Mbombela-based commercial radio RISE fm announced its new line-up change of show presenters from July 1. The announcement was made by its general manager, Lance Claasen. He said all radio stations need to refresh their line-up annually, balancing and keeping the sound of the station fresh while at the same time not being disruptive to the listener.
“We believe we have accomplished that by introducing some fantastic new talent in the form of Carol Hobbs. She is the 2023 winner of the film and media category of M&G’s 200 Young South Africans and will join the afternoon drive with Bonginkosi Zulu, known as Thebigzill Onair. The talented Khutso Mamabolo will be on Saturday afternoons. We thank the staff who left us and we wish them well in their new endeavours.”
Claasen also said for the listeners with ambitions of becoming a radio presenter, they can go to the RISE fm app and send a voice message with their best radio link. Spots are still available in the RISE fm line-up for Mpumalanga’s hidden talents.
