GNBA to intensify Citizen Monitoring

The Guyana National Broadcasting Authority (GNBA) will be strengthening its efforts in the not too distant future, to include citizens in the monitoring of broadcast content from both local radio and television stations through its Citizen Monitoring Pilot Programme, launched in November 2019.

The GNBA has an active Monitoring Department that tracks its various licensed Broadcasters (television, radio, and cable) and monitors their broadcasts to ensure compliance. With assistance from fellow citizens, the GNBA will be better positioned to ensure Broadcasters are held to the standards set forth by the Broadcasting Act of 2011, the Amendments of 2017, and the Broadcasting Guidelines.

The primary aim of this collaborative effort is to help curtail and prevent the broadcast of obscene language, nudity, distasteful images, and language that is distasteful or incites violence or racism.

Therefore, the Authority is seeking volunteers to take up the role of citizen-media monitors from different age groups, communities, and even organizations countrywide.

All complaints will be treated with the same seriousness as those reported by the GNBA’s active Monitoring Department.

Volunteers from across the country are urged to come on board with the programme.

The Citizen Monitoring Programme forms part of the Authority's mandate to regulate, monitor, protect, improve and maintain the highest broadcasting standards in Guyana.

Persons interested in volunteering can access the application form on GNBA’s website, www.gnba.gov.gy.
