ZiFM Stereo was officially launched yesterday in Harare. From business people, church leaders, musicians to ordinary people, they all came to witness history in the making, as the second privately owned radio station in Zimbabwe blazed the airwaves at midday.
Operating under the tag line “My Station Your Station”, ZiFM Stereo boasts some of the freshest Zimbabwean talent.
Starting off with one of its youthful presenters Tony Friday and co-host Evangelista Mwatse, the station broadcasts in Harare on 106.4 band and 106.7 band in Bulawayo.
Other presenters include the likes of Hosea “The Hitman” Singende, Kimble Rodgers, Themba Mkanda, Morris Touch, Tonderai Katsande, Tinopona Katsande while musicians Plaxedes Wenyika, Patience Musa and Cindy Munyavi, will also host their own programmes.
AB Communications chief executive Mr Supa Mandiwanzira said ZiFM would not compete with other radio stations but complement them.
He also defended the decision to allow musicians to host their own programmes on the station saying they had other talents besides music.
