Ace broadcaster and on-air personality, Kojo Dickson has revealed why he left Peace FM albeit subtly after being with the station for close to two decades.
In an interview on Restoration with host Stacey Amoateng, Kwadwo Dickson who now works with Angel FM and serves as the General Manager of the Accra-based radio station said something ‘pushed’ him to quit Peace FM, an indication that there was animosity somewhere.
“I spent 18 years with Peace FM. When I clocked 15, I was looking forward to a new challenge. Although I enjoyed newscasting, I needed some dynamics in my presentation so I was looking forward to a change,” he said in local dialect Asante Twi.
“I also went back to school to study communications and wished I were not repeating certain stuff. I had an enlightenment and wished it could be applied where I was but it wasn’t manifesting no matter how I directed my focus,” Kwadwo Dickson added.
“In my 18th year, something happened but I cannot disclose it. That is what pushed me. It was the peak; I had no option than to quit,” he said but issued a disclaimer that “leaving Peace FM had nothing to do with financial considerations”.
He said: “While at Peace FM, I set up small businesses, I built a recording studio for commercials. When I decided to leave, the intention was to focus on that enterprise and not venture into radio anymore. But along the line, I had interaction with the owner of Angel FM.”
Kwadwo Dickson has “no regrets leaving Peace FM and possibly will have no regrets” but is grateful to his former employers.
