Broadcasting live from...

WhatsUpANC is now famous in the Free State! The two of us have just been interviewed about the blog on Free State community radio station, Motheo FM (88.5MHz), by Thembekile Mrototo,  a second-year journalism student who is working at the station while studying. Motheo FM has 329 000 listeners. 

Podcasts of the interview were then streamed to 65 of the 120 community radio stations in the country, reaching 7.8million listeners. Those who did not get the live stream were updated via telephonic conduct with the support of the Media Development Diversity Agency (MDDA).

This has increased interest in the blog with many youth enquiries coming into the station, according to Thembikile. 

Motheo FM is broadcasting live from the conference and streams podcasts to a host of other community radio stations.
