A total of 171 students from GH Media school were graduated last Saturday, October 10,2020 and charged to work hard to be the best in their chosen fields of work.

Corroborating the need to be innovative, the Chancellor of GH Schools, Dr. Kofi Osei Kusi underscored the media’s relevance by relying on the free movement of people to produce and consume contents which according to him, media personnel were striving to adapt to in the era of the pandemic.
He further recounted that most of the financially valuable broadcast contents such as live sports have been postponed leading to spending reallocation by advertisers and a subsequent drop in income for media companies and practitioners.
He urged the graduand to work hard to remain relevant in the media landscape.
