Veteran Guyanese broadcasters, CN Sharma and Bobby Vieira are likely to be among the six applicants to be granted license for new radio stations in the country.
Both have had applications on file for more than a decade.
News Source understands that the Guyana National Broadcasting Authority will soon announce the names of the six applicants that are to be granted radio license. Blackman and Sons Inc. and HGPTV are expected to also be among the new radio licensee.
A company in Essequibo and another from Linden are likely to round off the six new licensees.
According to sources close to the Government, a number of other companies are being considered for license, but many of them will be asked for clarity information on their applications.
Those companies could find themselves being granted licenses in the next round of considerations by the License committee of the Guyana National Broadcasting Authority.
The new licenses that will be issued will be the first set under the new government and updated broadcast legislation.
The GNBA has been issuing licenses to current broadcasters who have met all of the requirements and who have paid up their licensing fees.
When contacted on Thursday, the Chairman of the GNBA Board, Leslie Sobers, would only confirm that six new applicants will be granted license. He said he would only confirm the names of those applicants after first informing them and meeting with them.
