Our Vision

Our vision which to be a leading, development orientated radio station that is not only accessible but attractive to both public and private interests by promoting the needs of the community, has to take cognisance of the lifecycle of the community and the developmental needs of such a community in order to be articulated and executed well. One of the areas we’ve looked into to achieve this is our station format, and as such we have conceptualized it as thus;

Our Station Format

A positive voice that entertains, engages, informs and educates its listeners (young and old) in a manner that transforms their livelihood for the better, promoting pride, unity and a common vision towards sustainable development of the Buffalo City Metro.
