Veteran broadcaster, Mike Eghan Snr has narrated how he left the banking sector to be a journalist.
According to the broadcaster, his father was an addict to BBC news, so he became fond of it.
Speaking in an interview with Paul Anomah Kordieh, on e.TV Ghana’s Live Chat With Paul, Mr Mike Eghan said;
“My father would listen to BBC news and sports commentary mainly cricket and contribute through letters to the point that he was even awarded a cricket book. So I became familiar with that”.
“I joined the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) in 1961. I voluntarily resigned from a Bank job with the Barclays Bank, which my Father, Ben Eghan secured for me, to pursue my long-life dream career. I worked with BBC, UK and returned to Ghana after a few years to work with GBC. I left to Volta River Authority where I secured a job as treatment Manager”.
Mike Eghan, 83, is a former Broadcaster with Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC).
