Tuks FM

Making History

Tuks FM was founded in 1981 and through its heritage of local music has been the origin of many bands and entertainers who are household names today.

Initially, Tuks FM broadcasted only to the University of Pretoria’s main campus and between 1982 and 1984 broadcast points extended to all University residences as well as the Onderstepoort and Medical Campuses. In 1995 the station received its first one year broadcasting license and started broadcasting on the 107.2 FM frequency, at 100W, in the greater Pretoria area.

In 2012, Tuks FM won seven awards at the MTN Radio Awards including South Africa’s Best Campus Radio Station of the year 2012. With successful rock concerts, and debuting local and international talent, Tuks FM has transformed into a community radio station of excellence recognised by industry as the breeding house of top talent for commercial radio.
