Church owned Christian radio station 104.1 Power FM is undergoing major changes, UG Christian News has learnt.
Earlier this week, the station listeners took to social media under the hashtag #SavePowerfm to express discontentment over why no statement was issued regarding the continued exit of various presenters – especially Deejays.
In a period of less than six (6) months, one listener wrote on Twitter, DJ Stef, Byg Tim, Reverend DJ, DJ Hush M and Twonjex have left 104.1 Power FM.
“Yvonne left under unclear circumstances and after listeners continuously asking, we were told she moved on – who moves on just like that? I think listeners deserve some clear explanations and accountability,” the listener added.
“Dear Power FM Uganda and Watoto Church, we as the love family feel let down. Power FM Uganda has been a part of our lives and so have the presenters. We’re upset with what’s going on and all we want right now are some answers,” another listener wrote.
In a statement issued Tuesday, the station management reacted to the grievances saying “everything we do is for you and about you.”
“Now as you might have already noticed, we are undergoing changes in our programming and for the station as a whole, this has meant that we have had to part with some of our team members i.e. Deejays, presenters and some behind the scenes staff,” the statement read in part.
“It has not been an easy process for anyone involved and we ask that you keep us in your prayers through it all. We are still committed to reaching the unchurched youth with the love of Jesus and are still all about love,” the statement added.
“We believe and pray that you will have the courage to walk this journey with us still. As soon as the final new product is ready- as usual- you will be the first ones to know,”the statement further read.
