The Nigeria Broadcasting Awards, TNBA, seeks to recognise and celebrate broadcasters like professionals in many other industries and sectors.

TNBA is the brainchild of Mr. John Ugbe, Chairman, Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria (BON) who, as part of his campaign promises, stated the need for the recognition of broadcast professionals

TNBA is aimed elevating broadcasting standards by motivating broadcasters to strive harder and excel more.

TNBA, first of its kind in the history of Nigerian broadcasting, is conceived as the gold standard in Nigerian broadcasting and will be held annually

The inaugural edition, which will be a hugely glamorous event, is billed for early November in Abuja, and is open to current professionals working in both BON member stations and those working with stations that are not members of BON

TNBA will also recognise retired broadcasters, who distinguished themselves in their active days and those, who have made significant contributions towards raising professional standards.
