RX Radio SA

RX Radio is a unique award-winning radio station that is by and for children, based at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in Cape Town. We have trained 135 Child and Young Reporters aged 4 to 18, at Red Cross Children's Hospital, Paarl Hospital and Brooklyn Chest Hospital. We are also one of the first radio stations in the world to have children broadcasting from within a hospital. A team of 4 staff, 1 intern, 1 mentor, volunteers and former reporters work behind the scenes to train, coordinate, and support the reporters – but the children are always behind the microphones and are active participants in the production. They design their own shows, choose the music, invite guests, write interview questions, and even plan fundraising events!
