Launched in March 2023, Radio 47 is merely a year old in the Kenyan media scene, but contrary to general perceptions that radio broadcasting is an ‘ancient’ means of information dissemination topped by social media, generally the internet, and other forms of media, it has grown to be one of the most popular radio stations in Kenya.

Three months after going live on air, listener-supported Radio 47 had already scooped a Bronze at the sixth edition of Kuza Broadcasting Awards by the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) to recognize and fete excellence in broadcasting after coming third in the favorite radio station category.

Its sister station, however, visual, TV47, won in the commercial FTA (Free to Air) TV category at that awards ceremony, whose winners were based on consumer feedback as voting was open to the public. TV47, together with Radio 47, is owned by Cape Media Limited.
