Chairman of Broadcasting Organizations of Nigeria, John Ugbe, said his upcoming award will boost media practice in the country.

Ugbe, who is also the Managing Director of Multichoice Nigeria, said this during the week during an event to unveil the Nigeria Broadcasting Award logo. According to him, the event is a recognition of the excellence of the media in the country.

Scheduled for October 2022, Ugbe noted that it will celebrate excellence in broadcast media professionals.

He also said that the decision to establish TNBA was taken at BON’s 76th General Assembly, which approved the composition of the awards steering committee comprised of public and private broadcast media under the chairmanship of Guy Murray-Bruce, the chairman of the Silverbird group.

Ugbe added: “BON, having noted the need to motivate media professionals responsible for the daily dissemination of information, public education and entertainment, has decided to recognize and reward them for their work in ‘Excellency.

“BON therefore organizes TNBA to recognize and reward excellence in the broadcast media industry.”

The awards are open to BON members and non-members alike, and will include 13 categories, including ‘Radio Station/Best TV Station of the Year’, ‘Best Radio Station/Best TV — English News’, Best Radio Station/Best Indigenous Language Television Station”, “Best Radio/Best Television Station – Original English Language Production” and “Best Radio/Best Television Station – Original Indigenous Language Production”.
