On Air Conference update

Posted by radio On April - 1 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Programme update!

redioconf

Radio is a larger-than-life medium, because its screen is the human brain. No other medium offers the opportunity to exercise creativity and to ignite the listener’s imagination. We review and discuss some of the best local radio spots and inspire you to demand more than a mere jingle and phone number or website from your radio creative team.  Andy Rice chairs a panel discussion with Zwelakhe Tshabangu, Executive Creative Director at Africa Red Communications; Donovan Bryan, Executive Creative Director at OwenKessel Leo Burnett Communications and Jenny Glover, Creative Director at TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris.

 

Internet radio vs Broadcast radio – some see Internet radio as the next big thing – a new way of delivering content to a very broad audience. Others see it as being limited and not a viable business opportunity. Where are the gaps that Internet radio fills, that traditional radio is not serving? Experts and pioneers make a case for their own business models and share their views on the future of radio and content delivery. Join Gareth Cliff, Founder of Cliff Central, Darren Scott, Director of XVR Ballz Radio and Greg Maloka, Managing Director at KayaFM in a panel discussion.

Shireen Robinson has been appointed as Head of Sales at Heart 104.9FM and assumed her role on 1 March 2015. Robinson comes with more than 10 years of experience in the industry which includes project management in sales, marketing, sponsorships and events.

With over 10 years project management experience in sales, marketing, sponsorships and events across all South African commercial radio stations; she has an in-depth grasp of the national media landscape. Importantly in this changing environment, her work in agency and direct sales depended on forging integrated campaigns with digital, creative, activation, and PR agencies.

 

Shireen also offers an empathetic understanding of the exigencies that business faces in a difficult economy. Her work has produced measurable growth for clients with genuinely small budgets, and also stand-out Return On Investment for multinationals; judiciously planning the use of multi-million Rand budgets to best effect.

 

This holistic understanding of the terrain saw her take up a role as an adjudicator for the MTN Radio Awards in both 2014 and 2015. Shireen’s personal passion for producing meaningful content, and her belief in the need for digital convergence make her the perfect person to lead our team as we take your brand to the next level.

MTN Radio Awards Nominees announced

Posted by radio On March - 24 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

The extensive adjudication process of the MTN Radio Awards has been completed. It took the adjudication panel approximately 2500 hours of listening to submissions to complete the process of adjudicating and scoring all the entries, to determine the best of the best in South African radio.

MTN rad

“We received a bumper crop of entries this year and adjudication was tough, but thorough,” says Lance Rothschild, CEO of the MTN Radio Awards. “The finalists are definitely the cream of the crop from this year’s entries, and I believe that this year’s finalists have set a high standard for the industry as a whole.”

 

“Our title sponsorship of the MTN Radio Awards was borne out of our relationship with, and commitment to, the radio industry,” says Larry Annetts, Chief Marketing officer of MTN South Africa. “It’s a fact that radio played an integral part in the launch of MTN some 21 years ago, and that it is still a key element in our media communications strategy. At MTN, we’re thrilled to see the high standards of excellence in South African radio. On behalf of all at MTN, I extend my congratulations to the finalists and to all the entrants in the 2015 MTN Radio Awards.”

 

The finalists in the Station of the Year category, as well as the inductees for Bright Stars, Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achiever will be announced on 31 March. The finalist in the My Station listener competition will be announced on 8 April.

Ligwalagwala FM revamps shows

Posted by radio On March - 19 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

It has become a norm that radio experiences some changes in April every year. Ligwalagwala FM listeners can expect some changes to the programme line up mainly on the drive shows. There will be a couple of shifts and mergers aimed at bringing some flair into the on air offering of Mpumalanga’s leading radio station. The shift in talent has also necessitated an adjustment to the lengths of some shows. Listeners can however rest assured that all shows will retain their names.

ligwa

Mornings will not be the same again on kusile Mzansi, the breakfast show currently presented by the award winning DJ Madumane.  Joining Madumane in the morning will be the multitalented radio and TV extraordinaire Mpumi Mbhethe. Mpumi moves from co-hosting the afternoon drive show (Asambe Drive Show) with Shabbisto to the breakfast show (Kusile Mzansi) with effect from the first of April 2015. Kusile Mzansi will now have a dedicated team that will also include Mancane and Shukuma Lukhele who will do the kiddies programme and sports bulletin respectively.

 

Mpumi’s shoes in the afternoon Drive show will be filled by the vibrant Nobuhle Ndlovu who moves from doing the weekly midnight slot. She will be Shabbisto’s new co-host on Asambe drive show every weekday from 3-6PM. Senzo Mashego will present the Sport bulletins.

