The Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS) has released its first report on the One US Dollar Campaign it launched about a month ago to raise funds for the state-owned broadcaster.
Delivering the report at the Ministry of Information regular Thursday press briefing, LBS Deputy Director-General for Rural Broadcasting and chairman of the campaign, Patrick Honnah revealed that the institution raised a total of L$250,500.00 and US$15,435.00.
He said funds from the campaign will be used to renovate the main studios, which got damaged during the civil conflict, expand LBS services to other parts of the country and improve media content, programming and imaging.
The LBS Deputy Director assured contributors and its Radio and TV audiences of improved services in programming and imaging at the State broadcaster.
In November, LBS launched its fundraising code named “The LBS dollar campaign” aimed at running the state broadcaster effectively after it realized a shortfall in the institution’s budge of over US$ 2 million for fiscal year 2013-2014.
