South Africa Tasks Campus Radio Stations To Explore Digital Platform
2 November 2018
Communications Deputy Minister Pinky Kekana has encouraged campus radio stations to expand into the digital platform and continue to churn out dynamic and informative content.
Kekana made the call during a Campus Media Workshop and networking session held at the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) headquarters in Hatfield, Tshwane, on Monday.
The workshop was hosted by the GCIS with an aim of fostering, nurturing and strengthening a relationship between government and campus radio stations.
Kekana said campus stations are not only platforms to engage with students, but they also play a vital role in communities as the majority of campus stations reach listeners in the communities surrounding the university premises.
The Deputy Minister said campus stations are a tool for social cohesion, a budding ground for talent and a critical medium of information sharing.
