This website can however confirm that management has quickly acquired new ultra-modern equipment and all is set for normal programming to begin from tomorrow Monday 27th March 2023.
The Bantama-based radio and TV stations went up in flames on Saturday, March 18, 2020 with several pieces of radio equipment worth millions of cedis were burnt in a fire outbreak.
The incident, which occurred Saturday dawn razed all electrical appliances, including consoles in the two main studios of the station.

Ghanaian actress and Television Personality, Nana Ama McBrown has for the very first time revealed that she was deported from the United States of America in 2001.
Nana Ama McBrown was unveiled earlier today as the new host of Onua TV’s “Maakye” morning show, making her shift to Media General from UTV official.
Speaking with Captain Smart after her welcome ceremony, the mother of one revealed that she was deported back home in 2001 after her arrival in the US.
“Captain, January is a month I don’t like at all because things really don’t go as expected for me. I’ve never said this anywhere before but today I’ll say it to inspire somebody. My uncle returned from the US and met me as a footballer who had returned from playing at Kwadaso (a suburb of Kumasi). I went to play table tennis after that so when my uncle saw me, he promised to take me abroad. Truthfully I was in America in January but to put it short, I was deported,” she disclosed.
Barely two months after leaving Kumasi-based Fox FM, Kwaku Kyeremateng Nkansah (affectionately known as KK) is making his return to radio with Abusua FM, a subsidiary of the EIB Network based in Kumasi.
The political show host joins his former compatriot at Fox FM, Ebenezer Yaw Jonah ‘Osempakani’ at the Danyame-based station as host of the station’s flagship new political talkshow dubbed ‘Eboboba‘ airing from Monday and Friday between 1pm-3pm.
KK started his media journey with Obourba FM in Nkawkaw. He later moved to Radio Mercury in Kumasi where he worked for several years handling the mid-morning show then subsequently to OTEC FM in Kumasi as a political show host.
He later joined Fox FM where he hosted the morning show as well as several political shows for close to a decade.
Sports journalist Daniel Koranteng has joined the Multimedia Group.
Having left Omni Media in January after seven years, the broadcaster is the latest addition to the Joy Sports team, where he expects his craft to be nurtured and honed some more.
He is keen to bring his keen analytical skill and straight-talking style across the city from Adabraka to Kokomlemle.
“I had a lovely and fulfilling time at Citi FM/TV, and I feel ready for the next step,” Koranteng says.
As a Hearts of Oak and Manchester United fan, he is probably one of the coolest and relatable characters in Ghanaian sports broadcasting today. He is also known for his withering tongue, reserved only for anti-Phobians, trolls of the Red Devils, and a certain tennis superstar.
Most of all, perhaps, is the phrase he is known by – ‘Oh Chale!’ – which caught on as a consequence of his humorous way of teasing rivals and self-deprecation.
“I’m honoured to join such a talented group, and together, we will continue to produce nothing short of the best sports content for our audiences.”
Daniel’s peculiar alter ego, ‘The Oracle’, appears anytime sporting predictions are required, making him a must-listen for those who favour the punting circles.
“We are delighted to have persuaded Mr. Koranteng to join our project. He brings an extra edge to the team, and is definitely a favourite of the audiences we look to hook to the Joy brand,” says Gary Al-Smith, Team Lead for Sports, Joy Brands (Joy FM, Luv FM, Joy News, Joy Prime, Hitz FM and Myjoyonline).
The proud alumni of Achimota School and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is also an unrepentant fan of Novak Djokovic in particular, and tennis in general, as well as athletics.
In a first for Ghanaian radio, Koranteng will be “initiated” – just as is done for football players as they are unveiled at new clubs – on Joy FM in a special, not-to-be-missed radio show on Friday, 10th March at 1:15pm.
The show will be on radio on Joy 99.7 FM, streamed on this website as well as on Twitter Spaces.
Motivation for the young talent comes from DJ Khaled’s global hit, ‘God Did!’, frequently telling his spirit: “You either win with us, or you watch us win. God did!”
