Radio Days Africa 2019: Presentations by Anice Hassim, Phil Molefe & the SBC
We addressed delegates and shared the impact of Fabrik at Radio Days Africa 2019 in Johannesburg from 3 to 5 July 2019, whilst our team demonstrated how technology can elevate radio at our stand.
Back to the Future: Anice Hassim
The rise of digital has been a quest to be of service to humans through authentic, trusted and intimate engagement, all while maintaining a human and community driven value system. Radio has been on the journey all along. Digital platforms can amplify radio’s core assets as radio learns new tools, but not new values. Anice Hassim (Lead Strategist) tells us how radio’s digital promise is rooted in its human past. Listen to the podcast.

Join Franz Krüger (Director Wits Radio Academy and Head of Journalism), Nada Wotshela (SABC Radio GE), Bérard Duprès (Seychelles Broadcasting Corporation CEO) and Phil Molefe (Southern African Broadcasting Association) as they discuss the current state of public broadcasting in Africa and if there is any sign of reforming these services.
