The purpose of this study was to determine the service quality perceptions of the internal clients who use Radiopark Studios' facilities. This subject is regarded as important in that Radiopark Studios now competes with outside facilities. Internal clients can hire studio facilities and personnel from different production houses. Radiopark Studios should, therefore, improve its clients relationship. The aim was to find out whether there were gaps between the internal clients' service expectations and the services delivered by Radiopark Studios. Zeithaml, Parasuraman, and Berry (1990) Servqual analysis was used as the primary theory base. The researcher investigated the following sections: • Booking office, • Production assistants, • Radio block (studios), • Technicians, • Radio main control, • Security and reception, and • Marketing. The main findings were that there were gaps between the service received by Radiopark Studios internal clients and the service they would like to get. It also showed that Radiopark Studios internal clients were receiving inconsistent service in that some were satisfied with the service delivery whereas others were dissatisfied. Recommendations are made in this report on how to close the service gaps identified in the study.
