MSU Radio Opts for Crystal Consoles

From our “Who’s Buying What” page … In December 2020, Midlands State University in Gweru, Zimbabwe, became one of the first three colleges in the country to be granted a license to operate an FM radio station. Since going on air, MSU Radio has worked to support and transform local communities with its broadcasts on 90.3 MHz in Zvishavane and 101.7 MHz in Gweru.

To ensure its students are trained on a platform that allows them to produce professional-quality programs, MSU Radio recently built out two new studios with support from B+I, a South Africa-based systems integration company. As part of the project, 12-fader Lawo crystal radio mixing consoles were installed in the new studios.

According to Lawo, the new studios “will enable students by way of hands-on training to develop essential skills in radio production and broadcasting, preparing them for successful careers in the industry.”
