Ghana's power crisis has led to the reduction of production hours by most companies. The load shedding between household and industries are so alarming and frustrating hence the expected output by most industries are not met.

The stated owned Ghana broadcasting  corporation is no exception as the Director-General of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, MajorAlbert B. Don-Chebe (Rtd.), in an interview with an Accra-based Joy FM confirmed that
the state broadcaster  with its various radio stations across the ten regions of Ghana will minimize its expenses and maximize the satisfaction of its target audience and penetrate through the fierce competition in the Ghanaian Television and radio broadcasting by cutting off its transmission hours to stay in business. 

He continued that audience and viewers who patronize their services will still receive quality and authentic news and entertainment information.

Major Albert B. Don-Chebe (Rtd.) took the opportunity to debunk claims by some members of the workers union that staff will be laid off.

He continued that the decision by the board to curtail expenses will affect the 24 hourly broadcast on the news and sports channels available on digital platforms.

He added that the radio stations which hitherto transmitted 24 hours on daily basis will now end transmission at 12:00am and resume at 4:00am.
