Our program format since inception has been excellent music and relevant blah blah. efmradio airs on 91.5fm in the Erongo Region – listen to us in Swakopmund and in Walvis Bay where we reach approximately 175000 listeners excluding our ever growing online audience.
My name is Carol. I started broadcasting in 1995 after listening to an announcer thinking ”I can do that!”. Not long afterwards my favourite radio station asked for volunteers. What a contrast! Listening at home was slightly different to doing a voice test in front of everyone to whom I had listened to for years. A few of us were chosen from many hopefuls and my journey began. My work experience in South Africa also included a morning show on a national radio station.
None of this was as scary though as opening the efmradio mic for the first time in May 2005 in Namibia. The excitement far outweighed the nervousness we felt at the enormity of the task ahead. While there have certainly been rocky moments in the last 16 years, the highlights have by far outweighed the tough stuff that comes with the territory.
