The popular Western CapeTalk radio station [on 567 kHz] has been left unable to broadcast on its biggest platform – after its transmitter site was burgled overnight.
One of the biggest radio stations in the Western Cape has been left unable to broadcast to its audience via the radio on Sunday, thanks to an act of criminality. As it stands, CapeTalk cannot operate on a radio frequency – leaving thousands of listeners unable to tune in for their favourite programmes.
It has since been revealed that there was a burglary at the transmitter site – an integral part of CapeTalk’s set-up. The theft was reported earlier this morning, and police have now opened an investigation into the matter. The station issued this statement today, confirming that there are other ways to tune into the channel while the radio service is down.
