  • The show will focus on bringing about change and driving solutions through conversations.

  • The first and second episodes will unpack the triggers and trauma of rape through the stories of three incredible young women.

  • The first two shows will interrogate the idea that South Africans do not understand consent.

  • Perspective on Y will explore legal structures available for victims of rape, the criminal justice system’s resources and shortcomings.

  • The conversation will end with a discussion on the way in which boy children are being raised.

 

YFM 99.2, Gauteng’s number one youth station is launching a one-of-a-kind talk show – Perspective on Y. The hard-hitting show will air between 7pm and 9pm every second Thursday, starting on 9 July.

The first two episodes of Perspective on Y will focus on the prevalent and very serious issue of rape, its consequences, victims and the people behind the laws that are meant to protect. The Perspective on Y, rape episodes, will be hosted by guest presenter and YFM news editor, Mfundo Mabalane.

 

“There are several burning issues in our country that need honest conversations but, more importantly, solution-driven conversations. Perspective on Y will be that platform. This generation must play its part in the deconstruction of a society, which has enabled a culture of violence against women and children, corruption, and injustice against the marginalised,” says Mabalane.

The Perspective project is a concept created by YFM’s weekday producers, who are also at the helm of their respective daytime shows. This is the team behind Y Mornings, Krunch with Khutso, The Shakedown, The Best Drive, Anathi’s Nights on Y and Y Talks. The group has teamed up to share their talents and editorial skills on this latest addition to the YFM programming lineup.

 

Taking the reins as senior producer of the first Perspective episodes is Lumko Johnson, who also produces Anathi’s Nights on Y.

Johnson is a Wits University-trained creative content specialist, who over a career spanning close to 10 years, has conceptualised content solutions in the urban youth space, for television, digital advertising as well as radio.

 

Episode one

Expect a raw and frank discussion about rape and the subjects that underline it. Mabalane will be joined by three experts who have worked extensively in the space of gender-based violence and the show will address multiple talking points such as rape culture, structures and resources available for victims, trauma and triggers, toxic masculinity as well as the psyche and/or pathology of South African men that incite violent behaviour towards women.

 

Date and time: Thursday, 9 July 2020, 7pm–9pm.

 

Episode two

Here, the topic of gender-based violence will remain front-and-centre, with the focus on consent. Joining Mabalane in the studio will be a panel of guests sharing their stories, including the devastating and traumatic impact the abuse has had on their personal lives and the experience of someone refusing to hear the word no. Accompanying them will be credible voices from the legal, justice, and psychology fraternities to explore the topic even further. There will be a discussion on the Sex Offenders Register, its purpose in our society, and ways in which the general public can gain access to it.

 

Date and time: Thursday, 23 July 2020, 7pm– 9pm.

Says YFM’s MD, Haseena Cassim: “The effects of gender-based violence can be life-long. We want to use our platform to create a safe space to provide some kind of guidance about how to deal with the horrors of this type of violence. This show is one that we are very proud of at YFM and hope that we can make a difference in our listeners’ lives by offering a voice to those who need it most.”

 

In the following months, many other topics and themes will be tackled and produced by YFM’s top brains behind some of the great content that is heard on YFM.

 

The show plans to educate listeners by tackling a wide range of social issues affecting the South African youth by having frank and honest discussions on air. Each episode will feature well-informed guests, thought leaders and credible experts to discuss the issues and solutions.

 

Listeners are encouraged to join in the conversation by sending any questions, comments, or relevant stories on the YFM app or YFM’s social media channels.

5FM makes changes on station line-up

Posted by radio On May - 1 - 2020 ADD COMMENTS

5FM yesterday announced their changes to the presenter line-up for 2020.

The station will continue to focus on a strong music offering in addition to nurturing all current on-air talent listeners have grown accustomed to. The changes reflect the 5FM teams’ tenacity to maintain the station as an entertainment powerhouse and multimedia brand through incredibly talented presenters, carefully curated on-air and digital content. All while remaining on trend and with its’ finger on the pulse.

