As social media and technology use grows and becomes inevitable in the lives of millions of Ghanaians and billions of users around the world, 97.3 Citi FM has designed a show to highlight and discuss the trending issues on social media and the tech world, the first by any radio station in Ghana.
Citi Trendz, the new weekly show provides viewers with unique insights about the week’s social media trends with expert commentary by the various guests that are featured on the show.
The show offers the technology, media and marketing industry, valuable insights to inform their campaigns and projects. It also ensures listeners are updated on the trending national issues of the week in a precise and concise manner.
