SABC: Tell us what you think of us

2012-08-07 13:28
Cape Town – Sick of Isidingo or crazy about Khumbul'ekhaya? Angry about bad shows, repeats, the times when certain shows are on, not enough programming in your language, irritating presenters or not enough sport or talk shows?

In an unprecedented move the SABC is allowing people to vent at South Africa's public broadcaster until Friday 10 August.

The SABC is inviting TV viewers and radio listeners of the SABC's three TV stations and 18 radio stations to tell the broadcaster what it is they don't like, what they do like and what they want to see and hear on TV and radio.

The SABC's "Make Your Voices Heard" campaign is running from today until Friday 10 August.

Viewers and listeners of the SABC have the chance to e-mail the broadcaster at

'Their programming, their content'

The SABC says its wants to get feedback on all of its programming content including music, news and current affairs offerings.

"It is very important for our own audience to comment about our content, to comment about the way we do things at the SABC, so that we do not just wake up and decide for people what they want - their programming, their content.

"They need to contribute," said Hlaudi Motsoeneng, the SABC's acting chief operating officer (COO).

"We hope that our community will influence the direction we are taking."

The TV shows Shift, Matric's Uploaded and YO.TV on SABC1, Morning Live and Hectic Nine-9 on SABC2 and Three Talk with Noeleen on SABC3 will be used to engage with viewers on what exactly they want to see on the SABC's TV channels.

Viewers will also be able to comment on TV content through the SABC's Facebook and Twitter accounts.
