Nigerian broadcaster, Yemi Sonde, has been named as one of the broadcasters that will attend the 8th Biennial Conference of African Broadcasters (Africast 2010), slated for Thursday, 21 October at Sheraton Hotels, Abuja.

The Director-General of National Broadcasting Commission, Mr. Yomi Bolarinwa, stated that the conference is a platform for deep examination, reflection and discussion by professionals, academics, policy makers, manufacturers, distributors and vendors on broadcast issues, particularly as they relate to the African environment and African market.
