Hello All,
My full names are Gift Malambo, I am a reporter, producer and presenter of one of the popular radio program in Zambia called “Farming Today”. The program is aired on national broadcaster (Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation- ZNBC Radio 1) every Saturdays at 13:30 hours local time. This program has been on air for more than 30 years now. Due to popular demand, some times the same program is translated into local languages and broadcasted through some local community radio stations dotted around the country.

Being a reporter, I enjoy my work because it has given me the opportunities of interacting with different kind of people of different professionals in our communities. I do interact with farmers, experts in agriculture, NGOs, agricultural companies, politicians and name them.

I hope to learn from my fellow participates on how they are servicing the communities in their respective countries and communities through radio.
Thank you all

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the Barza Interactive Radio discussion. My name is Busi Ngcebetsha, I am your moderator for this discussion. I have a community radio background and I have been working with different radio stations and organisations, training them in producing radio programmes that speak to their target audiences. I believe radio is a great access to information tool as it reaches more people at any given time.

This discussion is about interactive radio. We will look at the different interactive radio approaches, what works, what doesn’t and explore and exchange best practices that will assist on improving your radio programming. This is a 4-week discussion and in each week we will have specific topics that we will be concentrating on.

In the first week, you will need to introduce yourself and take part in the icebreaker activity, I will explain this in detail shortly…
In week 2, you will share your understanding and experiences on interactive radio
In week 3, we will concentrate on gender and interactive radio.
In week 4, the final week, we will look at different interactive radio approaches and tools…

Your tasks for this week:

Introduction: Click on the “reply” button and introduce yourself. Your introduction should include where you are from, the name of your radio station, the program you produce/present, how your studio looks like. It would be great if you can also take a picture of the studio and upload here.

Icebreaker: Go to http://discussion.farmradio.fm/t/week-one-icebreaker and follow instructions.
