Classic105 Acquires Touch-Based Virtual Radio Technology From Lawo

News Image
Kenya's Classic105 streaming radio station (classic105.com), a part of the Radio Africa Group, has embraced Lawo touch-based Virtual Radio technology with a state-of-the-art crystalCLEAR mixing setup.

This installation follows another recent installation of Lawo virtual mixing solutions at a Radio Africa sister station, underscoring the group's plan for transitioning to modern IP production infrastructure.

The Classic105 Morning Show with Maina Kagemi and comedian Churchill as Mwalimu King’ang’i has become a cult favorite; perky radio program often highlighting controversial topics. The show is very popular amongst women who are encouraged to call and discuss peculiar relationship stories – battling their way through the topics in a mix of Swahili and English. The drive show is hosted by another big voice in Kenyan radio airwaves, Cess Mutungi, also known as 'Queen of Radio'. Captivating listeners with her deep, husky voice and unique sense of humor, she keeps listeners glued to the radio.

Nairobi-based Radio Africa Group (radioafricagroup.co.ke) is one of Kenya's most dynamic media companies, with a portfolio of radio and television stations, websites and print newspapers. Recently, a Lawo RƎLAY PC-based virtual mixing system was installed at sister station Kiss100 FM, proving so successful that they returned to Lawo to outfit Classic105 as well.
