Just less than a year at 5FM, Frankie du Toit is leaving the SABC station to join Primedia’s 947. Just over a year ago du Toit left Jacaranda FM for 5FM.
His move to 5FM was a bit questionable, the station is no longer relevant, and numbers don’t lie. It is reported that Frankie is going to co-host the 947 breakfast show with fan favourite, Anele Mdoda. This follows a recently announced lineup change at 947. This will see Anele moving to the breakfast show, while Darren “Whackhead” Simpson will occupy the afternoon drive slot.
5FM recently also lost its long time DJ, record producer and businessman, Themba Nkosi affectionately known as Euphonik. Themba’s move followed the departure of another long time DJ, Poppy Ntshongwana. All the DJs mentioned above left 5FM for 947.
Is 947 poaching 5FM DJs?
