CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The tendency, most of the time especially  in the developing countries, is for media practitioners to package their media contents well.  In doing this, they do not take into consideration their supposedly diverse audience.  This may be as a result of professional ignorance or perhaps taking the audience for granted.  But taking the viewer, listener or reader for granted today is ver costly on the part of the communicator.

In same vein, may be the level of our development still makes the media operators in each of the sectors not to care very much about the programme requirements  of the various audience for example, the programmes contents of some of our television stations do not take care of the heterogeneous viewing public.  This implies that each audience has specific reason  (s) for tuning into a particular programme in fact   their media expectations seem to be diverse as their   demographic and psychographic variables.
