Tuks FM has won a 2019 Small Business Award, hosted by CV-Magazine, for Best Campus Radio Station in South Africa.

According to Corporate Vision’s website, the Small Business Awards recognise the outstanding achievements, dedication and hard work of those running a small business or organisation. The awards include small businesses from around the globe and from a vast and diverse range of business sectors. All candidates nominated have either been put forward by CV-Magazine themselves in a publisher cast nomination, or via a third party on an online voting form.

Tuks FM’s Station Manager Leanne Kunz says the award is a huge honour.

“I’m so happy that Tuks FM is being recognised for the hard work we’ve put in over the past two years, when we started as a brand new management team. It’s been a rollercoaster to say the least: from implementing a brand new strategy and all new structures; to creating a new vision, mission, ethos and culture – but I wouldn’t change it for anything. We’ve all grown and learned so much, and this is only the start. We’re already onto the next big thing!” she said.

The Small Business Awards are judged by a highly experienced panel that consists of an international, multi-lingual collective of individuals, with backgrounds from a myriad of fields including business, media, journalism, history and European languages.
