I am Chrissie Bantjes known by my radio name, X – Factor, and I am proud to call Alternative Views Radio (AVRADIO.ZA) my own.
I started my radio career at Spinn Radio where I was a presenter of programs like “Klip in die bos” and “Let us remember”.
I entered a competition run by Spinn Radio and USL Services and won the competition becoming the proud owner of a domain that I call Alternative Views.
My original intention was to start a blog however the seed of starting a radio station was planted during the process of setting up the domain and blog by a very dear friend.
I started to play with the idea and before I knew what happened my husband offered to sponsor me for a few months. I took his offer – the planning started.
I became friends with Nina Ganci before I left Spinn Radio, after she was interviewed by my husband Victor on his program, “Pagan Talk”, that later changed to “Tell us more”. We started talking and I ran the idea of the radio station by her and being a successful businesswoman herself she immediately said that she can see the potential and we became a mean team. Nina became my business advisor and together we started working on project AVRADIO.ZA
A few weeks of hard work and long hours of brainstorming brought us to the point where started the facebook like page Alternative Views Radio and the group page
The first test broadcast was done on 9 April 2017 at 14:00. You can listen to that broadcast here…
I would like to thank everybody that made it possible for this dream to come true. Love and Light to all.
