BTV Staff Recieves A Shock After Turning Out To Work
Staff members of BTV which manages channel 2 got a shock this morning when they turned up for work and the building and operations were closed off with the station owner announcing that he was putting BTV out. BTV is a company owned by the Brutal Tracks studios and Swansea communications and for close to a year the station has been managing the programming at channel 2.
According to the owner of channel 2 Godfrey Washington, BTV which prides itself as “a we TV” was breaching many parts of the agreement. He said repeated efforts to get the concerns looked at were treated with arrogance by the BTV managers, leaving him to wonder “a who TV” it really is.
He provided the media with a laundry list of several violations including the content of some of the programming. He said he has been written to by both the ethnic relations commission and the advisory committee on broadcasting about some of the content. Add that to some money owed and Washington said he had had enough.
But enough may not have been too much since by mid afternoon, all seemed well with the owner and BTV management. The channel returned to its regular programming after settling matters with the station owner and holder of the broadcast license.
Operations manager at BTV Mondale Smith told Capitol News that all of the concerns were addressed and the two sides have reached an agreement.
GWTV channel two had been in previous management agreements with a number of groups and organizations including the Adventist church and a private city school. For now all seems well in the studios of the TV station.
