A “consistent” decline in listeners has led to major reshuffling at uMhlobo Wenene FM’s afternoon drive show.
The station announced the changes to the show through a statement explaining that current host KCI had been “moved” to the late night weekend show.
“Consistent audience decline in the afternoon drive has necessitated changes in the show as from 1 July 2017. Amaza Ntshanga‚ Zizo Tshwete and Reggie Solani will take over the show. KCI August has been moved to Jaiva Mzantsi which is a weekend show that is on air on Friday and Saturday from 10pm until 11pm‚” the station said in a statement.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE‚ Zizo said she was excited at the opportunity to grow with a new team.
“The preparation work includes a bigger team of people. We are open to hearing each other’s ideas and that is a good foundation for finding the most suitable content for our show‚” Zizo said.
Zizo‚ who has been with the Port Elizabeth-based station for several years said that she has fallen in love with radio.
“Radio is immediate and engagement is so organic. I love that every single day is different and that through this platform we are able to facilitate really important conversations‚” she added.
