Growth and more growth for Fiji Broadcasting Corporation.

FBC TV celebrated its seventh birthday yesterday at Suva’s Holiday Inn in style with their coporate clients.

FBC Chief Executive, Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said: “Our business has been growing at a rapid rate especially FBC TV.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said being the number one television station within seven years of operation and taking the great risk to move their news coverage from 6pm to 7pm, was an amazing achievement.

“That goes to show that everyone has been working as a team at FBC.”

FBC also launched its revamped website and was live from yesterday.

 

FBC revamp

“We are very excited and our clients are extremely excited too.    “We have totally revamped our website because there is a growing demand by our website users to  make it look and feel more responsive, and also make it user friendly for mobile devices.

“This project has taken us about a year to work on and we have been working very hard.

“It will enhance the experience for all our users. It also more importantly give our clients, customers and partners lots of opportunities to market their brands.”

It features a comprehensive enhanced capabilities such as video and audio features and also having an up-to-date sports scoreboard, business and market commodities, weather with international news.

Visitors to the website can also access their six radio station pages and listen to their favorite station online.

Expansion plans

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum also said they have plans to construct new space at FBC House on Gladstone Road as part of their future plans.

“Because of the growth of FBC we now find ourselves where we have run out of physical space.

“What we are doing is, we are embarking on a major project which we have been working on for about a year and a half.

“We are quite confident that construction will start in February next year, in about two months’ time whereby we will increase the capacity in the office space at FBC House.

“There will be additions to the building in front and at the back of the building.

“We are also building a new studio, it will complement the business houses for any workshops.

“It will have a sitting capacity of 100 people.

 

Risks

“We are also taking into consideration disaster management issues because we are close to the sea, and outside our building there is flooding at times.

“We are a modern country growing at a rapid pace and we need these facilities to be able to grow better and to be able to provide more to the public.”
