Ghana has had so many iconic broadcasters over the years and one of such is Earl Ankrah.
Earl joined the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) as a full time worker in 1995. He was very instrumental in Breakfast Television along with Beatrice Aidoo, Akushika Acquaye and later others came on board.

Jesse Jackson, President J.A Kuffour, then former Vice President John Mahama, Sean Connery, Danny Glover, Freddy Meiway, Lucky Dube, Osibisa, Youssor Ndour and many others.
He is now Acting Director, Research, Monitoring and Evaluation and Head of Public Affairs at the Fair Wages & Salaries Commission. It is a state institution responsible for negotiating salaries of public sector employees in Ghana and to ensure fair and transparent implementation of the government public service pay policy. He was pivotal as a spokesperson during implementation of the Single Spine Pay Policy. He was appointed in 2012 after working at GBC for years. He also works as a Senior News Editor at TheAfricanDream LLC.
