Friday, July 21 2017 | NEW ERA ADVERT 27 AIRWAVES Weekly www.nbc.na 38 YEARS OF BROADCASTING QUALITY – WERNER KREBS Senior Content Quality Controller, Werner Krebs Retires after 38 years of Service. Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (nbc) employee Werner Krebs has been with the corporation for over 30 years. He started working at the nbc before independence, when it was known as the South West Africa Broadcasting Corporation (SWABC) before was changed to NBC today. He dedicated 38 years of his life to ensuring that programs are qualitatively assessed screened before broadcast. Born 24 June 1954, Krebs joined the corporation in June 1980, a time when only radio broadcasting existed. At the time, Krebs was employed in Main Control for radio services where his technical background came into play. Qualified in Electronic and Radio Theory from the then Wits Technikon in South Africa through correspondence in 1976, he first worked for a private radio station in Otjiwarongo. Krebs witnessed the arrival of the first ever cameras at the broadcaster in 1981. “I am till this very day humbled to have been part of the first ever official broadcast that took place at SWABC in the form of the ‘South West News’ broadcast,” he remembers. Krebs goes on to say that in that era, broadcasting was only done in Afrikaans, English and German and that he considers himself as fortunate to have witnessed the opening of the Oshakati Radio station and later the introduction of the various language services. He also formed part of the production team to record the live broadcast of Namibia’s very first Independence Day celebrations in 1990, Miss Universe 1995 and he was part of the team that received the broadcast of the Prince Charles wedding in 1981 via telephone lines. “After Independence, the workload increased immensely as I was also tasked with transferring footage from 1 inch tapes to Beta-cam tapes to allow people to purchase the Independence Day celebrations,” he recalls. Krebs was also responsible for transferring all video footage from analogue to digital for dubbing purposes and for ensuring that historical items were sent to the State archives. His duties to date include program assessment, doing quality checks, ensuring content is suitable and relevant for Namibians, safeguarding the nbc editorial policy and mandate as well as upholding the broadcaster’s image and professional standards of “responsible broadcasting. Krebs initially reached his retirement age in 2014 but the NBC asked him to stay on for few more years because his service was still critically needed. Krebs looks forward to looking after his aging mother during his retirement and focusing on his hobbies which include content editing. He further wishes the nbc all the best in all its endeavours, quoting South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) appointee, Nick Venter: “It is a brave thing to do, to start television in Namibia, because this country is very small, The Corporation’s main focus should be on advertising to generate revenue.” Krebs adds that this statement is still very relevant and applies to the current nbc to date. Werner Krebs during his employment with SWABC. nbc TAKES PRIORITY IN ENSURING ROAD SAFETY FOR STAFF What You Need to Know to Play Your Part & Pay Your TV License Chief Human Resources Officer, Vezenga Kauraisa addressing nbc staff on the importance of road safety. The Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (nbc) considers road safety a top priority for its employees. As proof of this, the corporation’s Wellness Day at the broadcaster’s head office on 18 July 2017 focussed exclusively on road safety. nbc employees were taken through a presentation by representatives of the Motor Vehicle Accident Fund (MVA). This presentation included a practical demonstration of how to ensure road safety before embarking on road trips. Tiger Wheel and Tyre showed the nbc staff how to change a tyre. “Road safety is a priority and this was a great opportunity to equip staff members with all the skills needed when driving or when being involved in a car accident. We used the platform to sensitise employees about the dangers of reckless driving and driving under the influence of alcohol. At nbc driving is the order of the day as our people travel long distances in search for content or business. Therefore, it is imperative for our personnel to know everything necessary to minimise chances of accidents and to ensure their safety at all times when driving,” remarked Chief Human Resources Officer, Vezenga Kauraisa. The MVA paramedic team performed a Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation to demonstrate to the nbc personnel how to correctly administer first aid to accident victims. This demonstration highlighted the importance of being careful when approaching accidents scenes and provided an insight into what one should and should not do when assisting accident victims. The nbc dedicates a lot of time and effort to ensuring the overall wellbeing of all its employees. The broadcaster engages its staff on a monthly basis, taking a holistic approach to all personnel-related issues as it considers human resources to be of utmost importance.
