ADOPTION OF ICT IN TELEVISION BROADCASTING IN NIGERIA: THE CHALLENGES AND THE WAY FORWARD
The study was sort to investigate the adoption of ICT in television broadcasting in Nigeria: the challenges and the way forward. Information Communication Technology (ICT) is a tool for facilitating the creation, storage, management and dissemination of information by electronic means. The impact of ICT on news reporting has led to a new enfranchisement for citizens. ICT has helped bridge the time lag between when an event takes place and the time it is made available to the public. The most significant impact of ICT on news is that it allows immediate feedback; the audience can respond to news stories instantly and immediately if they want to. The paper also assessed the concept the roles, and the impact and of ICT on television broadcasting. The paper concluded that this study uncovered some of the numerous benefits and challenges associated with the adoption of ICT in television broadcasting. This study concludes that ICT has created opportunities for widespread electronic and timely delivery of news. Furthermore, not only are there technology barriers that news organizations need to overcome to deliver news electronically, but there are also problems of employee attitudes toward new technologies and resistance to change. The implication of the use of ICTs in television might lead to an overall shrink in the need for human correspondents. Before ICT could be more effective in enhancing news processes in Nigeria, the constraints to news processing should not be neglected if broadcast industry must thrive or perhaps compete with its international counterpart. One of the recommendations made was that funds should be made available to upgrade ICT facilities in order to enhance its use in effective broadcasting.
