IMPACT OF RADIO IN THE CAMPAIGN FOR FAMILY PLANNING AND CHILD SPACING IN ENUGU METROPOLIS: A STUDY OF FRCN, ENUGU



ABSTRACT
This study was an effort to investigate the role of radio in the campaign for family planning and child spacing in Nigeria, with particular focus on Enugu state. The survey research method was used. The work was anchored on agenda-setting theory. A total of400 copes of questionnaires were distributed, and the gathered data were analyzed using percentage and frequency method. The findings of the study show that there are programmes designed to sensitize the people on the importance of family planning.

Again, the study showed that FRCN radio stations encounter problems such as language usage in programme packaging for rural people, and that adequate emphasis is not place on family planning sensitization on radio. The study therefore recommends as follows Government, NGOs and other well meaning individuals should encourage (through the radio) the adoption of effective family planning method the peculations of rural communities in Nigeria in terms of language, norms, factors should be considered in the design of family planning programmes on radio media; the need for further survey in other rural settings across Nigeria as a way of generating a more representative empirical statistics on the role of the radio in the provision of family planning information.
