Owner’s Mismanagement may Force the Closure of Oyo Popular Radio Station
A popular radio station in Oyo State may be winding up to get out of broadcasting business soon. The station, which boasts as the first ‘three-language’ radio station and owned by a southwest activist seems not able to adapt to current economic realities.
According to an old member of staff who prefers anonymity, “the proprietor of the station has the habit of using and dumping his staff and not paying. He is also fond of taking actions to frustrate his staff out of the company just to avoid paying any outstanding salaries. I was owed several months salary and not paid till date. Anytime I remember the time I spent working in that organization, I always feel I invested and wasted the meaningful part of my life with an unworthy organization”.
It was also gathered that the station has been blacklisted by several clients (agencies and companies) due to transmission inconsistencies. The source revealed that the proprietor enjoys to tamper with transmission procedures of the station without notice, making himself the alpha and Omega of the station’s operations. This news outlet also got reliably informed that the proprietor runs the accounts at will without transparency, making it very difficult for any management team to work independently.
While some so called activists complain about leadership at the national level, we must also check their private leadership roles vis-a-vis what they claim to stand for. He who comes to equity must come with clean hands.
While this news outlet compiles other authentic proofs, we assure you of more updates soon.
