The station is owned and controlled by Avuka Media and is the only station that is targeting the youth with two languages of broadcast, IsiXhosa and English in the Western Cape. This differentiating factor matters as it provides the youth with a platform to express themselves, to engage with each other and interact with the rest of the world. This is done within the context of our mandate to inform, educate and entertain, to support and develop culture and as far as possible ensure the fair and equal treatment of the predominant languages in the province.
