This work looks at the deregulation in the Nigerian economic sector and more especially in the broadcasting media sub-sector considering its introduction from the Ibrahim Babangida administration to the present day civilian government. It considers the extent to which deregulation has attracted globalization which in turn has affected cultural practices and behaviors in Nigeria, it has also considered how the proliferation radio and TV stations have led to indecision by viewers who now find it difficult in choosing a particular station for a long time.
