Radio 47, the newest kid on the block, is literally shaking Kenya’s airwaves. The management, led by Mount Kenya University (MKU) chairman and founder, Prof Simon Gicharu, recently launched the station.

The radio station is a sister company to TV 47 owned by Cape Media Company. The proprietor is understood to have acquired radio frequencies from a private investor who disposed of them after the elections.

The new radio has been in a recruitment spree, snapping up top talent across established media houses.

The biggest casualty of Radio 47’s assault has so far Radio Maisha, owned by Standard Group, which has lost a good number of presenters to Radio 47.

Radio 47 has also raided Milele FM of Mediamax Network, owned by former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s family.

Radio 47 frequencies will cover some of Kenya’s main towns including Nairobi, Webuye, Kisumu, Kericho, Mumias, Mombasa, Lamu and Garsen, among others.

Radio 47 is joining a crowded market in the radio industry and is expected to battle it out with the established brands in the industry led by Radio Citizen of Royal Media Services, Milele FM, Radio Maisha and KBC Radio Taifa, among others.


Radio47 is located in Parklands, Nairobi, Kenya.


Radio47 is owned by Cape Media Company which is owned by Mount Kenya University (MKU) chairman and founder, Prof Simon Gicharu.
