ZBC’s National FM radio station is breaking new ground with its listeners’ club uniting people with diverse backgrounds and also engaging in various activities, including humanitarian work.
With a membership of over 3,000 countrywide, the listeners’ club which has been in existence for 20 years, has embarked on different activities including tours to Malawi Broadcasting Corporation.
The group is also into philanthropic work which has seen them extending a helping hand in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic by donating face masks to the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC).
“National fm has managed to unite different people who speak different languages and this has inspired us to donate these masks for the Zbc employees to be protected when they go out there to carry out their duties,” said club president Amon Madzamuse.
Acting ZBC Chief Executive Officer, Ms Helliate Rushwaya commended the club for the initiative.
“As ZBC we really appreciate what has been done by the club members,” she said.
“This is a clear testimony that the station is a force to reckon in the country. We really thank you for joining in the fight against the deadly COVID-19.”
While also welcoming the move, National FM station Manager, Mr Isaac Munzabwa shed more light on the relationship between the station and club members.
“The club was formed 20 years ago and we interact well with the club,” he said.
“Last year they even funded a Malawi tour and they took some of our DJs with them. They toured Malawi broadcasting Corporation and today they have shown kindness to us and we are very grateful.”
National FM has also united listeners from Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana, South Africa, Malawi and Namibia through the listeners club which was formed in 2000.
