Gambia Radio & Television Service
|Owner||Government of Gambia|
The Gambia Radio & Television Service is the national broadcaster of the West African state of the Gambia. Gambia Radio & Television Service currently broadcasts in English and native local languages.
In December 1995, GRTS was commissioned by the Gambian government which began test transmissions under the Gambia Telecommunications Company (Gamtel). In 1996, it adopted its own television channel. The Station operates as a public service station based on the tradition of Radio Gambia. The Station's programmes are mostly news, public service announcements, education, entertainment and religious related (Islam and Christianity only, mostly Islam and nothing on Traditional African religion).
In 2010, the Station was awarded the National Order of the Republic of the Gambia with the rank of "Commander" (CRG).
