12 February 2013, 11:04

Taraba - The Acting Governor of Taraba,  Garba Umar, has pledged to overhaul the state-owned media houses for effective coverage of the state.

He made the pledge when he met with Abdullahi Garba, the Chairman of state's Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) on Monday in Jalingo.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the two state-owned broadcast media outfits, Taraba Television and Taraba Broadcasting Service go on air for less than two hours a day.