The Roger Goode Show (Monday – Friday, 06:00 – 09:00) has already introduced Zanele Potelwa, (a.k.a. Young Boomerang) to listeners. Zanele, who’s been the digital expert within the team, will take on a permanent role as the show’s traffic reporter as well as continue as one of the station’s digital producers.

 

Afternoon drive listeners will hear familiar voices – Nick Hamman along with Nadia Romanos on News, Jude
van Wyk on Sport, and newcomer Bibi Mbangula on Traffic – who has been part of the station’s digital team – will accompany listeners home on 5 Drive, weekdays 15:00 – 18:00.

 

 

Taking over from Nick (weekdays, 09:00 – 12:00) is Stephanie B and Msizi James. This means that Justin Toerien will continue to host Music Capital (Monday – Thursday, 22:00 – 01:00) on his own. Smash Afrika gets an additional hour to his show 5FM Nights, as he takes over from 18:00 – 22:00. The ever popular and now legendary Ultimix at 6 will get the Smash treatment and have new life breathed into it.

 

 

Programme Manager Siyanda Fikelephi says that this decision was taken because as a youthful brand 5FM wants to continue being trend-setters in both current and relevant content to young adults. When the 5Squad was announced last year, the station introduced listeners to a host of young people from various parts of the country who each held down one day of the week on the 01:00 – 04:00 slot. “We are proud that a year later we have identified potential in young radio broadcasters, absorbing them into our lineup to address other regional strategies,” says Siyanda.

 

Tulani Madala was one of those talented five and will be taking over the slot for the whole week, while his Cape Town counterpart Marilize du Plessis takes over All Night Music (01:00 – 04:00) on the weekends. Durban-based 5Squad member Leah Jazz takes over The Recovery Zone on weekends 04:00 – 07:00.

 

 

Seasoned Sport reporter Duran Collett finds a new home on the weekends alongside host Nicole da Silva and newsreader Sibs Matiyela on 5FM XL Mornings, 07:00 – 10:00. The 5FM Weekender5 who maintain the strong and cutting-edge music offering will see some minor show changes which include a new show for Ms Cosmo. She gets an additional show on Saturdays from 17:00 –19:00, which means that Ryan the DJ’s show 5tarting from 5cratch moves up an hour from 19:00 – 22:00. The Kyle Cassim Show then follows on from 22:00 – 01:00.

Posted by radio On April - 18 - 2020 ADD COMMENTS

Winners of The Radio Awards 2020 were celebrated in an online awards ceremony hosted by popular comedian Loyiso Madinga on Friday 17 April 2020. The Radio Awards, now in its tenth year, is the leading recognition platform for celebrating outstanding talent in the South African radio industry.

 

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE WINNERS LIST (Winners highlighted in yellow)

This year’s Station of the Year Awards went to Kaya 95.9 FM (Commercial), Hot 91.9 FM (Community), Radio 2000 (PBS), and Tuks 107.2 FM (Campus). Winners were determined by the number of times they appeared as a finalist across all general categories of The Radio Awards. Each of the finalists submitted a further motivation which spoke to the station’s innovation, audience growth, community outreach, general achievements, as well as their “x-factor”. This motivation was then scored by The Radio Awards advisory panel. This score accounted for the first half of a station’s final score, and the second half of the final score was determined by a station’s success in the other categories.

“Congratulations to all of the finalists, and especially the winners for producing dynamic, captivating radio for the South African listening audience,” says Taryn Westoby, Head of Arena Events which manages The Radio Awards. “It’s been a challenging period in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, and making The Radio Awards happen this year – albeit on an online platform – has meant that the tireless work of radio stations around the country can be highlighted at a time when good news is really welcomed.”

A record number of entries (more than 2 000) were received from a record number of stations (more than 160) in this year’s edition of The Radio Awards. Entries were adjudicated by a team of 54 judges, and reviewed by BDO South Africa, the newly appointed auditors for The Radio Awards.

