In the central town of Otjiwarongo, Otjozondjupa region, a commercial Radio that comprises of young entrepreneurs was established in 2014 with the aim of participating in the socio economic transformation of the country and draws a target demographic age between 15-35 to come on the table and focus on generational issues of nation building.
Against this background, the need to educate, inform and entertain our young people and the entire communities quantified an ideal for the young entrepreneurs to come together to form a consortium to migrate innovative ideas on what could be done, and the idea was born that only through media platform would address an element of educating, informing and entertaining our nation, and that could only be realized through a multimedia platform and Otji-Fm was established. OTJI stands for the town and region we are based in namely Otjiwarongo and Otjozondjupa.
