The Group Chief Executive Officer of Media General, Beatrice Agyeman, has assured clients and stakeholders that the media conglomerate will build on the successes in order to remain stronger year after year.
She said this during the launch of the 25th anniversary celebration at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Accra on Tuesday, April 12.
She said: “I joined TV3 in 1997 and here am I today as the CEO, so thank you to TV3.
“We at Media General and TV3 are excited at how far we have come. Celebrating 25 years in broadcast excellence as the hallmark of TV3 is no mean an achievement.
“We have raised the odds and challenges and emerged stronger, more experienced and creative. Indeed, we have grown to become the best in the industry.”
Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah launched the 25th anniversary celebration also unveiled the anniversary logo.
In a short address during the launch of the anniversary, Mr Oppong Nkrumah, who is also lawmaker for Ofoase Ayirebi, said: “Building a business of this nature for twenty five years, I think you deserve a round of applause.”
He further recognized the impact of TV3 on the media industry in Ghana, saying, “Even in terms of the talents that today we find in the industry and how many of them have passed through your stables. In the entertainment field, I was just asking Francis Doku about one of your entertainment shows I watch and I was asking whether that was production or was real. But it shows how eclectic your production is even in the entertainment field, we congratulate you for that.
“The third thing I will want to mention on a day like this is, I know it is a day of celebration but it is also a day of caution, the next twenty five years are more important than the past twenty five years and over the next 25 years, one of the things you should pay attention are your risks.
“What are your risks you face as a business? In our industry, one of the risks that I think you should pay attention to is reputation risks. Reputation risk is the end product of what your staff as individuals or groups of staff or the corporate programming we churn out.”
