The history of ATL FM which is now a unit within the Campus Broadcasting Services (CBS) of University of Cape cannot be written without the contribution of Mr. Kofi Totobi Quakyi.
Mr. Quakyi is credited with providing the very first transmitter for the station which began as a nucleus for the exchange of messages among students of the Atlantic Hall of UCC.
After the naming of the main studio within the CBS after him, Mr. Totobi Quakyi on Thursday paid a visit to the station. He told ATL FM News’ Akosua Akyeabea Sackey that as an alumnus of UCC, providing the first transmitter for ATL FM was his means of giving back to the university that made him.
After a tour of the facility, he was impressed with the growth the station has seen over the years and commended management of the station for the vision to grow ATL FM into the broadcast centre it has become. The CBS also serves as a training ground and laboratory for students of communication within the university.
