947 apologises for any offense caused by #ShowUsYour947 image
Saturday 4 October 2014
947 apologises for any offense that was caused by the online publication of a listener-generated image that highlighted many issues of Joburg life, some of which have sparked negative reaction.
The image won the station's #ShowUsYour947 competition. The competition called on listeners to share their images of what 947 meant to them. Hundreds of images were nominated and the public was asked to vote online for their favourite.
The winner was the entry with the most votes, as per the rules of the competition. This was announced on Friday 3rd October during the Breakfast Xpress show.
The station has subsequently received some negative feedback on the image and wishes to apologise for any offense caused by any part of the image.
Out of respect to those offended, the image has been removed from the 947 website. "947 has always been and continues to be highly aware that road safety is a very real and sometimes devastating problem. The station will continue to highlight and promote road safety in general and the safety of our cycling community in particular," said 947 station manager, Ravi Naidoo.
