and unethical content, fake lottery increased sixfold (676%), while occultism doubled (105%).”Money doubling, on the other hand, declined by 23%, and money rituals decreased by 16%,” it stated.

The NMC expressed gratitude to the NCA for the positive collaboration in ensuring broadcast professionalism and reaffirmed its commitment to ensuring free, pluralistic, and responsible media in Ghana.
