Date: Apr 8, 2018

new presenters joining the SAfm Family

SAfm remains a radio station with the largest footprint in South Africa, and it is important to refresh, strengthen and rotate talent to ensure maximum output. The station believes its existing talent and with the augmentation of new personalities, it will remain relevant and ultimately deliver on audience numbers.

The new line-up presents much needed rotation of talent within, and we are excited to announce Stephen Grootes, Ernest Pillay, and Thabiso Mosia as new presenters joining the SAfm Family!

From Monday, the 09th of April 2018, listeners can look forward to the #SAfmSunrise with Stephen Grootes from 06:00-09:00 weekdays. The show promises to be hard-hitting, informative, and will ease audiences into the day ahead.  Following that is no stranger to the station Bongi Gwala, on The Talking Point from 09:00 – 12:00 with in depth discussions on days topical issues. Criselda Dudumashe brings her well rounded approach to daytime radio between 13:00 - 15:00 weekdays.

Ernest Pillay joins the SAfm family to present the afternoon show from 15:00 – 18:00. He brings to the show his wealth of experience as a seasoned presenter spanning over 25 years.

SAfm Market Update with Money web provides in-depth analysis on the business and topical economic news between 18:00 – 19:00. Thabiso Mosia kicks in from 19:00 – 20:00 with key sports matters of the day. Ashraf Garda will then unpack socio- political matters on Monday to Thursday from 20:00 – 22:00.

SAfm weekends will never be the same, now with more music and less talk presented by seasoned broadcasters such as Michelle Constant, Shado Twala, Rowena Baird and Ricky Stevens to list a few.

The station recognises the holistic pivotal role played by news and current affairs. The current affairs programmes will be presented by Tsepiso Makwetla delivering the morning instalment between 05h00 and 06h00 weekdays whilst  Sakina Kamwendo continues with in-depth discussions and breaking stories midday from 12h00-13h00. Elvis Presslin will present the weekend slots between 06h00-07h00.

“We invite South Africa to tune in on the 9th of April 2018 and enjoy what SAfm has to offer.  We wish all our  presenters the best and have no doubt that they will make a meaningful contribution to ensure that SAfm dominates the airwaves as a national talk radio station in South Africa”, Peter Mashamba, Acting Station Manager.
