The Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (BAZ) has extended the deadline for digital television and community radio licence applications to May 29.
BAZ chief executive Obert Muganyura on Wednesday said the decision was reached after a request from stakeholders. He said:
The Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe wishes to advise members of the public that the deadline for submission of licence applications for the provision of Digital Television and Community Broadcasting Services has been extended from the 20th of March 2020 to the 29th of May.
This extension is due to the request and representations that have been made to the Authority by prospective applicants and stakeholders.
BAZ had initially set March 20 as the deadline for both television and community radio station applications, while university campus radio stations were not given any deadline.
