Asaase Radio manager Jimmy Kutin celebrates 20 years in broadcasting


Exactly 20 years ago, one of the finest brains in broadcasting was unearthed in Cape Coast, Ghana.

For those experiencing a whiff of change in radio programming in Cape Coast through Asaase 100.3 MHz, Jimmy Kutin is one of the major brains behind the revolution.

For the past few weeks, he has injected some buoyancy into the radio terrain in the Central Region by parading the best talents for the radio station, since they started programmes in earnest.

Jimmy Kutin has risen through the ranks from being a DJ and a presenter, to a programmes manager and a business manager. He further climbed to the height of a manager of various radio stations in Cape Coast, Accra and Takoradi.

How Jimmy got into radio

Jimmy Kutin, a doyen of broadcasting in Ghana, started his radio journey on July 19th 2002, with Radio Valco, a campus-based radio station at the University of Cape Coast (UCC).

He told that when he started radio, Radio Valco was the best station in Cape Coast, even though it was a student-led effort.

“I had completed secondary school and was fast developing my DJing and MC skills with social groups in Cape Coast at the time. I got in touch initially with Eddie Ray (now at Kasapa FM) who put me in touch with other senior presenters at the station to see if I would be considered,” he said.

According to Jimmy, because of his relatively young age (he was still in his teens), nobody was ready to give him a chance.

“Eventually, Mr Daniel Dadson, the station manager at the time, gave me the opportunity to prove myself with a 2 am to 3 am hip-hop show on Tuesdays. The rest, they say, is history,” he added.
