Delta TV is in news again after workers wrote a letter to the general manager telling him they are laying down their tools. Apparently, workers have not seen any payment for the last six months and yet they have been working.
This is not the first time Delta TV is having similar issues. However, it seems this is a problem that is eating it up. Due to such issues, some of the workers already left the station.
Kasuku has advised TV stations that haven’t yet made it to stop having so many programs. The moment a station has so many programs, it means it needs so many presenters.
This means expenditure on payment is going to be high and yet the station is still growing. As one who has been in the industry for long, Kasuku says there is no need of competing with big stations in the early stages.
He suggests that a starting station can have four major programs as they break out. This will give them time to grow and plan better while spending less on salaries because running a TV station is expensive.
Kasuku took the opportunity to urge TOP TV to pay their workers too before they reach the Delta TV level. He said he had spoken to Pastor Ssenyonga about it and promised to do something about it but the workers there haven’t been sorted apparently.
The competition among the TV stations is so high it has forced the small stations to engage in programs they can’t manage.
However, this has only affected workers who end up not receiving payment leaving them in misery. Perhaps these are some of the issues UCC should address as the regulator of these stations.
