Radio Licences

posted 28 May 2011, 08:13 by Crispen Sachikonye
The Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe called Thursday for applications for commercial radio licenses in a move that could, if it represents a genuine bid to liberalize electronic media, end the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation's monopoly in the sector.

The licenses offered would run for 10 years and there is an application fee of $2500. There are also annual fees of $15,000 plus 1 percent of the gross annual turnover and $7500 in public consultation fees. Other miscellaneous fees will also be charged and the application deadline is June 30th.

We will participate in the process through our company AFRO Radio.
