The oil town of Takoradi will this weekend host the official relaunch of Empire 102.7 FM, owned by Africa’s fastest growing media group EIB Network.
The two-day event starts on Friday with a float through the principal streets of Sekondi-Takoradi, after which an official launch, and commissioning ceremony of the station’s new ultra-modern office will be held on Saturday. Located on the first floor of the Metro-Orient Building on the Liberation Road in Takoradi, the facility boasts an impressive modern day office design.