 

Another exciting addition to the programme line up is that of a Hip hop hour. Something that a sizeable amount of the station’s listeners have been calling upon. Fortune Ntekati’s The Zone will now dedicate the hour of 18:00 – 19:00 every Saturday to hip hop. “We are repackaging the brand in line with consumers demands, the media space is evolving and the station is part of this evolution, these changes aim primarily at giving dominance to the voice of women during prime time and at the same time boost our listenership targets” said Mr Rio Mabunda, Ligwalagwala FM Station Manager.

 

Lilgwalagwala FM turns 33 in April and there we have a mammoth music concert to celebrate this landmark in the growth of the SiSwati station. Much like the music offering on the station the birthday music concert will incorporate music performances of all genres from Hip Hop, Kwaito, House, Maskandi and Gospel music. Lucrative prizes on air will be the order of the month, listeners must stay glued to the station to find out more.

 

Shows affected with changes:

Time Show Name Presenter 
00H00 – 03H00, weekdays Asikalali Silalele Carol Malumane
06H30 – 10H00 Monday – Friday Kusile Mzansi Madumane with Mpumi Mbethe and (Shukuma Lukhele for sport bulletin)
15H00 – 18H00 Monday – Friday Asambe Drive Show DJ Shabba with Buhle Ndlovu and (Senzo Mashego for sport bulletin)
19H00 – 20H00 Tuesday & Wednesday Sport Talk Mduduzi “Iron” Ntiwane

On Air Radio Conference menu

Posted by radio On March - 18 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

The On Air Radio Conference is a must attend event for those who programme radio, sell radio or buy radio airtime.

radioconf

These are just two of the session’s lined-up for the On Air Radio Conference.  Don’t miss out, book your seat now.

 

Programme manager’s mandate – a panel discussion touching on issues like managing talent, getting the line-up right, achieving optimum station sound and the tricky and sometimes tense relationship with the sales team all whilst managing client and listener expectations. David O’ Sullivan hosts a discussion on the business of radio with General Manager for OFM, Nick Efstathiou; Programme Manager at East Coast Radio, Zane Derbyshire;  Ravi Naidoo, Station Manager at 94.7 Highveld Stero and Ferdinand Mabalane, GM: Programming at Times Media.

 

 

 

POPI – What are the implications for radio stations? – they accumulate a substantial amount of information about their listeners through several forms of interaction including competitions, research, merchandise sales, loyalty programmes etc. This information is invaluable to the station, however Protection of Personal Information legislation dictates not only how the personal information may be used, but also how it needs to be protected and stored. Okyerebea Ampofo-Anti, Snr. Associate at Webber Wentzel, gives us the low down.

OFM to introduce new shows

Posted by radio On March - 17 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

INN (OFM) VATION OFM, the sound of central South Africa, will introduce changes to the already popular on-air presenter line-up in April with new shows, engaging innovations and a few new voices.

ofmlogo

Says Nick Efstathiou, OFM General Manager: “We have a rich history of great talent who has worked in our studios. In March we say farewell to legends of central South Africa radio. However, we welcome a few new voices to OFM and are excited at the innovative changes to some of our programmes that will bring a refreshing new dynamic to our product offering for our listeners and our clients.”

 

Yolanda Maartens will be joining André Kunz as co-host of the Breakfast Special weekdays from 6am. Yolanda has presented ‘A Slice of Life’ weekdays from 12pm for the past few years, proving herself more than up to the challenge of joining a breakfast show. Presenter Cyril Viljoen will move from after midnight to take over from 12pm. Cyril is a great asset to the station and will also present the OFM Top 10 at 10 on Saturdays from 10am.

 

Isabel Venter and Samantha Wrightson will host the 09:00 to 12:00 program.

 

The evergreen James Kilbourn will present Before Dawn weekdays from 05:00 to 06:00. A new recruit, Zelda Goetz will present midnight to 03:00 from Monday to Friday. Another new voice to the station is Duncan Bayne, who will join the Siesta team weekdays from 15:00 to 19:00 as a producer. He will replace Enriko Klopper, who will continue presenting weekdays from 19:00 to 22:00. Enriko will be joined by another new voice, Lerato Leila, who will bring a feminine touch to the show. Lerato will also get the party started on Saturdays from 19:00 to midnight.

 

The Jeremy Mansfield Radio Show will join the OFM line-up on Sundays from 19:00 with Pieter Venter presenting the innovative ‘This Week on OFM.co.za’ from 21:00. The show is aimed at highlighting the engaging, informative and entertaining content the on-air team place on South Africa’s fourth largest radio station webpage.

