Brief History


The station started as a provincial Broadcasting Station in 1957 for relaying programmes from the defunct N.B.C in Kaduna and Lagos. At that time, it had a total of only one hour of broadcast of local programmes. Thus it was then seen just as a relaying station for most of its progammes from 5:30am to 11:00pm daily on the Medium Wave (MW).

In 1970, a Short Wave Transmitter (SW) was installed giving the station a more powerful transmitting Capacity, consequently the station was allowed to run more local programmes but had to relay Network News, Educational Programmes and other important National Programmes.

In April 1979, the Federal Military Government through Decree No 8 of 1979 abolished the former N.B.C Stations and established the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) with effect from April 1978, the same decree also handed over the former NBC stations to their host governments in all the then nineteen (19) states.

As a result of that, in 1980 the Board of Governors approved the change of name of the Corporation of Borno Radio Corporation (BRC).

In August 1983, the state government set-up a State Television Station known as Borno State Television (BSTV) to transmit on 1KW UHF transmitter.

The General Manager of the Corporation was then appointed as the Administrative Manager to oversee the take-off of the Television Station.
