CHAPTER ONE

1.1 INTRODUCTION

A determining factor for the selection of Management or Leadership style of any media organisation is ownership and control. It is therefore not surprising that the Management Styles of some media organisations in Nigeria differ from one another, depending on the ownership pattern of the respective media organisations.

The Management Style of every media organisation influences its operations; such management style determines the content and focus of News and Programmes, as well as guide the conduct of personnel.

Nagarta Radio is a private Radio station established in 2004 with the mandate of keeping the public, particularly those in the ern part of Nigeria informed about occurrences within and outside the country.

The News and programmes s were parts of the five s that made up of the radio station, each of which has specified duties and responsibilities.

The News section is responsible for the production of four bulletins daily, both in English and Hausa languages. The bulletins were produced at hours’ interval; 6am, 1pm, 3:30pm, and 6pm for English, while 6:30am, 12pm, 4:30pm and 8pm for the Hausa version of the News.

Reporters, translators and typists in this discharge their duties in line with the directives of an Editor who is more like a representative the Management.

The programmes is another unit that is responsible for the production of all programmes with the exception of News and Affairs Programmes. There are about sixty-six programmes currently being produced and aired, most of which are handled by producers and presenters in this .

Programmes producers are duty bound to make the content of their programmes to suit the test of the Head of programme, who is also like a representative of the Management.

1.7 THEORETICAL

There are numerous Management or Leadership philosophies, but the most appropriate one to explain or ascertain the impact of Management Style of Nagarta Radio on reporters and programmes producers is Authoritarian or Autocratic leadership style.

1.8 LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

     The researcher faced the constraints of later return of questionnaires and inadequate understanding of some questions in it by some respondents during the research.

THE AUTHORITARIAN APPROACH

Kurt Lewin (1939) in a simple term explained the authoritarian theory of leadership, as a style used when leaders tell their employees what they want ‘done’ and how they want it ‘accomplished’ without getting the advice of their followers.

According to Kurt Lwewin, some Managers tend to think of this style as a vehicle for yelling, using demeaning language, and leading by threats and abusing their powers.

The authoritarian leadership approach is characterized by leaders who make decision alone, demand strict compliance to their orders and dictate each step taken; future steps were uncertain to a large degree. The leader may not necessarily be hostile, but is aloof from participation in work and commonly offers personal praise and criticism for the work done.
