A new broadcast station,Impact , IATV, has launched in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
IATV, is a sister company of Ibadan-based Impact Business Radio and Impact Business School
The Executive Vice-Chairman of Impact Group, Mr. Owolabi Oladejo, said that the new station would focus mainly on issues relating to economy, businesses and investments.
Beyond education and entertainment, he said that the broadcast media should impact positively on the people’s lives by dishing out information that will promote good policies and harmony in the society.
Oladejo said, “Until now, Nigeria did not have a broadcast medium that is devoted to economic development and business, as well as financial and investment information. This inspired the establishment of Impact Business Radio and now the TV. Electronic media has very great potential to impact people’s lives. Thanks to its widespread availability and reach to all strata of the society. We promise to make a difference in the lives of our people. It is particularly effective in providing life-transforming information to people living in poverty or promote good policies and harmony in the society, which we will religiously pursue”.
IATV is owned by Metropolitan Broadcasting Services Limited, the operators of Impact Business Radio (IBR 92.5FM).
The station, which is located at Kolapo Isola Estate area, Akobo, Ibadan started transmission some months ago on Channel 181 on StarTimes bouquet with its coverage reach in Southwestern states.
