Fiji Sun - - Sport - JUSTINE MANNAN SUVA Feed­back: justine.mannan@fi­

The Fiji Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion (FBC) are the of­fi­cial broad­cast­ers for the Fiji Rugby Awards night on De­cem­ber 16 at the Novo­tel Suva Lami Bay Con­ven­tion Cen­tre in Lami.

FBC chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said it is a great op­por­tu­nity for them to bring a pres­ti­gious night into the homes of many Fi­jians around the coun­try. “We are very pleased to be on board with this par­tic­u­lar event be­cause it is in sync with the drive and the be­lief of FBC in which is to reach out to the public as much as pos­si­ble,” SayedKhaiyum said.

“The whole phi­los­o­phy of our busi­ness is based on reach­ing out to the com­mu­nity and I am glad that this event is go­ing to be car­ried out in a sim­i­lar man­ner.

“It is a great op­por­tu­nity to vote and con­trib­ute to this won­der­ful event and we hope that this will carry on for many more years.

“On the night we will be pro­vid­ing coverage and there will also be a de­layed broad­cast of the night and this will be done post pro­duc­tion where we take out all the good bits and show it to the peo­ple of Fiji. “It makes sense be­cause FBC is the only tele­vi­sion you can see in ar­eas like Ba, Raki­raki, Tavua, Korovou and Tailevu so I am thank­ful that the FRU has de­cided to part­ner with us.

“If they didn’t then a lot of rugby fans would have missed out on this won­der­ful event.”

Their ra­dio sta­tions, in par­tic­u­lar Bula FM will cover the event to keep the peo­ple of Fiji up to date with what is hap­pen­ing. Fiji Rugby Union chair­man Com­man­der Fran­cis Kean wel­comed FBC on board and is ex­cited to work with them. “We want to wel­come FBC on board with the fam­ily of spon­sors as the of­fi­cial tele­vi­sion broad­caster and we look for­ward to work­ing with them in cre­at­ing a Fiji Rugby Awards night pro­gramme that will be re­mem­bered.”
