Steadman Group Ghana Limited, a media monitoring and research company has dissociated itself from a newspaper report that ranked Metro TV as the best station among the rest in the country.
The Daily Graphic Newspaper carried the report headlined 'Metro tops them all' in its March 13th edition sourcing Steadman International based in the US.
According to the report Metro TV has over 40 percent share of the Ghanaian TV market.
But the managers of GTV, TV3 and TV Africa have challenged the credibility of the report.
In a rejoinder, Mr. Kwaw Ansah of TV Africa, Yaw Owusu Addo of GTV and Syed Ahmad Zaidi of TV3 said the headline was misleading and the story was factually inaccurate.
The Country Manager of Steadman Ghana, Gordon Grant Biaku told Joy News Steadman International was headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya and was not based in the US.
According to Mr. Biaku his office has not released any such information ranking television stations in the country because such a study has not been done.
He maintained that what the group has done regularly was to publish the opinions of business leaders in countries the group operates and this it does in its Business Confidence Index reports.
