In answer to worldwide prayer and pressure, the dynamic Good News Community Radio has at last been awarded a new licence and is now back on air in Kwazulu Natal. The station has been involved in a 6 year legal battle after the ANC government's ICASA refused to renew their licence.
Good News Community Radio, which is based at Shortlands near Verulam on the North coast of Kwazulu Natal, been broadcasting since September 1995. It won a national award for their “Exam Buzz” education programmes, just before being forced off the air by ICASA. This was viewed as an ominous threat to religious freedom on the airwaves in South Africa.
