The 97.5 Taranga FM Radio Station is set to commence broadcasting 24 hours daily with effect from January 2015.

The year would begin with the introduction of “Nokodundeh” an awareness raising show, weekly press review, “Pulaagu” a fula cultural show, “Firigenta” a dream interpretation show, “Kerr gui” a women’s advocacy programme and a host of social programmes.

The radio station would also feature religious programmes.

It will broadcast with its slogan: “The voice echo from Kombo North.”

The 2015 series of planned programmes were revealed on Wednesday at a press briefing organized by the radio station’s management held at its grounds in Sinchu Alhagie, Kombo North District, West Coast region.

The radio was also given the mandate to broadcasting in the French language on French issues in African countries, as well as give a chance to press clubs in various schools to discover their talents.

The radio had suffered a setback over the period of its closure, and the briefing was meant to announce to the public that they are back with more informative programmes in the public interest.

These additional programmes are set to immensely contribute towards the socio-economic development of the nation, the programme manager Biran B. Jobe said.

The station’s acting Managing Director, Alhagie Abdoulie Ceesay, said the radio station has opened its doors to the business community, as their aim is to keep the people informed.

According to MD Ceesay, the radio station is set to launch its website on 20 February 2015 at the Paradise Suites Hotel, which will give listeners online access and through YouTube.

The Village Development Committee’s chairperson Pa Ma Sowe Jobe acknowledged the quality services the radio is rendering to the community.

He said the radio station has also created job opportunities in the community.
