In a recent Facebook post, former TV3 journalist and mental health advocate Abena Korkor has expressed her dissatisfaction with how TV3 exploited and abandoned her.
When she devoted everything to the legendary TV station and was in the early stages of beginning a new chapter in her expanding life in fulfillment of a childhood desire, the media personality and mental health advocate said she was mistreated by the large media network.
I left TV3 Ghana with so much hurt in my heart . It even sparked a relapse. They knew all about me and I thought I had found a company that understands and accepts me for who I am.
Owning a network like OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has always been my dream since 12. I was elated when Apefa called me and offered my the role as a presenter on the Ladies Circle.
I got more excited when Beatrice Agyemang said she was a fan. I could boast with pride TV3 is an advanced establishment that accepted people living with mental health problems.
I have been waiting to study Global Mental Health and that would have gotten into my personal statement for admission. I was totally wrong. I was excused of my duty with no formal letter or explanation.
Mr. Francis Doku said I didn’t deserve one because we didn’t have a contract. How foolish I was ! Young graduates, don’t work for anyone without a legal binding contract. People will use and damp you when you need them most. I was later given a flimsy excuse that it was because of my lingerie pictures.
