Furthermore, the Authority plans to put in place a Broadcaster Award System to give recognition to outstanding broadcasters at a gala event. Those broadcasters will be the recipients of a number of trophies, plaques, monetary rewards, discount in broadcasting fees, etc.

GNBA urges non-compliant broadcasters to bring themselves in conformity with the law and to honour their obligations to the Authority. GNBA looks forward to broadcasters’ continued cooperation.
