World Radio Day 2017 Podcast Series: Interview with Noma Masina Tue, 2017-01-31 13:28

In the build up to the World Radio Day Event 2017 the SOAS Radio Team will be interviewing community radio, representatives of communication for development organisations, radio industry professionals and academics on this years theme of ‘Radio and Global Transitions’ in a series of podcasts.

In this episode, Joe Smith talks to Noma Masina. Noma is the Current Affairs Producer for ZiFM Stereo,  the first independent, non-state radio station to be set up in Zimbabwe in 2012, a senior teaching fellow at the centre for Media Studies at SOAS, and was formerly a writer for the Zimbabwe Independent Newspaper.

Noma talked with Joe about the role of a private radio in the context of the history of Zimbabwe’s State broadcasting dominance, pre- and post-independence, the role of alternative broadcasting in the build up to elections and social media and its usefulness and limitations in youth uprisings, with specific reference to the #Rhodesmustfall and #feesmustfall movements in South Africa.

The World Radio London 2017 event will be hosted by SOAS Radio on Friday 10th February, in the Brunei Gallery at SOAS, University of London from 3-8pm.
