Trans World Radio to retire shortwave services to South Africa by December 31, 2019

(Source: Trans World Radio via Marcus Keulertz)

Due to changes to the media landscape and subsequent decline in demand for shortwave radio broadcasts in South Africa, TWR will be reducing our English morning broadcasts in the 49, 60 and 90 metre bands on October 27th – followed by a retirement of these broadcasts on December 31st.

We thank God for the impact these broadcasts have had over the last 45 years and wish to remind listeners that you can still enjoy listening to TWR’s English programmes on Satellite (DStv Audio Ch 855), Medium Wave (1170 AM from 8PM CAT) and via our TWR Africa App and TWR Africa Website.

For any assistance, or to request our new reduced English SW schedule, please reply to this email, and we will gladly assist you.

Blessings and peace,

    One of the last African stations heard here in New England on 90 meters. With SABC recently abandoning Sonder Grense and the English service, that about wraps it up for regular tropical band listening from that part of the world. Though I am sure that it is costly, I wonder how TWR measured their SW listening audience to make the determination.
