Silapho Ukhoyo!! DSTV841

If you don’t
know what time it is, you’re clearly on the wrong side of the track. Zibonele
FM has launched its DSTV bouquet audio channel 841, It has taken the station
over three years working on getting DSTV to give them a platform, with hardwork
and resources put in, well done to the team that worked side by side with me to
make this possible said –the CEO Mr Mawande Jara.

The station
is just over 24 years with its humbling beginnings of starting from a shipping
container with volunteers and now with over 50 staff members including on air

Today has
been a historical celebration as all of South Africa was celebrating with us
including our supporting Radio stations that include Vukani FM, Mdantsane FM,
Nkqubela FM and Radio Grahamstown for calling in and sharing the excitement
with their listeners, The DSTV launch didn’t end there but we also received calls
from the likes of the renowned Gospel artist Thobekile,  Dumi Mkokstad, Lisakhanya Pepe from SABC who
were listening on our live DSTV launch.

From exactly
after 10:00am after we went live on DSTV our Chairperson of the board shared
positive remarks about expanding our reach and how Presenters have to now pull
their socks and present their shows according to our regulations and having
mentioned that the station is still a community radio station and will always accommodate
our local followers as our licence mandates us to do –Said Mr Vellem, Board

The channel
is up and running and we wish everyone who cannot find the 98.2 frequency to
listen live on channel audio 841
