Caledon FM and The NEWS form partnership
With the establishment of a joint broadcasting studio at Village Square, in the heart of Hermanus, Caledon FM, soon to be rebranded CFM, and The Village NEWS have established a partnership that will allow for the creation of an Overberg-wide news and media organisation.
“Taking The Village NEWS to the airwaves was the next logical step towards building a good news Overberg community media and information organisation. CFM was a natural partner given the size of their listenership and the extent of their broadcasting area,” says De Waal Steyn, publishing editor of The Village NEWS.
“Just like The Village NEWS focuses on good news, CFM is there to make people feel good. I think that there is a lot of good news happening in the Overberg, so it is great that we have the same vision,” says Hannes Smal, the founder of the radio station.
