IBA board secretary Josephine Mapoma told a Press briefing in Lusaka yesterday that Prime TV was being suspended along with Valley FM Radio of Nyimba in Eastern Province for unprofessional conduct.
Ms Mapoma also announced the revocation of licences held by Ngoma Radio in Luanshya on the Copperbelt and Kafue Radio.
