SPONSORED | South Africa’s dynamism and volatility now more than ever require a meeting of the minds. The country needs robust dialogue to challenge convention and forge mindsets for the future. Kaya FM’s new line-up addresses this need squarely.

Here’s a look at the line-up from Monday to Thursday:

Renowned and award-winning journalist David O’Sullivan takes over the Breakfast Show from May 2 2017. He is a seasoned journalist, author and sports fanatic, among many other things. His broadcasting career started at Capital Radio and took him overseas to the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand before he joined 702 in 1995.

From July 2017, taking over the mid-morning show is the ever-bubbly Bridget Masinga, who has been hosting Late Nights with Bridget since September 2016. She will bring her flavour of the arts into Kaya’s daytime.

On the Afternoon Drive, hear Kgomotso Matsunyane, the co-founder of T.O.M. Pictures; former editor of Oprah magazine; writer; TV and radio talk show host; and media activist. Her co-host, Ndumiso Ngcobo, is an author, blogger, former TV host and former high school maths and science teacher, best known for his book Some of My Best Friends Are White. Kaya welcomes this duo back into the family.

That leads into the award-winning show Kaya Bizz with Gugulethu Cele.

Then, an exciting line-up will revolutionise Fridays for all Afropolitans: the breakfast show will be co-hosted by Ngcobo and resident comedienne Skhumba. The Friday Mid-Morning show will be hosted by a celebrity.  At midday, Proverb will host weekly live and unplugged shows. 

Saturday mornings will never be the same as Kaya introduces radio stalwart Jenny Crwys-Williams as host. Her show will focus on book reviews, podcasts on wine, the arts, conservation, history and much more.

Starting on May 1 from 2pm to 6pm, Kaya FM launches an authentic Saturday mix show called Sound Supreme, comprising Muzik, Kenzhero, Just Themba and TRS.

“The changing landscape of the Afropolitan in the South African context is going to be challenging in many ways and will require deep, meaningful conversations, which Kaya aims to deliver with the announcement of the new line-up,” said Kaya FM MD Greg Maloka.
