Stories from our reporters

RX Radio is a radio station run by and for children, operating from the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in Cape Town South Africa.* It is the first radio in the world to involve child/youth reporters broadcasting from within a hospital.


It is run by us - the RX Radio team - for the children and youth in the hospital, their parents/caregivers and hospital staff – and the public can listen to our broadcasts. Meet the Team


This radio community allows us - the children - and those who care for us to meet, share ideas, question others, tell stories, have fun and build a happy radio community network. Meet the RX Radio Reporters


The aim of the radio is to make us feel better and get better. We do this by bringing our families and friends together to talk, listen and act on things that are important to us. This we see as our right as children.