 

More than 80 award winners were celebrated across 25 categories. Seven Bright Stars were announced, and five industry stalwarts were inducted into the Hall of Fame, including Brian Oxley, Gabriel Urgoiti, Neil Johnson, Peter Wise and Rev. Prince Zulu.

 

In the two listener’s choice categories, the My Station Most Votes Award went to Ligwalagwala FM, which received the most online votes from the listening public. The My Station Loyal Listeners Award went to Hot 91.9 FM for receiving the most public votes as a ratio against its RAMS figures.

 

This was also the first year for the Station Manager’s Choice Award – an award recognising the contributions made by behind-the-scenes station employees. The inaugural award was presented to two individuals: Marika de Jongh of OFM, and Linda van Schalkwyk of Pretoria FM.

The recipient of The Radio Awards Bursary Award is Nthapeleng “Tsholo” Moteka

 

“This year’s awards would not have happened as successfully without the firm commitment from numerous individuals. We’d like to thank the members of our advisory board, the adjudication panel, BDO South Africa and members of the NAB for giving of their time to ensure The Radio Awards remain relevant, credible and independent. A high bar has been set for 2021, and we look forward to the year ahead,” concludes Westoby.

 

 

 

For those who may have missed the online announcement, Business Day TV (DStv 412) will re-broadcast the announcement on television on Saturday 18 April (16h00 and 21h00), and Sunday 19 April (16h00 and 21h00).

To retain its position as the coolest radio station in the country, METRO FM, which is one of the South African Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC) Public Broadcasting Commercial (PBC) radio stations, will continue to focus on ensuring delivery of quality and cutting-edge content and services. Based on the 2019 successes, that saw the station delivering its highest audience figures in four (4) years, the station plans to maintain the current line-up with a few minor additions.

‘The Morning Flava’, hosted by Mo Flava (Moeti Tsiki) and the MOP team, will continue to set the daily scene weekdays between 05:00 and 09:00. The show is followed by ‘The Bridge’ with Dineo Ranaka, Lerato Kganyago and Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung from 09:00 to 12:00.

New voices, fresh new vibe on Algoa FM!

Posted by radio On February - 5 - 2020 ADD COMMENTS
Listeners and advertisers have welcomed a new Algoa FM line-up that includes exciting new voices, and a fresh sound, says managing director Alfie Jay.

This refresh and new energy celebrates Algoa FM’s move to its own iconic purpose-developed building in Port Elizabeth’s trendy Baakens Valley.

“We are capitalising on the excitement about having our own building for the first time in the 34 years since Algoa FM first started broadcasting,” says Jay, who has been in the broadcasting industry for 30 of those years.

“Our music mix has been given a tweak together with new on air imaging and some other changes to refresh the sound,” adds programme manager Baydu Adams.

On weekdays listeners wake up to Algoa Country’s favourite early morning voice, Siobhan Momberg, who is on air from 5-6am weekdays.

Multi award-winning broadcaster Wayne Hart has joined Charlton Tobias and Lee Duru “in an all-new breakfast show adventure, which promises to entertain listeners with some fresh and interactive radio.

“The team know each other well, and the energy and creativity that sparks in the room when they are together is really energising – just what is needed first thing in the morning while preparing for a day at work,” says Jay.

Mio Khondleka and KayCee Rossouw have traded morning weekday slots.
“From 9am-12pm Mio provides some mid-morning magic for listeners, with KayCee hosting us through lunch until three in the afternoon.

“We have added more vooma to the high-octane Afternoon Drive where Roland Gaspar has teamed up with Roch-Lè Bloem,” says Jay.

There are two parallel Afternoon Drive transmitter splits serving the Garden Route, with Lance du Plessis, and the greater Buffalo City metro with Brian Ndevu.

The two evening shows with Queenie Grootboom Khondleka and Vinny Nogemane have proven extremely popular with listeners and “if it ain’t broke… don’t fix it, so we have not made any changes there,” says Jay.

The station is also attracting national talent.

