Maputaland Community Radio107.6 FM has been a vital communication tool for the community since its inception in the early 2000s. The radio station serves as a platform for community development, providing programs that address the social and economic needs of the community.
Challenges Faced by the Community
Despite its importance, the community has faced challenges such as poor road infrastructure, telecommunication services, and cellular network services. The absence of a community newspaper has also contributed to high levels of illiteracy.
Perseverance through Challenges
Despite these challenges, Maputaland Community Radio107.6 FM has persevered and stood the test of time in a sector plagued by compliance and management issues. The radio station has received funding from the Media Development & Diversity Agency (MDDA), which has helped to ensure its continued success.
The unveiling of the state-of-the-art studios at Maputaland Community Radio107.6 FM is an exciting development for the community. The new studios will raise the quality of broadcasting and make it more attractive to potential partners. The new studios are a symbol of the hard work and determination of the people behind the radio station.
The community is invited to attend the unveiling of the new studios on May 5, 2023, at B8474 Nandi Street, Jozini, KwaZulu-Natal, from 9:00-13:00. The event promises to be a celebration of community development and the power of community media.
