City of Johannesburg launches Joburg Pulse FM, an online radio station
The City of Johannesburg launched its long-awaited online radio station, Joburg Pulse FM at Ivory Park Emthonjeni Taxi Rank on April 15.
In an effort to bridge the digital divide, the city launched its own dynamic online radio station.
This powerful form of content aims to break down communication barriers by reaching more residents.
Lwando Mbelu, one of the radio presenters, said: “Now residents will not only communicate with the city on social media, but engage live and live. It will cover everything about the city of Joburg, from service delivery, to getting to know your city council better, and promoting small businesses. »
The radio station currently has two slots which include the morning show Get up eGoli between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. and afternoon drive Hello Jozi which airs from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Another enthusiastic radio presenter on the show, Jurgen van Lill, added: “Radio is good and very relevant as we move into the digital age, which is the radio of the fourth industrial revolution…. he has a way of reaching diverse people.
Lawrence Khoza, Advisor to MMC of Economic Development, spoke about the importance of the 120 Days of Accelerated Service Delivery and highlighted some of the achievements in service delivery, and how the City was creating opportunities that would empower youth.
Executive Mayor Geoff Makhubo said: “I am delighted that we have taken this step as Johannesburg by launching this online radio station as digital is the future. We are one of the first cities in Africa to have done this in order to communicate our messages and engage with our citizens. In terms of service delivery, we are setting a new standard and there will be reviews within these 120 days of each service to identify service delivery challenges and find solutions.
Makhubo also communicated with area residents about their service delivery issues. In Ward 79, city officials are helping repair a road as part of day three of 120 days of expedited service delivery.
They also traveled to Tembisa Mall to engage with the Region A business community. The objective of the session was to discuss strategies and interventions with entrepreneurs on how they might recover from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
