Q: 3 organisations that control and regulate the media in South Africa
A: The media of South Africa has a large mass media sector and is one of Africa's major media centres. [ While South Africa's many broadcasters and publications reflect the diversity of the population as a whole, the most commonly used language is English. However, all ten other official languages are represented to some extent or another. Afrikaans is the second most commonly used language,
especially in the publishing sector.Television is the most tightly regulated media sector in South Africa and is (along with radio) regulated by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA). Broadcast rights, especially for television, are issued by invitation only and only two independent television broadcasters have been permitted to operate up to now. Broadcast licenses mandate percentages of local, community and educational content and broadcasters are required to include such content as a condition of their license.Radio has always been South Africa's biggest broadcast medium and the sector's deregulation in 1996 led to an even bigger proliferation of radio stations. For example, there are about 40 radio stations available to Johannesburg listeners. South Africa's mass market station Ukhozi FM broadcasts nationwide and is by far the most popular, appealing to isiZulu-speaking South Africans with 6.38 million listeners per week.The history of newspapers in South Africa dates back to 1800, when the governor of the Cape Colony initiated the publishing of the government-controlled Cape Town Gazette and African Advertiser. The first privately owned newspaper, the SA Commercial Advertiser was published in 1824, with Thomas Pringle and John Fairbairn as editors. The first Dutch language newspaper, De Zuid Afrikaan, was published in 1830, the first African language newspaper, Umshumayeli Wendaba, in 1837 and the first Afrikaans language newspaper, Die Afrikaanse Patriot, in 1876.The current newspaper industry is in a fairly healthy state. ]
