Next Media Services’ flagship brand, NBS Television, launched a state-of-the-art studio on Tuesday, dubbed the Political Command Center, and further ready themselves to cover the upcoming general elections.
NBS TV, known for its impressive live coverage, recently moved from Media Plaza in Kamwokya to the Next Media Park in Naguru. The spacious park has allowed the media house to design a more spacious studio furnished with the latest art technology state.
Speaking at the launch, Next Media Services’ CEO, Kin Kariisa, thanked all the stakeholders, especially his staff, that have contributed to achieving this milestone. Kariisa went on to promise the best 360 coverage from NBS TV during the 2021 elections.
The upbeat mood was evident at Next Media, with most staff sharing the impressive studio photos on social media. Senior and controversial news anchor Samson Kasumba joked about making a work-out run while emphasizing how spacious the new studio is. Well, with Kasumba, we expect this to come to pass in the near future.
The studio is the first of its kind in Uganda. It was all praises for NBS from the online audience for the significant milestone to further entrench itself as Uganda’s media Political Command Center.
One of its social media fans, Deo Kasekende, posted that this was “a phase of journalistic renewal that was hard to reject.” Another fan commented that the Political Command Center’s launch should surely go a long way to consolidate NBS TV’s position at the top of the Ugandan TV grid, possibly spiraling them into the regional debate.
Well, the industry-standard has been set by NBS TV, the brand also possesses a cocktail of top media talent. Indeed, the sky is not the limit; what next for Next Media Services? UG Votes, UG waits.
