The radio channels of Radio Television Brunei (RTB) provides variety and act as a platform to express and develop broadcasting skills for talented and creative youth said Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Minister of Finance and Economy II Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah yesterday.

This was a response to a statement by LegCo member Yang Berhormat Awang Naim bin Haji Kamis’ suggestion that RTB should cut radio channels from five to two to minimise cost.

“Each radio channels has its own unique themes and focus and caters to different audiences,”  said the minister, adding that “most radio presenters are only working part time with other jobs or occupations on the side. So on the matter of saving cost, limiting radio stations does not have a major impact on the country’s spending.”
