Bush Radio Managing Director, Brenda Leonard giving Cornerstone Institute CEO, Noel Daniels some in studio tips and tricks while Mkhuseli Veto looks on

Bush Radio 89.5FM in partnership with the Cornerstone Institute will this week (Thursday, 7 October 2021 from 7pm)  launch two new programmes.

The first is the Cornerstone Critical Dialogues and the second is Community Champions.

Cornerstone Critical Dialogues which starts at 7pm, will feature some of South Africa’s most influential thinkers, activists, performing artists and business people to debate the topics that matter most for society. Journalist Ryan Fortune will lead this collaborative project – a live radio show and podcast on Bush Radio and other platforms – is a direct offshoot (and next logical evolution) of the popular Cornerstone Critical Dialogues series.

Community Champions at 9pm  is where Noel Daniels, CEO of the Cornerstone Institute, will be chatting with one community champion, social or cultural activist, who may not always get the attention they deserve in the mainstream media. Noel will take us on a journey, exploring the world of leaders of non-profit organisations, social entrepreneurs, ground breakers and doers who are making a difference in their communities. They all have one thing in common – they are the people who play it forward.

Vaxx On, Vaxx off

17/09/2021

Renato, Bush Radio’s 22-year-old logistics and programming intern, took the big step this week and went for the first part of his Covid-19 vaccination.

He said he was very nervous and hates needles, but like so many people in our worldwide community he has been directly affected by the pandemic with the loss of family members.

“My experience on getting the vaccine, it was quick and fast, I looked away for a second and it was over. It literally felt like a prick. With my side effects, I just felt a little bit of a headache, a little bit of chills. My arm was just a little bit sore for about two days and on the second day my headache and chills went away and on the third day I was up, back and running,” said Renato. 

Along with several volunteers, staff and interns he went to the CTICC vaccination site to get his jab on Monday morning. 

He decided to get the jab after studying the facts available and knowing that he is helping to safeguard his family and colleagues at the station, and the communities Bush Radio serve when going out on projects like outside broadcasts and events. 

Renato also has on-air duties, so if you would like to ask him or find out about his Covid-19 vaccination experience tune in on Monday, September 20, 2021, from 2pm till 4pm on Backchat when you can message or call him.
