CHAPTER ONE
1.0   INTRODUCTION
1.1   BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
        Electronic media are media that use electronics or electro mechanical energy for the end-user (audience) to access the content. This is in contrast to static media (mainly print media), which today are most often created electronically, but don’t require electronics to be accessed by the end–user in the printed form. The primary electronic media sources familiar to the general public are better known as video recording, audio recordings, multimedia presentations and online content.
However, electronic media may be in either Analog or Digital format. Any equipment used in the electronic communication process (e.g. Television, Radio, Telephone, Desktop Computer) may also be considered electronic media.
        Electronic media are ubiquitous in most of the developed world. As of 2005, there are reports of satellite receivers being present in some of the most remote and inaccessible regions of china.

This make electronic media (Radio) to be more effective and efficient media in rural development.
However, for any meaningful development to take place in rural area, the rural communities need to be properly mobilized in order to create the awareness that is basic for appreciation and participation in any development process.

BACKGROUND TO BROADCASTING IN NIGERIA

The establishment of broadcasting in Nigeria was the result of the determination of the British Colonial authorities to link the colonies with the “mother country” such a link was expected to serve the dual purpose of providing a powerful propaganda machinery for the British and the wider world. A committee was set up to consider and recommend what steps should be taken to accelerate the provision of broadcasting services in the colonial empire...
