In may of 2016 the SABC introduced a 90% local content quota across its portfolio of radio stations, including 5FM.

Now I think we can all agree that local is lekker, however the forceful nature and extreme quantum of the decision raises a number of flags......

These are public assets which are jointly owned by all Southy Africas, therefore we want to hear from you!!

-What is your opinion on the SABC's decision?
-Should the SABC be allowed to forcefully control what South Africans listen to?
-Have you even noticed the shift in content at 5FM ?
- What are your overall thoughts on the changes? Do you think they have had a positive or negative influence over the station?

Typical South African approach of implement now, apologies later...
I dig it - i'm glad they did it!
Approach was not graceful at all, but like i said before, it's typical SA approach
