Nigeria’s first campus digital radio station

November 18 05:06 2016 Print This Article

The campus radio of the University of Jos derives its name from the initials of the words that describe what it says it does well: informing, communicating to, and educating the students who constitute majority of its listeners.

The building housing the 96.1 Ice FM, situated at the University of Jos, is a modest one; but one would not believe the waves the station makes in entertaining and informing students of the university and the general public could come from there.

About 90 per cent of the students, lecturers and university workers listen to the radio station on their smartphones and personal computers.

The station, which became the first digitalised campus radio in Nigeria, was inaugurated in 2011 by the then Vice Chancellor, UNIJOS, Prof.SonniTyoden.
