Channels TV, the award-winning independent Nigerian broadcaster, is delighted to announce that The Federal Republic of Nigeria's Media Merit Award Trust has recently awarded it the prestigious "Best Station of The Year Award" for 2013.

The award, which was announced on Saturday, December 7, 2013, at a gala event night held at the Ikogosi Warm Spring Resort in the Ekiti State of Nigeria, is the eighth time that Channels TV has been recognised by the Nigeria Media Merit Award Trust as the country's best television station.

The Nigeria Media Merit Award Trust is a national platform that aims to build a progressive Nigerian society and serves as the foremost media excellence scheme within the county's media industry.

Channels TV is one of Nigeria's 13 independent, free-to-air broadcasters and it previously won the award in 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2004 as well as 2008, 2010, 2012 & 2013. 

Mr. John Momoh, executive chairman of Channels TV,  said, "We are absolutely delighted that we have won this award again. Despite having won it many times, the excitement never diminishes. We strive to provide a true, news-led independent voice in Nigeria and we are very happy that this has been recognised again. We are committed to continuing to serve Nigeria and its people with balanced news and entertainment."

With a growing population of over 160 million people, the Nigerian television media market, including the Nigerian Diaspora, has the potential to lead the transformation of sub-Sahran Africa's current analogue television industry into a digital content publishing economy worth tens of billions of dollars.

As such, in addition to investing in the right technology, the Nigerian media industry is effectively positioned to foster the television industry's growth across sub-Saharan Africa as the premium market leader in factual and lifestyle television, which enlightens through entertainment.

Channels TV, in cooperation with its peers in the Nigerian media industry, will continue to support the long-term growth of a strong and dynamic, commercially lucrative, digital content publishing industry spanning all mgenres of television including quality news and current affairs programming.
