A spotlight survey conducted by DUNCAN RESEARCH TEAM has flawed the performance of four radio stations in Ashanti region, exposing them as the most biased and unprofessional media houses.
Stations that popped up and were shortlisted consequent to their bias stands after the research was conducted are;
Hello Fm, Otec Fm, Kessben Fm and Angel Fm.
These findings were arrived at after DUNCAN RESEARCH TEAM selected thirteen radio stations in Ashanti region and subjected them to a thorough monitoring and performances assessment per the standards of journalism.
Of these four media houses, Hello fm according to the research emerged the most bias and discriminative, followed by Otec Fm which came second, Kessben Fm scoring the third position and Angel Fm coming fourth on the list.
According to the research team, the above listed institutions per their style of handling of panelist and coordination of talk show programs especially morning show are discriminative and bent on applying selective justice.
The research team holds the personal view that they (stations) characteristically tow a particular line of delivery as in limiting discussions related to their talk shows to a selected class of political characters, giving no room whatsoever to others to share their comment on their platforms.
Per their notion, these station operates on the principle that all human beings are not equal to be granted equal opportunities and fair play. To them, some individuals are too low in standard to be engaged on their programs and platforms.
Shocking revelations unearthed by the research team and copied to THE PRESS RADIO states point blank that these stations take the unprofessional stands in question to create an avenue to their advantage.
The underlisted information provides details on the percentage rate scored by the stations vis-a-vis discrimination and selective justice
Hello Fm- 100% + 50
Otec fm- 79%
Kessben fm- 75%
Angel fm 57%
However out of the 13 radio stations sampled for the research, nine proved themselves satisfactory to the standards of fairness.
1st Fox fm- 100% ( Oheneba Nana Asiedu- morning show host)
2nd Boss fm- 98% (Ofa Kofi Appiah-morning show host and Kwame Agyei Ananse- Boss encounter host)
3rd – Garden City Radio- 95% (Emmanuel K Takyi Boahene(Bishop), host for Nyansapo program),
4th – Sikka Fm- 89%( Alhassan Okogyeabour)
5th – Kumasi Fm- 89% (George Agude, morning show host)
6th – Nhyira Fm-(Kofi Asante, morning show host)
7th – Abusua Fm -69%(Osten Wood, host of Ghana Amanmuo)
8th – Agyenkwa Fm-62% (Nana Yae Joel, host Agyenkwa Dawuro)
9th -Bohy3 Fm- 52% (Agya Yaw, morning show host).
According to the leader and founder of the research team Mr. Boateng Duncan aka “Bombay”, the foregoing nine stations were those who encouraged equal opportunities to all persons irrespective of one class or political affiliation to speak on their platforms.
They were stations who never shielded perpetrators of crime and corruption.
“These are radio stations and presenters who have granted opportunities to people of all walks of life without discrimination or selective justice. So long as you are human, they will hold you in high esteem regardless of ones political, social, economic, political or ethnic status” he said.
“Whenever the need arise for you to speak through the platform you are welcome – there is no cross line” he added.
According to Mr Boateng Duncan, discrimination and selective justice doesn’t help in anyway with respect to nation building since it deprives the nation of diverse contributions made by majority of citizen which are necessary for the balancing of the economic scale.
For Mr Boateng Duncan it is expected of all media houses to treat all men equally, grant them opportunities and champion the agenda of justice for all.
“Media men should be appreciative of their salaries and avoid extortions” he added.
He however congratulated Oheneba, morning show host of Fox Fm for coming first on the list and challenged him to carry on with the good work.
