Moutse Community Radio Station (MCRS) was founded by members of the Rural Women's Movement (RWM), a national organisation in South Africa, which lobbies around issues of concern to rural women.  The station operates with a board of trustees who set the overall vision and perspective, four management staff members who coordinate the training, administration, technical and programming departments, and 37 volunteer staff members who work as radio announcers or presenters (30 fulltime and 11 part-time). Moutse Community Radio is a member of the National Community Radio Forum. 

Our Current listenership is at 102 000 and we are aiming to reach more than 300 000 in the three years. We have celebrated 20th Anniversary on the 8th November 2017. MCRS broadcasts from studios located on R573 Waalkraal, on 96.3MHz in the FM band in Moutse in the local Municipality of Elias Motsoaledi and Sekhukhune District in Limpopo.  Moutse Community Radio broadcast area covers Limpopo and Mpumalanga, Nkangala District, Sekhukhune District and other parts of Polokwane and Pretoria. The radio station also has audio streaming whereby people tune via internet. We can be reached on 96.3fm in the most municipalities in both Limpopo and Mpumalanga. It is a non-profit organisation, run by dedicated team of volunteering staff who receives stipend at the end of each month. 

MCRS commenced operation in 1997, with a small band of volunteers broadcasting a limited range of programs from an old Department of Agriculture building. 10 years later, it transferred to its current location in Waalkraal provided by Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality.

I am sure everyone heard the news about a planned Sentech switch off for the community radio stations that are unable to pay. We would like to inform you that your beloved radio station is not affected by the planned switch off. We are a self serving radio station and are not using any of the Sentech transmitters. On the other hand the affected radio stations are currently meeting with the relevant stakeholders to sort out the dilemma facing them. We will continue to serve you as your real friend to rely on. Regards MCRS News Team
A team that works together stays together!!! We are team MCRS!!
The Moutse community radio station popularly known by its listeners as “MCRS” held staff awards in honour of their best working employees. Miss MCRS Kamogelo Mohlala was the MC. Kamogelo Mohlala during her welcome address said “This awards ceremony is for thanking all the employees that worked very hard and to show that indeed we appreciate the hard work they put in” Mr. Mothwa(Marketing Department) said “We wish all the employees the best of luck and for those who will not be getting the awards, should have room for acceptance. Mr Martin Lebotse(Station Manager) said ” When a child works hard at home as a parent you show appreciation to that child and give him/her a token of appreciation. Just like in the comrade’s marathon they are all participants but not all of them are winners. We have those who made it and those who did not make it.” This award ceremony took time to honour the hardworking employees and to thank them by showing appreciation.
