"The Pulse of The Diamond Community"
We are more than just a radio station. We are a dynamic art organization that provides rich experiences on the air, online and on the streets.
Radio Teemaneng is one of South Africa’s leading community radio stations currently ranked 23 according to the National Rams of October 2012, that serves all communities, regardless of race, religion, creed or color within the Kimberley/ Frances Baard region.
The station was a pilot project of the Training Education Research and Resource Centre.
The idea was motivated at a Media Conference held in October 1993 whereby an application was lodged with the then, IBA now known as ICASA (Independent Communication Authority of South Africa)
In 1995 a one year license was granted and we went on air for the first time in 1995.
The objective of Radio Teemaneng is to reflect the diversity and views of listeners through its programs.
Radio Teemaneng has over the years complied with its license conditions through interaction between radio and community, by producing programs in all four languages namely Setswana, IsiXhosa, Afrikaans and English, which is relevant as the spoken languages in the Kimberley region and surrounding areas.
We have won the coveted trophies for the following:
Best Provincial Performer 2004/5;
Northern Cape Sports Award for the Media Institute of the year 2006;
Body, Mind & Soul Listeners Association Award 2007
We have also been nominated for the best magazine writer for Radio.
Our Acting Station Manager, Ms. SF. Louw is the first ever woman to manage Radio Teemameng since its inception and many years of broadcasting.
