OverviewEdit

At the start of radio broadcasting, Asahi Broadcasting (ABC) provided significant support to KBC. Some of the national sponsored programs were already broadcast from Radio Kyushu (currently RKB Mainichi Broadcasting) in Fukuoka Prefecture, but ABC persuaded the sponsor that Fukuoka and Kurume are different. And broadcast on KBC radio. ABC was co-stepping with KBC in sponsorship.

From October 1, 2018, KBC's 65th anniversary and KBC TV broadcast and KBC's “Misetaka!” By illustrator Ryo Taniguchi, who worked on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics mascot character Appointed as a new PR character for the 65th anniversary of the start of radio broadcasting. Previously, "Kyoropaku" was also appointed as the 45th anniversary of the founding and the 40th anniversary of TV broadcasting and the 45th anniversary of radio broadcasting.

The TV coverage areas are Fukuoka and Saga. Until March 1990, when Nagasaki Culture Broadcasting opened, it was also reporting in Nagasaki Prefecture. It produces numerous programs for stations in Kyushu, Yamaguchi, and Okinawa. See Block programming for details.

Since personnel is being carried out on a company-wide scale, even if you join the company and become an announcer, there are few people who continue to be announcers until the retirement age and often change to other departments in the middle (* conversely, they come back from other departments and announcers) Some people become). There has been a trial on the transfer of the announcer to another department, and the decision that “transfer is legal” has been finalized. (Kyushu Asahi Broadcasting Incident, Supreme Court First Small Court Decision September 10, 1998)
