We are not selling SABC 3, Metro FM and 5FM – SABC

The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has denied reports that it will sell SABC 3, Metro FM, 5FM, and Good Hope FM as part of radical changes envisioned for the state-owned broadcaster.

“The SABC has been made aware of an article by Inside Politics African Narrative published on 04 February 2020, claiming to have exclusive access to a document titled ‘Repurposing the State-Owned Enterprises as Instruments for Economic Growth’,” the SABC said.

This article states that the state-owned broadcaster could sell SABC 3, Metro FM, 5FM and Good Hope FM and exit commercial broadcasting altogether as part of the radical overhaul proposed by the government.
