Today the world celebrates the international Radio Day. World Radio Day is an international day celebrated on 13 February each year. The Day was decided by UNESCO on 3 November 2011 during its 36th conference. In Zimbabwe radio has for years played a fundamental role in informing, educating and entertaining the populace. earGROUND would like to pay tribute and appreciation to some of these names whose voices we greatly love and loved. Sadly some of them are now deceased but their voices still resonate today.
The Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (BAZ) has today started a public hearing for the licensing of 6 new private Free-to-Air National Commercial Television stations.
The digital media disruption is here and here to stay. In essence, the future is here and we are living it. Where is Zimbabwe is all of this?
The year 2018 was the year that the underdogs came to the party and delivered in the music front. The big dogs had the carpet pulled from under their feet without them realizing. The usual main actors did not realize that the script had been flipped and they somehow continued reading from the wrong script only to realize at the end when none gave the usual cheer. Trevor Mawaka takes us through.
