The New Publisher newspaper has rendered an ‘unconditional apology’ to Angel FM’s senior broadcast journalist, Naa Atswei Oduro, over false report it carried about her some three years ago.
The said report, which appeared in the August 24, 2020 edition of the newspaper claimed the broadcaster with over 25 years of practice, defrauded her former employer in excess of GH¢500,000.
This, according to the paper, came as a result of a contract she had entered with Class Media Group, operators of Accra FM where she worked but she ditched them and joined Angel Broadcasting Network, Accra.
In an apology, the New Publisher, however, said its attention “…been drawn to the fact that the contents of the said news item are not true.”
It continued that “…the subject matter is a pending court case between the lady and her employers.”
