Update: OSRC Shut After Fire Incident

Fire operators were on ground to salvage the situation.


The management of Ondo State Radiovison Corporation (OSRC) Media Group has reacted to the fire incident at the administrative section of the headquarters of the Ondo state government owned broadcast media, OSRC.

According to a statement by the Chairman and CEO of the media group, Kunle Adebayo, no human casualty was recorded.

He said the operational facilities including transmitters and studio equipment at our three services, OSRC TV, ORANGE FM and ALALAYE FM which now operate from the same premises are intact.

He added that the State and Federal Fire services were duly invited and they responded promptly, and put out the fire at the administrative section before it could do further damage.

Adebayo said the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has been briefed.

The Corporation’s authority has therefore directed a temporary shut down of our transmission operation to ensure that the premises is secure while also assessing the situation.

The statement added that “At the moment there are no final conclusions about the cause of the development but interim assessment indicates a power surge.

“OSRC wishes to appreciate all who have sent words of solidarity over the incident, particularly our esteemed viewers, listeners and clients.

“We wish to assure the public that we will be back on air very soon”.
