SABC on Second Round of Public Consultations in the Editorial Policy Review Process

 

Johannesburg - Thursday, 12 July 2018 – The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) is pleased to announce the second round of public consultations, into the review of its 2004 Editorial Policy.

These public consultations are scheduled to take place from the 23rd of July to the 31st of July 2018. This follows a vigorous and successful process in which the corporation first embarked on a process to review its 2004 Editorial Policy on the 31st of July 2017.

The Editorial Policy project team has since collated and consolidated the public inputs and submissions to develop a draft policy which was submitted to the corporation’s Operations Committee for comment and concurrence. The draft policy was then sent to the SABC’s Board of Directors for comment.

This draft policy is now available to the public and interested parties from today on www.sabc.co.za/editorialpolicy. Submissions and inputs on the draft policy can be sent via email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

SABC Spokesperson, Mr Kaizer Kganyago stated that “the editorial policies play a pivotal role in providing the framework within which sound decisions regarding the SABC’s content offerings are made in order to meet the public service remit which is bestowed upon the SABC as a public service broadcaster”.

He further commented that “we are thankful of the meaningful contribution thus far from all South African citizens and organisations, who have participated in this important process. This shows that the SABC is truly an institution for the people and a process like this one offers the citizens with a sense of ownership of this public institution”.

The public consultations will be held in the following areas:
