Akoma 87.9 FM, the fastest growing FM station in the Ashanti region and has since its inauguration penetrated the heart of radio listeners across the region with quality event and programme is four years.

Just within four years of existence, the fastest growing radio station has become a force to reckon with when it comes to the radio market in the Ashanti region.

The radio station’s compelling News and Current Affairs Programming leads in breaking news stories and community engagements.

Critical issues of interest are carried in the News, ‘Akoma Kaseɛbɔ’, with stories beautifully delivered by Andrews Akwaboah (The Legend), Ama Serwaa and Abena Adepa.

Duty bearers are further engaged on ‘Ghanakoma, the development-focused Morning Show which has over the past four years attracted discerning listeners and astute guests to engage the Host, Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin.

During the last segment of the celebrations, when the cake was cut to officially mark the anniversary, the Manager of the Station, Faustina Derry, pointed out that the station prioritises the development needs of their listener and therefore focuses attention on issues that ensure the socio-economic wellbeing of the individual and the community.

She assured the listeners of the station of their commitment and interest to introduce more events to serve them better.

According to her, ” I’m still yet to come to terms with the fact that we are just four years old in the market but our achievements are remarkable than others who took over more than five years ago.”

Skeptical as many were, it was almost impossible for a new station to penetrate the Ashanti region market.

However, with hardwork and dedication, the station has climbed the audience share market and it’s now the fastest growing radio station in the Ashanti region.

In just four years since Akoma FM, a subsidiary of Media General, was opened, it has become a force to reckon with, with compelling news analysis, content, community-driven content and approach.

From the Radio Station’s flagship show GhanAkoma, in the morning, to midday news and other programmes were all broadcasted from outside the studios with a live band as a side attraction to keep listeners in good mood.

Some of our usual panel members like Alhaji Sani Snr., founding member of the NDC in the Ashanti region, Kwasi Kyei, a former Ashanti regional Communications Director of the NPP, Mr. Ofori Agyemang (King Zuba), a former MCE for Obuasi municipality and a member of the Ashanti regional NDC Communication Team were all part of the event.

Akoma FM’s ‘Akoma Mu Nsɛm’, the afternoon talk show, hosted by Maa Akos and her team, has served as a platform to solve a number of social and relationship challenges.

Sports with pepe Suarez, Abusuapanin Sammy Acheampong, Raphael Sarkodie, Stevoo, Danso and others got pundits and sports lovers tuned in weekday and weekend.

Akoma Mmere Show with Tony Best is the toast of mid morning entertainment, driving commuters to work and easing the stress of a hard day’s work.

The Personality Chat segment has almost all the great entertainment personalities passing through.

Other programmes include Ghanakoma evening political show hosted by JB and Odo Ntentan talk show hosted by Yaa Nicky on every Friday and Saturday evenings.

Nights and weekends are never dull on Akoma FM as in-house DJ, Obonke, serves the best of music to entertain and keep listerners on their toes. Nana Akohene Mensah and Nana Billa Kantanka are delight to listen with the best of reggae, Hi-Life and true oldies.

For the past four years, Akoma FM has changed the radio landscape in the region.

As part of our corporate social responsibility, we partnered our listeners to collect over 120 pints of blood for the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital Blood Bank.

“The coming years would be more exciting for our listeners and audience,” said Miss Derry.

“We indeed have the listener at heart in planning and formatting our programmes; so as we grow, we want to grow with them to impact positively on on society,” she stated.
