FM stations in Accra

FM stations play a significant role in informing, educating, and enlightening everyday public life. It also performs entertainment roles through music, drama, talk shows, live sports, and other soft angles that appeal to such societies.

In Ghana, Radio broadcasting still reigns supreme over other forms of mass media channels. Radio is a powerful medium for celebrating humanity in all its diversity and constitutes a platform for democratic discourse. At the global level, radio remains the most widely consumed medium. This unique ability to reach out to the widest audience means radio can shape a society’s experience of diversity, and stand as an arena for all voices to speak out, be represented, and be heard.

Besides this, radio helps listeners feel less isolated and more connected to their community. In times of emergency and disaster, radio broadcasting is one of the most powerful and effective ways of delivering early warnings. Timely, relevant, and practical information supports effective response measures and saves lives. For people directly affected, it comes as a vital form of humanitarian assistance. As we have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, radio has kept people connected and entertained, ensured continuity in learning, helped fight misinformation, and disseminated critical health information.

The popularity of FM radio grew in the 1950s and 1960s, as the FCC opened up more channels to broadcasters and FM sets became cheaper and more readily available. Car companies introduced FM car radios in 1963. In 1964, the FCC ordered that FM stations stop simulcasting and create original programming for FM broadcasting.

The National Communications Authority (NCA), has given frequency authorizations to 684 FM Broadcasting Stations in Ghana. Out of the total number of authorized FM Broadcasting Stations, 489 stations are currently operational as of Fourth Quarter, 2021.
