Chinhoyi University of Technology Granted Campus Radio Licence


BY STAFF REPORTER

CHINHOYI University of Technology (CUT) has been given an operating licence 

by the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (BAZ) to set up a campus radio 

station.

The station will be known as CUT fm.

The varsity kick started the legal process to allow the learning 

institution establish a campus radio station in April, and the awarding of 

a licence is set to transform the media landscape in the university town.

CUT public relations officer, Simba Pumhayi, who is part of the team behind 

the project, announced the development in a Facebook post, this week.

"On Tuesday 24 August 2021, l had to be the first person from my workplace 

to receive a Campus Radio Broadcasting Service Licence from the 

Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (BAZ) signalling the beginning of CUT FM 

Radio Station.

"I was personally happy to have a team that supported me through and 

through. The whole team was supportive and exceptionally helpful," posted 

Pumhayi.

The Broadcasting Services Licence was granted in terms of Section 10 of the 

Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (Chapter 12:06).

By the time of publishing, NewZimbabwe.com could not get finer details of 

the project from the university’s public relations director, Musekiwa 

Tapera.

CUT joins another state tertiary institution, Great Zimbabwe University 

(GZU) which operates a campus radio station that is accessible to the 

general citizenry of ancient Masvingo town.
