LM Radio Awarded a Gauteng licence
LM Radio has been granted a Commercial Sound Broadcasting Licence to operate in
the Gauteng Primary market.
ICASA, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa has granted LM
Radio a licence to broadcast on the medium wave AM frequency in Gauteng. This one of several medium wave licences granted.
LM Radio which was voted the top music radio station in Mozambique in 2012 and in
2013 has operated a music radio station in the style of the original LM Radio since
December 2009. LM Radio broadcasts Happy music consisting of Adult Contemporary
and Gold format music with a proven track record.
The founder of LM Radio, Mr Chris Turner said “LM Radio provides a unique music
format which specifically targets the more mature audience aged 40 years and older.”
He went on to say “LM Radio has proven its format by serving an audience of over
150,000 listeners on FM in Mozambique and Lesotho and to South Africa on the
Internet and Free to Air satellite.
There has been an overwhelming demand for LM Radio to broadcast in South Africa. The granting of this licence by ICASA means that
LM Radio will be able to meet the needs of our target audience. We are proud to have
been voted the Top Radio radio station in Mozambique for the 2nd year running.”
LM Radio is expected to take to the air on 702 kHz in Gauteng late this year once the
transmitter facilities have been constructed by Sentech.
