“FAD FM and TV belongs to the people, not politicians and Government. We will continue to be objective, that doesn’t mean we won’t do business, we are open to supporting as many as possible.”
That is the words of Mr. Fidelis Duker, CEO FAD Group in an interaction with selected online media outfits at the station office Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
Duker who was briefing the online journalists on how the journey has been as it is set to mark its two years anniversary (September 1, 2019) reiterated that his platform’s focus is creating avenue for discussion and giving people a voice.
Duker was in company of his management team – Mr. Idem Ita (Double I) Acting Head of Station, Mr. David Agabi Head of News and Current Affairs and Mrs. Temitope Duker Executive Director Marketing.
According to him, “We haven’t broken even yet but we are not at a loose and we are not regretting. There’s healthy competition among private radio stations in the State.” He went on to reveal that “Our TV will commence full operation before the year runs out, it will be on Star Times and Go TV.”
Lending their voice separately, the Acting Head of State, Head of News and Current Affairs and Executive Director Marketing maintained that FAD has done well in expanding radio reach in the State.
They also asserted that the station will remain objective in its contents.
