Radio Presenters in Accra Are Not Doing Anything Better – Sammy Flex
Host of Showbiz Agenda on Zylofon 102.1 FM, Samuel Atuobi Baah popularly known as Sammy Flex has said that Accra radio presenters are not any better than the presenters in the Eastern Region.
Sammy Flex disclosed in an interview with ABEN FM’s Kumi Kasa and Jah Solo on the ‘Entertainment Friday’ show that, “When given equal opportunity, presenters in Accra are not better than those in other regions; we have presenters in other regions who do better than radio presenters in Accra”
According to him, “Radio is about numbers. To be the best means you must have the numbers listening to you, and we have a lot of radio stations outside Accra with more listeners than some radio stations in Accra.”
He however added that the only problem most entertainment shows in Eastern Region face is a lack of analytical punditry. “People listen to shows in Accra because of pundits on the shows, critical submissions and good analysis from pundits is what is holding most of the shows in Accra, therefore, I will urge the various hosts in Eastern Region to get good pundits on their platforms.
Sammy Flex advised owners of radio stations that “modern logistics must be put in place and if workers are indeed relevant, there should be the provision of allowances and accommodation to make their lives contented so that they will not move to Accra.”
However, he encouraged radio personalities in the Region to read and do more research.
