QTV is the first private TV station of Gambia will now join the state broadcaster, Gambia Radio and Television Services (GRTS) as the only channels. The launch of the channel was done by the Gambian president Adama Barrow and his Sierra Leonean counterpart Ernest Bai Koroma.
President Barrow said, “The government is part of the initiative undertaken and we are equally appreciative of your firm commitment to discharge your cooperate social responsibility as expected. The road to development is a long one therefore; we need all hands on deck.”
