Pure FM is set to compete in the Twi-speaking, mass market demographic and will cover programmes such as politics, sports , business, entertainment, motivation etc., located around the Babayara Sports Stadium.
Information available to MEDIAFILLASGH..com indicates that radio listeners in the Garden city should expect that Pure FM will soon take a full flight in terms of content/programmes and also, to capture in high quality the ambience of where the magic is currently happening. Pure FM promises to become an industry leader, powered by its host of great presenters to be acquired.