Among the new broadcasters is Linda Nzuzo, who started her broadcasting career in Port Elizabeth and was most recently on Kaya FM, after stints with Tru FM, Bay FM and Nkqubela FM.

“Algoa FM has also introduced some fresh voices to our highly-acclaimed news team.

“Two-time Vodacom Regional Journalist of the Year Award Winner, Siyabonga Sesant, who is originally from Port Elizabeth, is on duty behind the news mic from early until mid-day during the week.

“Siyabonga is a sought-after freelance radio and television news journalist who has spent many hours refining his craft on 5FM, Eye Witness News, eNCA and Newzroom Afrika.

“Popular Algoa FM presenter, Roch-Lè Bloem takes over the hot seat from Siyabonga from the one-o-clock news report and sees us through to the end of the afternoon drive with Roland Gaspar.

Popular broadcaster and sports fundi Mio Khondleka kicks off Saturday mornings from six till nine with the Saturday breakfast.
Next is the popular award-winning Top 30 with Wayne Hart from nine till noon.

He is followed by Nzuzo, who “brings an authoritative yet smooth vibe to the Saturday lunch-time show from 12-3pm.

“Then we unite the province with East London-based Brian Ndevu and Briony Sparg from Port Elizabeth, who team up in a show which crosses the divide between the eastern and western halves of the Eastern Cape and Garden Route.

Another new voice is Jean-Pierre Botha (JP), who is on air from seven till ten on Saturdays.

He is the former breakfast show presenter of community station Bay FM.

The Sunday line-up starts with Roch-Lè Bloem, who says she wants to keep listeners “calm but motivated.”

Lance du Plessis continues to present the very popular “Sounds of Time” from 9am-midday, followed by Charl Leslie.

“From 3-7pm KayCee Rossouw continues with his Sunday Soul, another show that is a hit with our listeners.

“The rest of the day is unchanged, with Queenie Grootboom Khondleka on air from seven till ten, followed by Vinny Nogemane.”

In addition to a new iconic building and fresh on air sound, the station has also re-launched its new responsive and mobile friendly website: www.algoafm.co.za

Kaya FM shakes up mid-day radio with seasoned broadcaster Unathi Nkayi

 

Kaya FM names composer, performer, broadcaster and television producer Unathi Nkayi as the host of the newly revamped Monday-Thursday; 12:00-15:00 slot.  On her new show Nkayi will lead conversations that are attuned with the lives of Afropolitans, while continuing to serve listeners with the unique music offering that the Home of the Afropolitan is known for. Nkayi’s appointment comes in line with the station’s commitment to leading new trends in broadcast media. Her first show will go live on the 2nd of March 2020.

 

Nkayi makes her return to radio after a short hiatus and her trajectory spans almost twenty years on the airwaves. Her recent time off radio saw her hosting Moja Love’s popular Show Me Love, while most fans know her as the beloved judge on Idols South Africa. Most recently, Nkayi released her memoir, I Keep Learning (Sifiso Publishers), to critical acclaim. The book, which is co-authered by Kabomo Vilakazi, is an intimate look at the trials and triumphs of her life. In her book, she tells a story of how she is raised by Africa and living as a global citizen – which makes her a quintessential Afropolitan. The multi-talented powerhouse is an outlier in the entertainment industry and has stunned her audiences with her many hit singles including Halo Sana which is currently on high rotation. Nkayi is a Rhodes University Journalism and Drama graduate, and a University of Utrecht International Media Studies graduate.

 

 

 

“I am deeply inspired to get to work with an on air team that I have admired and loved for years and to have a team that supports the vision of greatness. I look forward to having intergenerational conversations, cultural and musical exchanges but most importantly I look forward to learning from our listeners. To work at a station that truly celebrates the continent and everything Afropolitan can only be alchemy. Here is to a new dawn. Camagu! ” expressed Nkayi on her new appointment at the station.

This new show will grant us yet another opportunity to use our platform as a global instrument for the advancement of Africa-centric content, with a particular focus on the aspects of art, travel and lifestyle.
