Capital-Radio-with-an-Afritude-800x600

Capital Radio was based in one of South Africa’s Bantustans during the apartheid days. Originally it targeted a predominantly white, English-speaking audience in South Africa’s then Natal province. David Smith, a former journalist at Capital, was brought in, along with Francis Rolt, to reformat Capital and make it relevant to the majority black audience that fell within the footprint of the station’s FM transmitters in what is today the Eastern Cape Province. Capital Radio, the station with an Afritude, was born.
