So, listen up…
There’s been quite a lot of things happening in the world of radio over the past couple of months, and I thought let me just put you up to speed with the latest. Now, here’s the tea… BEWARE, it’s hot!
Since the last time I gave you guys the scoop on the broadcasting world that keeps getting blows from all sides, whether its programme managers disrespecting their listeners with celebrities on radio thinking it’ll aid up numbers or the online radio stations that keep popping up every two minutes, this medium has seen it all.
So, recently there’s been a public spat between station owner, T-Bo Touch and presenter Glen Lewis about his sacking from Touch HD, it got black Twitter really excited – I mean we love drama. Lewis has since on joined Radio 2000 along with former Metro FM sports presenter, Robert Marawa.
A couple of weeks ago MSG Afrika owned station, Capricorn FM made a new line-up announcement. The Limpopo based station has a new breakfast show featuring Skhumbuzo Mbatha and Kea Motlokwa. In the same breath, Capricorn FM’s sister station, Power987 (Power FM) saw the announcement that the new boss in the office, former Kaya FM breakfast host, Bob Mabena will take over the talk station’s breakfast slot.
Meanwhile, Comedienne, Tumi Morake left Jacaranda FM after just a few months as the co-host of the breakfast show with Martin Bester. Morake has a lot to say about her departure from the Kagiso Media-owned station, and it’s not good. I knew she wasn’t going to last, only a few black people would. The station is NOT black presenters friendly. We all know it.
Now we wait for the new radio season for some drama and all that comes with it.
