SANZLive is an online radio station with a distinct South African flavour. South Africa NZ Live Radio was founded in April 2011. We are a community based radio channel broadcasting 24 x 7 worldwide. SANZLive Radio is owned and operated by volunteer radio hosts who have a passion for introducing South African culture to New Zealanders and vice versa.

Originally broadcasting every Saturday night on the network of Planet.FM 104.6, on 1 June 2019 we went live as an online internet based radio platform to share the love more worldwide.

The focus of the radio slot is to mainly play music, popular amongst South Africans that can also be enjoyed by others, bringing South Africans together through community events, community notices, broadcasting messages for loved ones and fundraisers for the community. The two hour radio slot was started because of the absence of a voice for the South African community in New Zealand.

The radio is funded by the owners in conjunction with fundraisers and sponsors within the community.

Presenter: Shireen Wallace

I was born in Cape Town, South Africa. I have lived in New Zealand for the last 15 years.  All our family is still in Cape Town, South Africa and only Deon, myself and our two girls, are in New Zealand. I love to read. I believe that family comes first. We should try to make a difference by being kind to one another.
