River Gee Yearns For LBS, UNMIL Radios

FISH TOWN, March 2 (LINA) – Residents of River Gee County say they are concerned that the signals of the national broadcaster, Liberia Broadcasting System, and UNMIL radios are not being received in the county. 

They told the Liberia News Agency that this situation has deprived them of vital information that could help shape their thoughts and decision-making.

River Gee Superintendent Daniel G. Johnson confirmed the situation and regretted that it has created ‘information isolation’ for the people of the county.

The only radio operating in the county is Radio Gee, which broadcasts in the Frequency Modulation (FM) band.

However, Radio Gee Manager, George Kayee, told LINA that the signal of LBS was totally absent in the county, while that of UNMIL Radio is drowned when Radio Gee is broadcasting, making UNMIL Radio a sort of non-present.

Radio Gee broadcasts from 5 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and then from 6:00 p.m. to midnight daily.

“The UNMIL Radio thing is technical and we are told that we need to fine tune our frequency to allow reception of the UNMIL Radio,” said Kayee.

He said Radio Gee airs mainly local community content and covers parts of neighboring counties Sinoe, Grand Kru and Maryland, as well as Cote d’Ivoire.

Meanwhile, LINA also learned in Harper, the provincial capital of Maryland County, that LBS signal is not reaching the city and other parts of the county.

Residents are, however, receiving the UNMIL Radio but their desire is to monitor the national broadcaster, they told LINA.

They have called on government to ensure the LBS is reaching all the Liberian people.
