ELBC’s Bong County correspondent completes construction of modern media center in central Liberia ￼ – FrontPageAfrica
GBARNGA, Bong County – Dozens of congratulations continue to pour in from the media community and beyond following the completion of a modern media center in Gbarnga, Bong County, by Papa Morris.
Papa Morris is the Upper Bong County correspondent for public radio station ELBC.
Attractively colored orange and gold, the building contains 10 offices, a newsroom, a conference room, a broadcast studio, a waiting room for studio guests, two bathrooms as well as back and front porches.
It’s obvious that the state-run authority ELBC hasn’t been shy about congratulating its own Papa Morris saying, “We at LBS are hugely proud of all your accomplishments.”
The project, according to reports, costs over US$67,000 and is the third largest media house in the country after LBS and Truth FM and the largest outside Monrovia.
It can be recalled that Papa Morris started the construction of the building in 2019 a little more than two years after the opening of the station (Kwatekeh FM Radio).
In 2019, Kwatekeh FM Radio was awarded by the Press Union of Liberia as the best radio station in Central Liberia.
Journalist Morris, who has spent 22 years as a journalist, is one of LBS’s most notable correspondents and one of Bong County’s most popular personalities.
As Media Officer in Bong, Papa Morris inspired and continues to inspire young people to venture into the profession of journalism in Liberia.
Meanwhile, the official inauguration of the new broadcast facility located in Gbarnga Bong County is expected to take place at the end of April 2022.
