The station commands an active audience of over three million in Somalia and an estimated 15million through the satellite channel. Due to our extended coverage and balanced news and programming, we are the most preferred Somali TV channel.
Our programming includes News and current affairs, Drama, Music, Business features, Political debates, Religious programmes and media awareness mainly focusing on humanitarian aspects.
HCTV is more popular in Somalia than its main competitors, claiming the largest and better equipped electronic news gathering team (ENG), Outside Broadcasting unit, contemporary media facilities and skilled staff. We are excellently networked across Somalia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya and the UK.
We are what we are because of the dedicated professionals determined to push beyond limits in quest for quality programming and audience satisfaction. HCTV has a solid partnership with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in programme exchange and capacity building. We are the only station in the region receiving direct feed of programmes from the BBC.
Our media experience has earned us an immeasurable experience with the Somali community. When we tell stories of desperation, conflict and abject penury, we have the experience firsthand. This has since prompted us to start our sister humanitarian organization called THE HORN FOUNDATION.
The HORN FOUNDATION which was started in 2010, provides humanitarian services to the people and improving livelihood.
Through the foundation, we can now engage with other None Governmental Organizations partners to help communities and provide various services including civic education, community mobilization and skills training.
Our vision: Adhere to journalistic values of honesty, courage, fairness, balance, independence, creativity and diversity.
Mission: Provide quality, educative, informative and entertaining programmes to our esteemed audiences and clients.
Values: Impartiality, Honesty and Ethical. We pride in excellence through professionalism. Together with you, we form a formidable team.
The Horn Cable Television and the HORN FOUNDATION are keen to engage with likeminded partners for the service of our people.
