Versatile Broadcast journalist, Prince Minkah is back to doing full-time television, after he said goodbye to the listeners of Dwaboase on Power 97.9 FM.
After serving breakfast the controversial way on Dwaboase, the tough-talking broadcaster parted ways with Power FM on Thursday as he prepared to head to TV XYZ, where he will be hosting the rebranded Morning Update now known as ‘Tonton Sansan’ (The gong gong).
The new programme which starts on Monday, August 2, 2021, will be run in Akan and will focus on the everyday issues Ghanaians are grappling with.
Prince who is affectionately called Kwame Minkah has promised to put Ghanaians at the centre of his work, as he returns to his first love– doing television.
From Monday to Friday every week, Tonton Sansan comes your way from 6:30 to 9 am.
Though he has come under a lot of attacks for frequently quitting jobs as evidenced in the number of radio and TV stations he has worked with, Minkah has been very stable at XYZ Broadcasting LTD.
News of him leaving Power FM has been met with mixed reactions, with a lot of his fans curious to know where he moves next. Obviously, his fans can now heave a sigh of relief, as he is still clinging to the XYZ brand.
Under the XYZ Broadcasting LTD are Power FM, Radio XYZ, Myxyzonline.com , XYZ Digital, Ashanti Power, Volta Power and TV XYZ.
