“After reading Franklin Cudjoe’s post on Captain Smart going off air due to pressure from some top government officials, I did my own checks from multiple source close to Angel Broadcasting Limited, and this is what I was told:
1. That Captain Smart has been taken off air. It’s unknown how long he will be away.
2. Management has not officially communicated this to the staff of the company.
3. There have been complaints and pressure from some top government officials who are aggrieved by Captain Smart’s utterances on his show.
4. Management of the station are concerned about how he sometimes attacks personalities, instead of staying on the issues he discusses. They yanked him off air after several warnings and the complaints/pressure from some aggrieved top officials.”
