Broadcast Journalist with Bolgatanga-based Dreamz FM, Sarah Teni Babohima, has recounted with fondness her journey into her journalism career.

Speaking with Humul Khrusum Tahiru on A1 Radio’s Equal Voice program recently, she explained that her journey started with basic news reading during her senior high school days at the Navrongo Senior High School.

“When I got to Senior High School, there was this club called the Literacy Club where they read news every Monday. The majority of the students were in the final year,” she said.

Ms. Babohima recounted that despite her attempts to read the news, her seniors were hesitant, doubting her capability. Despite their initial reluctance, her constant pleas were eventually heeded, and she was allowed to read.

“That was how I started my journalism, and then I went to the Ghana Institute of Journalism. From SHS, I just thought, well, since I am good at reading, why not go to GIJ instead of any other place. I had family saying go here or go there, but I decided to go and further my journalism,” she said.

Ms. Babohima explained that her journey through GIJ was a challenging one because she had to combine her studies with running her mother’s business in Bolga. The work-school combination meant that she had to travel every Friday to Accra for classes and return Sunday evening.

“When I got there, my colleagues would already be there, and we would go for studies, but I had a bigger task of having to travel,” she said.

Upon successful graduation, Ms. Babohima has been practicing with Dreamz FM as a news anchor after her move from Yem Radio in 2020.

While in school, Ms. Babohima explored her love for French and, at one point, contemplated visiting the Institute of Languages to take the study of the language more seriously.

When asked whether she had any regrets pursuing journalism, the news anchor stated that she had none.

Dreamz FM’s News Anchor Teni Sarah Babohima was crowned an Icon in Broadcasting in Northern Ghana in May 2023.

The award scheme, dubbed Women in Broadcasting Award, was initiated by AfriTech Hub, a media, marketing, and technology organization based in the Northern Regional Capital, Tamale.

Ms. Babohima is also a known philanthropist who has donated hundreds of sanitary pads to girls in schools across the Upper East Region.
