1 min


Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Excellence in Broadcasting Network, Bola Ray, has spoken out about the lack of loyalty in the Ghanaian media landscape, which he has personally experienced during his time running EIB.

Just about a week ago, Berla Mundi left the network for TV3, and numerous other presenters have left the network during its relatively short span of existence.

Speaking during the 2019 iYes Conference, Bola Ray for the first time delved into why some of those departures occurred.

According to Bola Ray, after the network was hit with financial challenges, people who had flocked to him when things were rosy immediately started coming up with excuses to leave.

“In the month of August 2018, I had a lot of people walking away because it was difficult….. someone came to me and said: “My wife is insulting me because I have not been able to take money home for some months now.’ …….It got to a point that anybody who walks into my office, I ask: ‘Are you resigning,” Bola Ray revealed.

According to him, he learned during that time that when storms hit, people you thought were with you would just jump ship for their own self-interest.

Despite all these challenges, Bola Ray applauded the workers who have been with the network since inception till now.

“Out of 483 workers we started EIB with, we still have some great people out there making about 300 who are still with us and across the nation,” Bola Ray revealed.
