The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has refuted the claims made by Sunday World.

The article was titled ‘Metro FM gets Tbo Touch back at R480 000 per month’.

The public broadcaster rejected this misinformation saying it’s misleading.


SABC’s GCEO does not get involved in line up negotiations.

In addition, it was revealed that the SABC does not pay car allowances and other fringe benefits to freelancers.

Moreso, SABC’s radio stations are guided by EXCO approved standardised freelance rates, which would not see anyone earning even half of the amount quoted in the newspaper.

Lastly, it was also mentioned that independent contractors do not get involved in soliciting sales and sponsorship.

This is because SABC does not have a commission scheme that covers individuals outside of Sales staff.
