The Ghanaian economy is densely monopolistic — from water providers to electricity providers — that it’s sometimes refreshing to have a bit of competition between these service providers. One aspect of the economy which is ruled by perfect competition is the media. Television stations and radio houses are heavily competing for viewership and listeners which encourages them to provide quality and interesting content to their ardent followers. Nana Aba Anamoah, a presenter on TV3 has boldly claimed that Viasat 1 Tv, can never compete with media house she works for.
In an interview with KOD on Live FM, the ace broadcaster and host of New Day on TV3 revealed the reason for the attack on Viasat One being that when TV3 and other television stations were nominated for best copy-cut TV stations in Ghana, in Viasat 1’s JIGWE Awards.
“I had a call one morning that Viasat One TV were organizing some award show and were rewarding worst Television Stations in Ghana and obviously they claimed to be the best and the other stations were not good enough, and I was thinking about TV3 which they come no close to.”
The mother of one also suggested that Viasat1 should up its game to overtake UTV and Gh One owing to the fact that their performances as recent Television Stations is of a high standard than them.
“I didn’t appreciate what Viasat One did, people think a lot because so many things go into putting programmes together. Usually you have got to respect competition so Viasat One TV should concentrate on their programmes because UTV and GhOne are doing better than them.”
