ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to research into how rural communities in Ghana are covered and represented by a Public broadcasting television station, Ghana Television (GTV). The study also sought to establish whether there exist a fair balance between the volume of news coverage given to elitist/urban news as opposed to news of, and about, rural communities in the year 2004. The researcher mainly used content analysis as the method of data collection and systematic random sampling was the sampling technique used. A total of 101 tapes, comprising 1353 news items constituted the total sample size for the study. The study showed that generally, GTV's evening news was biased towards urban or elitist based news as against news from rural areas. The study also revealed that the electioneering campaign of 2004 had an impact on the rate and level of coverage of rural news. Indeed, coverage of rural areas greatly increased in November 2004, which was the run - up to the December 2004 elections.
