A BRIEF HISTORY OF DELTA BROADCASTING SERVICE, WARRI
Delta Broadcasting Service,(DBS) came into being when the defunct Bendel State was split into Delta and Edo States on August 27, 1991 by former Military Head of State, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babaginda. The first Military Administrator of the state was Group Captain Luke Ochulor(retired), and by virtue of the state creation, Delta Broadcasting Service Warri emerged from the former Bendel Broadcasting Service, Benin City, which later became Edo Broadcasting Service(EBS). Before the birth of Delta Broadcasting Service, there were two transmitting substations of the old Bendel Broadcasting Service. These were Radio Bendel and Bendel Television, in Warri and Ubuluku respectively. Warri sub-station later became a full-fledged station three years after the creation of Delta State. The Commissioning of Delta Television, Edjeba Warri, by the first civilian Governor of the state, Olorogun Ovuodoroye Ibru( former President General, Urhobo Progress Union) on Tuesday 30th June 1992 gave rise to the first functional Radio Delta and Delta Television.
