Ms Tonga, who could not disclose how much funds are required, stated that the national broadcaster was committed to improving the quality of both radio and television transmission in the country.
According to Mr Muntanga, there is poor reception in the morning from about 1100 hours to 1830 hours in the evenings. He attributed the poor reception to a small ZNBC transmitter at Senkobo which only covers 10 km.
Meanwhile, ZNBC is it preparing to move to digital before the year 2015. Ms Tonga said broadcasting institutions the world over were on alert for the migration to digital systems before the June 17, 2015 deadline set by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). She disclosed that the ZNBC would soon embark on a countrywide drive to educate the Zambian people on the effects of migrating to the digital system.
