Magalata FM, which broadcasts in the Borana language, went on air in January 2022.
While its frequency has not been made public, the station is already online and can be accessed on the company’s main website or the Citizen Digital application.
The station plays music on most occasions and has a few shows since it is not fully operational.
RMS is actively recruiting employees for its new station and has announced various open positions including; reporters, news presenters, and head of the station.
Those interested can apply by sending their CVs and cover letters to [email protected] before Monday, January 17, at 5:00 pm.
Applicants have also been asked to quote the reference numbers of the different positions that they are applying for. More details can be accessed on the Royal Media Services careers page.
A highly-placed source, who spoke to kenyagist.com on condition of anonymity, revealed that RMS will officially launch Magalata FM in the coming weeks.
“We are still working on it. There is no date set yet. The station will target the Borana community and we have advertised for presenters ,” the source asserted.
The launch comes a month after RMS owned by media mogul, Samuel Kamau (SK) Macharia, unveiled Ramogi TV – a 24-hour free-to-air channel offering general entertainment to customers and broadcasts in Dholuo (Luo) vernacular language.
