Broadcasting Commission to get new $95m home
The Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica (BCJ) is to get a new and permanent home which will cost taxpayers about $95 million.
Minister with responsibility for Information, Senator Sandrea Falconer, says the Cabinet has approved the purchase of lands with a two-storey building at 9 Central Avenue in Kingston.
She says the $15.4 million paid yearly for renting offices in New Kingston is unsustainable and the Commission needs more space to do its work.
The National Land Agency reportedly valued the new property at $98 million in January.
The BCJ is the government agency which regulates broadcast media.
