Citi FM was awarded due to its efforts at promoting tourism through its flagship programme, the Heritage Caravan.
Speaking at the event, Chief Executive Officer of the Akwasi Agyemang urged other media houses to prioritize the promotion of tourism.
Second tourism award for 2017
Earlier in February, the GTA adjudged Citi FM as the Greater Accra Region’s Tourism-oriented Radio Station of the Year for 2017 at the Greater Accra Regional Tourism Awards.
Citi FM was specifically awarded because of its efforts towards the growth of the tourism sector through its flagship road trip, the Heritage Caravan.
Citi FM was also honoured as the best Tourism Oriented Media organization for the Radio category at the 2017 Eastern Regional Tourism Awards Ceremony.
Citi FM’s Heritage Caravan
This award comes ahead of the 4th edition of Citi FM’s exciting tourism initiative dubbed the Heritage Caravan, which will come off from 2nd to 9th March 2019.
The Heritage Caravan will see patrons of the trip tour all ten regions of Ghana in seven days visiting scenic sites in the country.
In 2017 and 2018, patrons had a delightful experience visiting places such as the Mole National Park, the Military Museum in Kumasi, the Slave Memorial at Assin Manso, the crocodile pond at Paga among others.
