    Bibliographical note

    This book is part of the 'Internationalising Media Studies' series edited by Daya Kishan Thussu. Author's note:• Radio’s significance is borne by the fact that, on average, the medium is accessed by nearly 80% of the population – including in the rural areas – so the analysis in this article shows that the changing media landscape does not necessarily undermine radio/audio medium.
    • Based on this article, the author was invited to give a presentation titled ‘Teaching Audio/Radio Journalism in the 21st Century: Technologies, Ethics and Identity Politics’ at the Africa-UK Journalism Education Exchange Network at the University of Bedfordshire in mid April 2012, under the auspices of UNESCO’s International Programme for the Development of Communication (http://www.unesco-ci.org/ipdcprojects/content/africa-uk-journalism-education-exchange-network).
    Rigour
    • The article moves from the general context of convergence and radio/audio medium to the African context – taking mainly an analytical approach based primarily on desk research.
    Originality
    • This article applies convergence theory to radio, which is a rare approach – especially in application to the African context.
