The host of the Citi Breakfast Show, Bernard Koku Avle, has been named the 2017 Journalist of the Year at the 23rd edition of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) Awards.

Bernard Avle, who is also the host of Point of View on Citi TV was among nearly 36 selected journalists in the country who received various awards on the night. Before receiving the personal award, the Citi Breakfast Show was named the Radio Morning Show of the year 2017 at the event.

Bernard in an interview with Citi TV after picking the award, said “I’m happy because this is a recognition of just what I have done, but what Citi stands for. This radio station has given me the opportunity for the past 14 years to prove myself. So if being one of the leading presenters on Citi, I win this award, it’s a Citi award. So I’m grateful to Sammens and the team for the support, encouragement and guidance and for Team Citi for pushing me.”

For his prize, he is expected to receive a cash prize, a three bedroom house and an SUV. Having worked at Citi for fourteen years from a young age, he thanked the CEO of the company Samuel Atta Mensah for giving him the opportunity to serve.

Mr. Avle has been working as a journalist with Citi FM/TV for the past 14 years holds a Bachelors of Arts in Economics with distinction and a Chevening Scholar with an MBA in Marketing from the Warwick Business School in the UK.
