A press conference on the matter of the closure of state owned CNMG and the resurrection of the TTT brand, will be held tomorrow. Communications Minister Maxie Cuffy broke the news of the company’s imminent closure, today.
The government will use the assets of CNMG and GISL to restart a new entity with completely local programming. The move comes following a 2015 consultation on state media. Two of the company’s three radio frequencies (Next 99.1FM and Talk City 91.1) will be closed. Sweet 100 will however remain a part of the new entity.
Today, the Communications Minister disclosed that staff will have to reapply for positions at TTT.
Recently, another media house, Guardian Media Limited retrenched over 30 workers.
