The newly licenced Kariba based radio station,will hold its radio auditions for presenters, newscasters and producers next week Wednesday at Pagomo Grill in Kariba. The station is headed by Maxton Kanhema and owned by ZimPapers who are also owners of the Herald, star FM, Kwayedza among other publications and will broadcast in English, Shona and Tonga.
Nyaminyami FM was granted a broadcasting licence by the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe in year 2015 and is set to occupy the Kariba media space which was predominantly covered by Patsaka Nyaminyami Community Radio Iniative an affiliate of Zimbabwe Association of Communty Radio Stations.The radio initiative managed to groom news reader Obert Siamilandu and reporter Edmore Mbonda who have all become house hold names in Kariba after undergoing massive radio trainings for years.
Speaking to this reporter, James Mabhandi,one of the local leaders, praised ZimPapers for bringing the radio in town and encouraged the management to recruit more talent from the resort town. "We are happy that the station is going to occupy a media space where Patsaka Community Radio Station groomed more radio personalities, therefore, we expect more local faces at the station." Another Kariba resident who was interviewed by this reporter had this to say, "Kariba is a multilingual community, therefore, if Nyaminyami FM is to steal hearts of many, it should broadcast in local languages as the case with Kariba FM in Siavonga Zambia which caters for both Tonga and English listeners."
Nyaminyami FM will mainly broadcast issues that are centred on Kariba and its sorroundings and will be stationed at Kariba Heights where the studios will be installed soon.
