About us

TV just got exciting...

We bring you compliments from the staff and management of Diaspora Network Television (DNT), a wholly Ghanaian-owned satellite free-to-air station based in East Legon, Accra. DNT offers credible, unbiased and accurate news reporting, refreshing entertainment/sports programming and updates from the diaspora community.

Diaspora Network Television (DNT) is a continent-wide, satellite free-to-air television channel located in Accra, Ghana highlighting news and events from Ghanaians/Africans in the diaspora while also serving as the unique reference point of Ghanaians/Africans abroad for relevant news and events happening in Ghana and the rest of Africa.

Our Reach and Following

We are accessible on the MultiTv platform and are currently reaching audiences throughout Africa based upon feedback we are receiving from several countries.

We’re in talks with prospective partner stations in other countries in our quest to build the first television network representing Africa and her Diaspora. For our overseas audience, we have launched a mobile app to facilitate around the clock viewing of our programs.

Our mission statement

To broadcast programs and organize events with the aim of fostering mutual understanding between Ghana and her diaspora for the purpose of collaborating more for national development. Our success in resonating with the larger African diaspora community has prompted us to expand our focus to cover the entire African diaspora earlier than we originally planned to

Vision

A fully leveraged diaspora community for nation building

This growing network has positioned us to play the catalyst role in forming what could become the television network that Africa desperately needs. The Americans have CNN to propagate their vision. The British have always had BBC to do same. Now the Arabs have al Jazeera telling their own story. Africa has no such organization, and unfortunately no one appears committed to such a mission. With the popularity of DNT among the African diaspora and viewers within the continent, there is a real potential of capturing that news network vacuum that currently exists.
We have a plan to do so and we have begun discussions with other stations on the continent to form loose partnership of content sharing. We are also in discussions with media organizations in the United States such as Pacifica Radio Network. And we will not stop there.

Our web news portal can be accessed via www.dntghana.com and we are also active on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube all @dntghana. We stream our programs live on the internet via our website and we are currently launching a mobile App on both the Andriod and Apple platforms that would enable our global viewers to view our programs on the go.

Our studios comprise a state-of-the-art Production and Master Control Room (PCR/MCR) and two fully equipped soundproof studios including a Green Room that facilitates our flexible Tricaster system. We also have highly equipped editing and graphics department, a versatile newsroom supported by a talented production team, and a savvy and experienced leadership team comprising CEO Jermaine Nkrumah, Station Manager Yaw Sakyi-Afari, and Operations Manager Samuel Owusu Asare.

And we recently acquired the technology that will enable our global correspondents numbering almost 20 to stream their reports Live into our system and for us to broadcast Live. Our first successful tests of this live broadcast system enabled us to stream an interview between CEO Jermaine Nkrumah (Accra) and Dr. Aricana Chihombori Quao (Washington DC), and then between Jermaine Nkrumah (Houston, Texas) and Hon Michael Osei Mensah (Paris, France), and Paa Kwesi Sam, President of the Ghana National Council of Chicago in Chicago.

Thus far, the response has been nothing short of phenomenal. Our website analytics show fast-growing traffic, our social media pages are buzzing with activities with our Facebook page eclipsing 3,000 likes in less than two months. In fact, so large is our continent-wide audience that we have launched four WhatsApp platforms namely DNT Ghana, DNT Nigeria, DNT The Gambia, and DNT Africa.

The concept of highlighting news and events from Ghanaians/Africans in the diaspora while also serving as the unique reference point of Ghanaians/Africans abroad for relevant news and events happening in Ghana and the rest of Africa bears such a high resonance that we have had little trouble recruiting correspondents across the globe who cover events within their environs or send us news items that corresponds with DNT’s focus. Here they are and where they represent us:
