Background of the Study

Broadcasting has been at forefront of many technological changes, mostly in digitalization and enhancement of existing technology. For example, digital technology now permits listeners to obtain traffic information and news, while listening to cassette, compact disc or radio station etc. (church Akpan, 2006).

We are all living in a changing world, and over the past many years, we have been conditioned to accept changes in the way we think and relate. Thus, communication between people of the world, which sounded utopist before is now becoming a reality in our very eyes giving practical meaning to marshal moitohan’s view of the world and a global village, interlinked by communication technologies, (Mc Lucan, 1964 P47).

Information and communication technologies (ICT) are electronic machines and devices. Their application have both computing and communication capabilities. They range from physical devices like digital cameras, scanners, mobile phone, etc. to cyber space the internet software teleconferencing, satellite etc. Their application is broad and cuts across all interpersonal and mass  communication, media, giving power, robustness and veracity to their operations and performances more than ninety years after the world’s first broadcasting station were pounded, radio is still the most persuasive, accessible, affordable and flexible mass media available in cities, urban towns and rural areas.

It is often the only mass medium available to majority of the people. The application of information and communication technologies into broadcasting especially radio broadcasting is therefore designed to boost and enhance qualities of broadcasting programmes.

I actually googled and saw about, copied the number and contacted them through WhatsApp to ask for the availability of the material and to my luck they have it. So there was a delay with the project due to the covid19 pandemic. I was really scared before making the payment cause I’ve been scammed twice, they attended so well to me and that made me trust the process and made the payment and provided them with proof, I got my material in less than 10minutes.


I received excellent customer support, and quickly. Thank you so much!
