The Bong Communications Service, owner of Super Bongese FM104.9 has dedicated a new community radio station in Phebe, Suakoko Bong County.
Voice of Kpatawee 91.1 FM was dedicated on Saturday, April 30 in observance of Super Bongese seventeenth anniversary.
The Bong Communication Service was founded in 2005, following the establishment of its first community radio station, Super Bongese and broadcasted from an annex of the Phebe Paramedical Training Center (PTP), operated by the Lutheran Church in Liberia (LCL).
The station later moved to Gbarnga following the construction of its own broadcast house, where it currently broadcast.
BCS Chief Executive Officer, James Dorbor Sao explained that coming back to Suakoko and dedicate a new radio station at Phebe is a show of gratitude and remembering where the dream began.
Sao thanked the leadership of the Lutheran Church in Liberia, for its continuous support and interest in free press and information dissemination.
In addition to dedicating a new radio station, he said many young people who got trained at Super Bongese Radio are currently making headways on the national scenes both in the media and other sectors.
Samuel Kplaiwru, the manager of Super Bongese thanked community members and listeners of the station for their support.
He said it was through partnership with the community, listeners, and members of the business community that the station has survived and given birth to Voice of Kpatawee.
“It is through the contracts and partnerships we have with you that brought us thus far,” Kplaiwru said.
