Veteran actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, popularly known as RMD has been chosen to host a radio show known as The Book I’m Reading on Radio Now.
The show is a 30-minute program that would serve as a weekly cross-platform show where Nigerians get to hear their idols passionately discuss and read from the books they love.
The program has its source of funding from the Sterling Bank.
The radio station issued a statement about the program and said “The Book I’m Reading”, #TBIR, is a weekly cross-platform show where Nigerians hear their idols passionately discuss and read from the books they love.
“The thirty-minute programme will air as a radio broadcast on Radio Now 95.3 FM, as well as on YouTube, and as a podcast.
“The first episode of the programme is slated to air at 4:15 pm on Friday, September 3rd, 2021.
“The debut episode sees Mr Mofe-Damijo in conversation with Ezra Olubi, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Paystack, the Nigerian financial technology startup that was recently acquired by Stripe for over 200 million dollars. Mr Olubi, who rarely grants interviews, speaks with RMD about the book he is currently reading.
“The goal of this programme is to encourage Nigerians to read more. We also seek to understand and communicate the impact reading has had on our accomplished guests. This is in line with one of Radio Now’s objectives, which is to equip Nigerians to be better informed and involved citizens.
“A segment of the show also tracks the history of banking, from ancient Babylonia to present-day Nigeria. This is informed by excerpts of A Brief History of Banking, a book by Sterling Bank.
“#TBIR will air every Friday at 4:15 pm on Radio Now 95.3 FM. And be available immediately after for on-demand listening as a podcast, and as a video on YouTube.”
