NCA Shuts Down Montie FM Over Licence Fee

Montie FM, a radio station sympathetic to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)  has  been shut down by the National Communications Authority over unpaid license fee.

The station, according to sources, went off the air around 3pm Wednesday evening after it persistently failed to heed to caution by the regulator to pay up its debt.The source further added that a sister station of Montie, Radio Gold, is also hugely indebted to the NCA and has been ordered to pay up or be shut down in a month’s  time. Both stations are owned by Network Broadcasting Company.

Montie FM became popular in the build up to the 2016 elections when some panelists who had appeared on a political show were jailed by the Supreme Court for threatening judges with death.
