LTA Urges Radio, TV Stations To Become Compliant

MONROVIA, January 19 (LINA) - The Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA) is urging radio and television stations to become compliant and operate legitimately.  

Licensing and Regulations Commissioner B. Anthony McCritty says the LTA is prepared to help institutions not in compliance to get regularized.

‘We are here to facilitate compliance and make it easy for station owners to stay operational,’ the Commissioner told a group of station operators recently. 

“We want to see a healthy, robust radio and television environment, however, we are running out of our limited frequency and there is a waiting list of new stations who want to comply,” a LTA release quoted McCritty as saying.   

The LTA released a list of twenty-five radio and four television stations. Those not on the list include entities which have not renewed their annual license fees despite continuous reminders and also excluded are stations who have never registered with the Ministry of Information or the LTA, but simply erected communication equipment and started broadcasting.

Several meetings were held since November 2013 urging stations not in compliance to get their issues resolved so their audiences would continue to enjoy their programming, the release said.  

LTA Chairperson Angelique Weeks said the LTA Board of Commissioners has decided to release the list of those in compliance now to send a message to the public to be forewarned who they engage for broadcast purposes because non- compliant stations may be shut down on short notice.

The national broadcaster, the Liberia Broadcasting System, is not subject to licensing and thus not listed, accoprding to the release quoted by the Liberia News Agency.
