BBS Telefayina has responded to the Uganda Communication Commission’s directive and shifted it’s gossip show, ‘Roundabout’ from four pm to midnight.
Following several complaints from aggrieved persons particularly singer OS Suna on entertainment shows, UCC decided to intervene and directed all stations to air gossip only when children are sleeping.
According to UCC, the show hosts use inappropriate language, demeaning verbatim, and dress in skimoy outfits that would endager children’s moral values.
BBS TV, while responding to the directive announced that the Roundabout show will now air at 12:am only.
The stations management recently aired the show at midnight for the first time in days since UCC’s Directive was issued.
Their viewership numbers were however low compared to what they had before the directive was issued.
