THE CHALLENGES OF DIGITIZATION OF BROADCASTING MEDIA IN NIGERIA AND THE WAY FORWARD

ABSTRACT
Digitization is the current trend in broadcasting, both in Nigeria and the world over. The International Telecommunication Union, ITU, set 2015 for the entire broadcasting stations in the world to go digital. Nigeria set 2012 for broadcast stations in the country to be digitized. This work aimed at x-raying the challenges of switching from analogue to digital technology. In the process, the benefits of digitization were outlined and afterwards weighed against the challenges of actualization of the digitization. Consequently, suggestions were made to avert, or reduce the impact of the discovered challenges. It was concluded that a careful implementation of the established policies in relation to the suggested remedies, will make the digitization process a success in Nigeria.
