Mediamark History

In 2010, in line with our plan to diversify and include digital properties in our portfolio, we rebranded Radmark, a company with a heritage of more than 15 years in radio sales, as Mediamark. 

 The idea of RadMark was conceived after SATRA, the South African Telecommunications Regulatory Authority, then Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA), sold off the SABC radio stations late in 1996. NAIL (New Africa Investment Limited) had been awarded the license for Jacaranda fm and Kagiso Media the license for East Coast Radio and Radio Oranje. At this time, skills were scarce and primarily located within the ranks of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC). In order to provide economies of scale and to ensure that available skills were efficiently utilized, NAIL and Kagiso Media decided to establish a Radio Sales House.

KM’s heritage stems from one of the oldest black-led organisations namely Kagiso Trust whose aim, since inception, is to channel funds to uplift and empower disadvantaged communities. Today, KM is wholly-owned by Kagiso Tiso Holdings (KTH), a leading black owned South African investment company of which the Kagiso Trust owns a large equity stake.

About Kagiso Trust

Kagiso Trust (KT) was founded in 1985 during a period of intense struggle in South Africa. During this tumultuous time, we strongly opposed apartheid by providing support to development institutions and initiatives across a range of sectors. After 1994 we broadened our social vision through the establishment of Kagiso Trust Investments and for the next decade focused on uplifting our communities through targeted education and enterprise development programmes. In 2005, we secured our financial stability through a series of strategic investments and partnerships that strengthened and expanded our capacities to develop people and communities.
