About Us

Radio broadcasting began in South Africa in 1923, under the auspices of South African Railways, before three radio services were licensed, the Association of Scientific and Technical Societies (AS and TS) in Johannesburg, the Cape Peninsular Publicity Association in Cape Town and the Durban Corporation, which began broadcasting in 1924. These were then merged into the African Broadcasting Company in 1927, owned by I W Schlesinger, a wealthy businessman, but on August 1, 1936, these were sold to the SABC, established that year through an Act of Parliament. The SABC took over the African Broadcasting Company's staff and assets. It maintained a state monopoly on radio until the launch of Radio 702 in 1980. Although the subscription funded television service M Net was launched in 1986, the SABC had a monopoly on free to air television until the launch of e.tv in 1998. During National Party rule from 1948 onwards, it came under increasing criticism and accusations of being biased towards the then ruling party.
