Ghanaian broadcast journalist Blessed Godsbrain Smart, popularly celebrated as Captain Smart, has resigned from Angel FM.
The “fearless” and outspoken media personality announced his resignation in a simple message on his social media pages in the late hours of Friday, May 28, 2021.
Smart, who was suspended on May 6 and was expected to resume work on June 4, 2021, stated that he had bowed out permanently.
The former morning show host on Angel FM was taken off air by the CEO of Angel Broadcasting Network (ABN), Dr Kwaku Oteng, for allegedly maligning President Akufo-Addo, his Vice Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Alan Kyeremateng and the IGP.
According to Captain Smart, he was informed that his blunt criticism on radio is making the government “unpopular”, hence management’s decision to suspend him for one month.
Amid the suspension, he managed to secure a license to start operating his own television station, Smart TV.
He used the same platform to reiterate his resignation after breaking the news first on social media.
