About Voice of Wits (VOW FM) 90.5:
Voice of Wits (VOWFM) is the lifeblood to one of the largest tertiary institutions in South Africa, Wits University and broadcasting 24 hours a day communicating and interacting on a daily basis with at least 28 000 students and staff as well as the various communities in and around the University foot-print. VOWFM’s footprint extends to Braamfontein, Parktown, Auckland Park, Westcliff, Newtown, Pageview, Fordsburg, Melville and the central CBD.
VOW FM uses a predominantly hot contemporary format focusing on Dance, R&B, Rock and Pop, House and Hip Hop. Monday to Friday from 6am-6pm, the station plays current chart tracks and tracks that are about to become charted whilst including some classic which are listed under the Category of Awesome. This format enables the station to capture the largest possible market share through its cross over appeal. However our audience is extremely diverse, the station has listeners from all walks of life, some of which are students, people working within the surrounding CBD, even staff members of the university and academics who are based within the campus. While this may present a challenge, we have programmed various specialist shows that focus on specific genres of music. These shows cater for the diverse tastes within our community and allow for the exposure of artists that may not normally be in high rotation. This includes Rock (alternative, indie, etc), House/Dance (deep, funky, etc), Hip Hop (underground, commercial, rap, etc), Jazz, etc and even Independent “Garage” music. The station also has various chart shows; the official station’s TOP 40, the Local 12@12 and the Electro Top 10@10.