 

“We have a great team of radio professionals engaged in what they do – falling in love with our listeners, creating content that stirs emotion and playing good music all day! I hope that our listeners will be excited by the product offering. New innovative on-air executions are about to be placed on the station. I would advise you tune in. You will love it!” says Efstathiou.

On Air Radio Conference : Line-Up

Posted by radio On March - 12 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Within the next three years, radio advertising revenue in South Africa is expected to pass R6-billion.

And as much as radio has always been under threat by other platforms it is the last mass-reach, real-time media platform and remains attractive to both big spending brands and mom and pop businesses that have something important to say.

radioconf

Right now in a country where less than 20% of households will have broadband connectivity by 2018, 90% of the adult population are reached by radio.

The On Air Radio Conference is a must attend event for those who programme radio, sell radio or buy radio airtime.

 

Our line-up will cover:

 

  • Creative radio advertising – the lifeblood of any successful advert, campaign or investment. We hear from a leading creative director followed by a critique of current radio advertising by a panel of experts. How to design an effective radio campaign; how to brief the agency or station; how to judge a good and a bad radio spot.
  • How to buy radio easily? Some dissenters say it’s becoming too fragmented with the proliferation of stations. Some say it’s getting too expensive. An interactive panel discussion with leading media agencies will look at building real synergies between a good radio campaign and complementary media as well as the art and science of promotions and sponsorship.
  • Voices of veterans – legends of radio have a wealth of experience in the radio industry. Their love for the medium endures and, being radio people, they love to reminisce and provide their thoughts on how the industry has changed and where it is going. The discussion will also look at the changes in technology and where they see the future of radio and in particular, the role of on-air talent in a rapidly evolving industry.
  • Programme manager’s mandate – a panel discussion touching on issues like managing talent, getting the line-up right, achieving optimum station sound and the tricky and sometimes tense relationship with the sales team all whilst managing client and listener expectations.
  • Internet radio vs Broadcast radio – some see Internet radio as the next big thing – a new way of delivering content to a very broad audience. Others see it as being limited and not a viable business opportunity. Where are the gaps that Internet radio fills, that traditional radio is not serving? Experts and pioneers make a case for their own business models and share their views on the future of radio and content deliver

OFM says goodbye to stalwart presenters

Posted by radio On March - 12 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

OFM SAYS GOODBYE TO STALWART PRESENTERS At the end of March, OFM will say goodbye to three of its top presenters, who have decided to pursue different careers.

Christie Hansen, who has been with the station for 17 years, will leave OFM at the end of March 2015.

 

Hansen has decided to retire from commercial radio to pursue his business affairs. He will, however, continue to be part of the Grain SA radio team during the Nampo Harvest Day in May.  He will also work with OFM on another exciting project later this year.

 

Christie is currently the host of the popular early morning programme, Before Dawn between 04:00 and 06:00. He also presents the Hansen Saturday show on Saturdays between 09:00 and 13:00.

 

“His amazing ability to adapt to any audience has made him a huge asset to the company.  He has also amassed a loyal following, especially among our older listeners, who no doubt will miss him,” says Nick Efstathiou, General Manager.

 

Miss Weekend, Mardi Delport, has also decided to focus on her career at the Central University of Technology.  Mardi has woken up central South Africa on the weekend since 2003.  She presents the weekend breakfast shows on Saturday and Sunday from 6:00 to 09:00.

 

“It was an incredible privilege to be part of the OFM team for eleven years. I will definitely miss my weekends on air with central South Africa – all the phone calls and messages from listeners across the region.  Radio brings one into contact with many interesting people with different personalities and interests.  It allows you to learn a lot about people, life and yourself.  The most important lesson I was taught by radio, was to talk less and listen more.”

 

Finally, the much loved Johrné van Huyssteen has decided to move to Johannesburg to pursue his career in radio and television.  Johrné only joined the station in 2011, but has amassed a loyal following and has proven to be extremely popular with listeners.

 

Says Johrné:  “After an unplanned career in music, television and magazines, OFM opened a radio door for me four years ago.  I think back with shaking hands to the first shows, and after fantastic mentorship and guidance I can say with confidence that radio is in my blood.  I will miss the dynamic team and every OFM listener immensely.  Thank you for lending me your ears.”

 

According to Nick Efstathiou, OFM General Manager, all these presenters will be sorely missed.  “Christie and Mardi especially have given OFM years of service, dedication and commitment and for that we are extremely grateful. Johrne has equally been an integral part of OFM’s development and growth over the past few years and has added immense value to our product offering.  We wish these presenters all the best with their future endeavours and look forward to exciting new changes at OFM.”
