Touch FM is a youth-centric commercial radio station, focused on programming that is informative, engaging, entertaining, empowering, inspiring, and respectful to the diversity of its listeners.
“Touch FM is a multi-media platform that ties in with the national broadcaster’s mandate to educate, entertain and inform all, while contributing to empowering and engaging with the youth of Namibia.
“The station aims to remain youthful and stylish, and provide progressive entertainment solutions. Touch FM coming on board the DStv and GOtv audio bouquets strengthens the broadcaster’s reach and thus ensures that the truly Namibian, entertainment-driven radio station reaches all borders of the country to complement the NBC’s over-the-top service, NBC Plus, “ said Mario Locke Touch FM’s manager.
NBC director-general, Stanley Similo, commented that NBC prides itself in leading and paving the way forward for the youth of Namibia. The national broadcaster aims to provide a voice for the youth to tell their stories in a manner that they understand and want to be understood.
“With the provision made for Touch FM to be available on DStv and GOtv audio bouquets, we can further cater for the void in youth segments and reach the masses, and add yet another milestone to the NBC’s achievements. The NBC strives to continue to push the envelope and remain on the leading edge of technology as was the case with NBC Plus that allows viewers and avid listeners the platform to stay connected to local television and radio programming from anywhere in the world, “ said Similo.
Roger Gertze, managing director for MultiChoice Namibia, said MultiChoice continues to be an aggregator of content, adding that they find and develop content, and then deliver it to viewers through various avenues of technology, developing their geographical footprint through collaborating with Namibians, while providing access to technical and content infrastructure. “On-boarding Touch FM speaks to our continued efforts to remain pioneers in the digital broadcasting space and as our partnership grows, we will remain as Africa’s favourite storyteller, bringing HD content to homes of all Namibians,” said Gertze.
