The host of Lord 107.1 fm Morning Show and News Reporter for Peace Fm, Mr. Kwame Kontor Boateng, has emerged as the Western North Best Radio Reporter of the Year.
A dream that began at the reception of Lord FM, a radio station in Sefwi Bekwai, in 2013, was realised with the winning of the prize in Ghanaian journalism at the 2021 Western North Media Festival and Personality Awards held at Monnic Star Hotel, Bibiani, last Saturday.
Speaking with Kwame Kontor Boateng, he thanked the Almighty God and his listeners who supported him financially, spiritually and physically to win the award.
