The Rivers State Newspaper Corporation (RSNC), publisher of The Tide Newspaper, said it was seeking a partnership with the management of Multimesh Communication, owner of Family Love FM 97.7 and its counterpart Silverbird, which operates Rhythm 93.7 FM, to improve its services.
The company’s managing director, Chef Ernest Chinwo, said so in Port Harcourt yesterday when he led other members of the RSNC management on separate courtesy visits to the two radio stations.
Noting that media organizations have a lot in common, the chief executive said it has become necessary for them to work together for the good of the people.
According to him, the upcoming general elections in the state have made it imperative for the media to work together to enlighten the people on the new electoral law.
Chinwo said: The Tide, which is 51, is the only surviving state government-owned newspaper in both South-South and Southeast, noting that the newspaper also has extensive coverage of events. Across the country.
He said the Rivers State Newspaper Corporation also has a presence in various printing companies and stressed the need for both stations to include The Tide in their daily newspaper reviews.
At Love FM 97.7, Chief Chinwo praised the station for instilling high moral standards in society.
He said The Tide is ready to support both stations in terms of coverage of their activities and the like.
Previously, Commercial Manager of Port Harcourt Station, Silverbird, Miebaka Inyenengi, and Managing Director of Multimesh Communication, Ms Greg Okonkwo, thanked RSNC management for the visit.
They commended the company’s management for the continued existence of The Tide newspaper, despite the economic downturn in the country.
They also pledged to work with RSNC management, ensuring The Tide would be included in their newspaper review programs.
