IQ FM Project

iQhayiya Radio (IQ FM) is a community radio station that has been operating for a few years. The project, launched by a group of highly motivated youth, grew from strength to strength and enjoys a solid audience base in the area of Samora Machel, Cape Town. The group had to face various challenges, the most important of which were: the transition from informal radio station to registered broadcaster, and the development of the leadership group’s entrepreneurial and managerial skills, so that inclusion within the a professionalized environment could be facilitated. Rainbow Media assisted the leadership team along this path, and financed the execution of a technical frequency analysis, one of the last few steps in the process of transforming IQFM into a fully fledged radio.
