NAN Starts TV News Production

Ima Niboro

The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, said it has begun production of television news and documentaries in order to enhance the content of televisions stations both in and out of the country, particularly with regards to government activities across the three tiers of government.

This was announced by Ima Niboro, managing director of NAN, who spoke at a meeting of the agency’s stakeholders.

According to Niboro, the production will cover virtually every sector, both public and private, and will be distributed to every parts of the country to enlighten the people, especially those in the remotest parts, on activities of government.



    “The NAN TV news clips will cover events and happenings in all sectors, including politics, agriculture, aviation, defence/security, the economy, education, the judiciary, tourism and sports, as well as health and gender,” Niboro said.

    “Other areas are oil and gas, entertainment, stock exchange data reports, the National and State Houses of Assembly and the Presidency,” he stated.

    With dwindling revenue hitting hard on media organisations, this latest development is expected to help significantly reduce cost of production for television stations, as NAN, established 39 years ago, has hundreds of reporters in every part of the country and reportedly services more than 90 per cent of media organisations in Nigeria by providing about 50 per cent of their daily local content.

    The managing director also explained that the agency’s multimedia department is being transformed and upgraded to ensure that productions meet international standard.
