Ghana profile - Media
Ghana enjoys media freedom and the press and broadcasters operate without significant restrictions.
The private press is lively, and often carries criticism of the government. Lively phone-in shows are staple fare on many radio stations.
Scores of private FM radio stations crowd the dial. Most of them are chasing a limited amount of advertising revenue.
State-run Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) runs national TV and radio networks.
The BBC broadcasts on 101.3 FM in Accra, and on 104.7 FM from Sekondi-Takoradi, the capital of Western Region.
By 2016, 8 million Ghanaians were using the internet, around 28% of the population (Internetlivestats.com). Mobile phones are widely used for online access.
