Independent Nigerian broadcaster, Channels TV, has been awarded the "Best Station of The Year Award" for 2013 by The Federal Republic of Nigeria's Media Merit Award Trust.
This is the eighth time that Channels TV has been recognised by the Nigeria Media Merit Award Trust as the country's best television station. The Nigeria Media Merit Award Trust is a national platform that aims to build a progressive Nigerian society and serves as the foremost media excellence scheme within the county's media industry.
With a growing population of over 160 million people, the Nigerian television media market, including the Nigerian Diaspora, is said to have the potential to lead the transformation of sub-Saharan Africa's current analogue television industry into a digital content publishing economy worth tens of billions of dollars.
As such, in addition to investing in the right technology, the Nigerian media industry is effectively positioned to foster the television industry's growth across sub-Saharan Africa as the premium market leader in factual and lifestyle television, which enlightens through entertainment.
