Broadcasting cooperation has come a long way. This organisat6ion has been in existence even before the independence. During the time of colonial masters, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe returned to Nigeria from Gold- Cost, now Ghana and he then founded the West African Pilot, which he edited. This mass media helps to criticize the evils of colonialism and highlighted the necessity of granting independence to Nigeria.

Broadcasting co-operation in general performs the same type of work in their respective organizations. The ways by which these cooperation’s especially government owned ones can be made to perform their broadcasting function better than they are at present is the issue at stake.
