Sajonisi Youth Radio (SYR) is newly formed community radio station located in Port St Johns (Eastern Cape, South Africa). The word “Sajonisi” is basically a local pronunciation of “St Johns” hence the place is also well known as Sajonisi. We have currently received a 4 year Class Service Community Broadcasting Licence, approved on the 7th of March 2013 by Independent Communication Authority of South Africa (ICASA).
The frequency is 88.5 FM in the region of Port St Johns which has 137 Villages with +/-157000 population according to stats of South Africa. Port St Johns is a small rural town which is facing a huge problem of poverty, with no job opportunities, problem of high rates of HIV and Aids, therefore SYR will be broadcasting programmes that are dealing with the daily challenges facing youth, women, people with disabilities and the community at large. The focus will be more on empowering our fellow young brothers and sisters to have better understanding with ever changing of technologies in industries, Our rural communities turned to be sidelined with developments and opportunities that are there for them;
