Background

Mosupatsela FM dates its existence from its first broad cast on 28th January 2000 after a rough road of consultations and preparations from as far back as 1996. As its name implies, Mosupatsela, literally meaning ‘The Path Pointer’, came as a living evidence that there is an end to every struggle and consensus in every disagreement while two original members SKY FM and Botshabelo Community Radio merged to establish Mosupatsela FM. “The merger was stretching, but we successfully made it, we were confronted with a lot challenges afterwards, but still we made it to this brim of success everyone is proud about today” said the Station Manager. Mosupatsela FM is a community Radio Station, it is run by the people for the people. Subscribers from the community convene Annual General Meeting (AGM) at certain intervals to put together the Board of Directors and delegate their responsibility to formulate policies and provide an oversight role on the implementation of the mandate of the station. Mosupatsela FM has since its existence provided career development opportunities for many and now offers this platform to over thirty (30) individuals.

Management
The station is competently administered by a group of competent individuals with diverse backgrounds and significant experience in Radio. At the helm of the Management is Mr Sello Mosala who provides operational direction of the Station. His management team is divided into Programmes Department, News Department, Finance & Admin Department and Sales & Marketing Department. Where gaps exist within the internal structure, the station outsource services from Consultants and Professionals.
