MultiChoice is adding GROOTfm 90.5 and LM Radio as two further radio stations on DStv's audio channels from 17 September.

GROOTfm 90.5 is an Afrikaans radio station and will be available on DStv's channel 920; LM Radio broadcasts in Southern Mozambique and in Lesotho as well as over the internet and will be available on DStv's channel 921.

GROOTfm 90.5 started in August 2013 as a community radio station for the greater Pretoria area.

GROOTfm is being used for kykNET's (DStv 144) radio on TV breakfast show Die GROOTontbyt with Johrné van Huyssteen, Nadia Beukes, Hendri Myburgh, Elsa Esterhuizen and Rouchelle Liedemann.
