The Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has granted an operating license to the University of Lagos (UNILAG) to operate a television station on campus.
According to the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, the development would allow the institution redefine campus-based broadcasting while also grooming exemplary talents.
“We are keen to redefine campus-based broadcasting with this initiative while giving our students a rewarding experience and grooming an exemplary crop of Mass Communication students,” he said.
Ogundipe further stated that: “Our profound gratitude goes to the Presidency for approving the issuance of a television license to the University, making us the first university in Nigeria to have a licensed campus television station.
“We thank the Presidential Media team as well as the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation, NBC, for their efforts in making this a reality.”
