      • What is the future of Radio in South Africa?
        • Based on the rapid increase in consumption of internet-based products, online / internet radio is the future.
        • Terrestrial (FM/AM) Radio, albeit easy for consumers to reach such as in their car etc, is not the best option moving forward:
          • Heavy infrastructure costs for masts on mountain tops and microwave links
          • High costs of alternate electricity supply in event of loadshedding
          • Limited range per mast, thus the need for multiple masts:
            • FM transmission: No further than visible horizon (50 – 60 km)
            • AM transmission: A lot further but bad audio quality.
          • Physical barriers such as large building and mountains break reception
        • Internet radio is accessible anywhere in the world – thus also attracts international listeners and not only local.
        • Internet Radio does not only have to be live, but can also have content available for on demand consumption.
        • More cars are being built with high end entertainment systems with sim slot thus making your car an internet hot spot.
      • Why is our focus on live events and live outside broadcasts?
        • We believe that radio should be more than just audio but a visual spectacle as well.
        • Our (WDZ Media) focus for the last 4-5 years has been outdoor events and creating awesome vibes. We have now added a live radio station into the package as well.
