Phillip Nyakpo (Author & Communicator)

Phillip Nyakpo fell in love with broadcast journalism in 1996, in the newsroom of Channel 7 in Sydney, Australia.
After writing for the Ghanaian Chronicle, and later the Radio and TV Magazine in Accra, Phillip became one of the first employees of Skyy Power FM, the first private and commercial radio in Sekondi-Takoradi, the capital of Ghana’s Western Region.
He also worked as the Western Regional Correspondent for Joy FM, Ghana’s first private radio station.

For nearly ten years in Sekondi-Takoradi, Phillip was editor, reporter, news anchor and the top host for news and current affairs, until 2005, when he left for a stint with the BBC in London, England.

Phillip Nyakpo now lives in Perth, Western Australia with his family, a place he has called home for more than 15 years. 

He has written Absolute Radio, an inspiring African story with global footprints. The spellbinding true story is delicate, witty, eye-opening and wonderfully inspiring.
