NCA approves licences of Radio Gold, Radio XYZ

The National Communication Authority (NCA) has approved the licenses of Radio Gold and Radio XYZ for operation.

These stations form part of the 131 others who have been authorized to operate subject to some conditions spelt out by the NCA board.

This was the outcome of the Authority’s Governing Board meeting held on October 11, 2021.

In a statement, the Authority indicated that the beneficiaries include “new applications from entities whose FM radio stations were closed down after the 2017 FM Audit as well as existing stations which applied for renewal of their expired FM Radio broadcasting authorisations.”

In May 2019, the NCA shut down Radio Gold 90.5 FM and Radio XYZ 93.1 FM based in Accra.
