Ghanaian broadcaster receives honour

Mr. David Ghartey-Tagoe is the founder of Radio Peace, one of the first community radio stations in Ghana, which Farm Radio International is proud to count among its broadcasting partners. Earlier this month he was honoured by the State of Ghana with the title: “Member of the Order of the Volta.” He received his award from the President, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills. We send our hearty congratulations.

Mr. Ghartey-Tagoe has had a long and distinguished career in radio, television, and as a university professor. In 1965 he was the first television newscaster in Ghana to use the autocue. Through his pioneering spirit and hard work he rose to the position of Deputy Director General of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation. Radio Peace (based in the town of Winneba) has received several awards over the years, including Best Rural Radio Station in Ghana, in 2009.
