SHOWS REVAMP

Date: Mar 23, 2021

Ligwalagwala FM listeners can expect some changes

MEDIA RELEASE: LIGWALAGWALA FM REVAMPS SHOWS

It has become a norm that radio reinvents itself continuously, hence the changes that are implemented in April every year. Ligwalagwala FM listeners can expect some changes to the programme line up mainly on the Midday and Graveyard shows this year. Up the sleeve is a couple of presenter shifts aimed at bringing some flair into the on air offering of Mpumalanga’s leading radio station.

Night time radio will not be the same again as the station introduces automation from midnight to the early hours of the morning. The shift to automation has necessitated an adjustment to the lengths on some shows (00h00 – 04h00 Monday to Friday and 00h00 – 05h00 on weekends). Listeners can however rest assured that daytime slots will retain their duration and show names.

Introduced changes will see Sweet-Mike bidding farewell to the Midday Show (12h00 – 15h00) headed to the ‘Hit Parade’ on Saturdays from 07h00 to 09h00.He will also continue doing what he does best, serenading audiences with soulful sounds every Sunday 12h00 to 15h00.

Hlengiwe Sindane, who has a traceable career path in radio, will drive the midday show, with ‘The Prince’ as her producer, together they are tasked with bringing fresh and innovative content ideas to serve the needs and interests of consumers.

The station has had to release the Midnight duo ‘Afrotellus’ after they have served 9 years following their scooping the ‘MP’s Finest DJ Competition’ in 2011.

We are repackaging the brand in line with operational cost containment measures to attain financial sustainability. The past year has been hard globally due to the covid-19 pandemic and its impact on businesses; the station is no exception, hence the basis for rationalising some time channels and exploring automation for the first time. This will definitely not impact our on-air delivery; listeners can still rely on the station for credible content, news and everything entertainment” said Ms Thembi Madubandlela, Ligwalagwala FM Acting Station Manager.

Ligwalagwala FM turns 39 years on the 1st of April this year; and there will be interesting programming and on air prizes to celebrate this landmark in the growth of the SiSwati station, listeners must stay tuned to the station to find out more.

With the exception of the shows listed below; all other shows remain as they are.
