Fiji Broadcasting Corporation announces an unaudited profit

The Fiji Broadcasting Corporation has announced an unaudited profit of just over 200-thousand US dollars, for the 2008 financial year.

Board chairman Yaminiasi Gaunavou says despite a conservative forecast and creative measures imposed last year, there was an amazing jump in earnings compared to the 2007 figures.

He said the unaudited profit for 2008 was the highest since corporatisation in 1998.

Mr Gaunavou says an aggressive approach to sales and branding was implemented to see more emphasis placed on local events and consolidating a profitable sales package.

The Fiji Times reports him as saying FBCL's increased community involvement in the form of two blood drives and a drive for the January flood victims were contributing factors.
