Take part in '702 Listens' survey: Help us identify and tackle issues

702 turns 40 years old this year, in June. As part of our birthday celebrations, we are conducting our biggest survey ever of 702 listeners called “702 Listens”.

We want to find out about the issues of concern in the different communities in Gauteng. The sort of things that keep our listeners awake at night.

As 702 Programme Manager Alastair Teeling-Smith puts it, while the survey will help us programming 702 to become a radio station that is even more rooted in 702land and connected to our listeners, we plan to do more.

Through the “702 Listens” survey, we aim to identify the top issues of concern in the different areas of 702land and do something about it. We’ll be going to those communities to shine the spotlight and hold those responsible to account, and hopefully making a difference together with our listeners. We’ll be doing this through a series of year-long outside broadcasts and town halls in Gauteng, our broadcast area which we call 702land.
