[PARTNER CONTENT] Since the first commercial radio station (Radio 99) was licensed outside of the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation in the early ’90s, Mark Knocker has been representing radio stations in Namibia and booking advertising for South African agencies and clients operating in that market.
Namibia offers world class media owner opportunities to reach a market which sells the same products and services as you would find here in South Africa. Their currency if one for one with the South African Rand which makes doing business in this market extremely easy.

Here are some insights from Radio Stations broadcasting in Namibia.
The lockdown really changed our thinking about daytime radio away from the drive times – we experienced enormous reaction right through the day. That has continued as people rediscovered radio – and we have a host of new features through the day now. People still wanted to hear the latest hits – music makes you feel better when the world disappoints. ~ Juan Vorster, station manager Radiowave 96.7
Being Namibia’s biggest commercial station, we carried an huge responsibility to our national audience in terms of getting the right information to them quickly. Our format, which encourages a lot of dialogue with guests as well as audiences, suited the kind of unpredictable news flow that happened during lockdown. Our audiences responded so positively, we became a trusted adviser in a sea of fake news. ~ Simon Mundandala, station manager Omulunga Radio

NOVA 1035 launched during lockdown, as a way of giving a platform to long form news and actuality when Namibia needed to stay up to date with the rapidly changing environment. We became the trusted platform that spoke to people that KNEW, and the traction we have experienced for our national AC format has been fantastic. ~ Deon van Rensburg, station manager NOVA 1035
Fresh FM believes in letting our listeners speak, and they certainly kept us busy this year. It quickly became obvious just how important it was to have a platform that was a trusted space, and Fresh FM took that role very seriously. In between playing the sound of our youth, we also became a counsellor, therapist, best friend and fellow victim. Radio became very important again this year! ~ KC Butshe, FResh FM
What a weird year for radio – audiences rocketed whilst revenues plummeted. We made that radio was forefront of people experience this year – our stations were led by what the audiences needed, and we also launched our Future Media News platform. Given that we reach 55% of all adult Namibians across our four national radio stations, the news brand built quickly and already now one of the most trusted platforms for accurate news and information. There is no doubt that radio has emerged more powerful, trusted and respected than ever. ~ Gary Stroebel, CEO Future Media
