MetroFM 107.7FM East London

MetroFM is part of the government owned South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) which started broadcasting Radio Metro way back in October, 1986 to compete with the now defunct Radio Bop. Playing a mix of urban contemporary and bubblegum pop, Radio Bop was able to reach black audiences in parts of the Transvaal by broadcasting on the AM band from the then Independent neighboring country of Bophuthatswana where it was licensed. This prompted the SABC’s then management to launch Radio Metro which was put on air in about six months, from the planning stages.

SABC

The station launched the careers of a number of radio celebrities including Bob Mabena, Shado Twala and Lawrence Dube.

Over the years the station has had a number of competitors, including in the very competitive Johannesburg radio market where two stations, Kaya FM and YFM, launched in mid/late 1990s have taken away some audience from Metro FM.
