The Broadcasting Commission Of Jamaica

The Broadcasting Commission is a statutory body which was established in 1986 to monitor the electronic media in Jamaica.

They have recently tightened the rules on dancehall and reggae music which was being played on local radio stations and television.

Since February of 2009 no songs which contain the term "Daggering" which is another world for hardcore sex and "Bleeps" which are edited songs to conceal the original content cannot be played on radios or televisions stations.

This has led to some radio Disc Jocks getting suspended and even fired.

The Commission’s role is to monitor and regulate these industries, also balancing the interests of the consumers and implementing the public policy and law.

The Commission basically decide who gets a license and also make recommendions to the Minister of Information.

Before the clamp down, if you were listening to some of the local radios stations it was as if you were at a party or dancehall session.

Now most of the artistes have to be doing two versions of their song if the song contains contents not fit for airplay.

One version is done for the street and the clean version for radio.
