CapeTalk is a commercial AM radio station based in Cape Town, South Africa, broadcasting on AM/MW 567 to Cape Town. The station is also webcast via its website. It claims to be Cape Town's number one news and talk station, offering news, sport, business and actuality programming, with a high proportion of its airtime filled with phone-in debates. It was established in 1997. The station is owned by Primedia.
The station first broadcast at 06h00 on Tuesday, 14 October 1997 by John Maytham from their offices on Bree Street. From the start the station sought to position its self to provide an independent forum for Capetonians to swap ideas and voice opinions. Former presenters include the former Sunday Times columnist Jani Allan between 1997 and 2000.
The studios are now located at Suite 7d, Somerset Square, Highfield Road, Greenpoint, Cape Town. The station relocated in 2006 after its sister station KFM became a subsidiary of Primedia (PTY) Ltd. and bigger premises were needed to house both stations in one building.
