Cape Town -- DJ Sbu (Sibusiso Leope) will start a new radio-on-television show on 4 July that will be a simulcast quattro play on two of The Times Media Group's radio stations and two community TV channels.
The DJ Sbu Breakfast, a partnership syndication deal, will go out on the radio stations Vuma FM in KwaZulu-Natal and Rise FM in Mpumalanga, as well as on the Urban Brew managed and produced community stations Soweto TV (DStv 251) and 1 KZN (DStv 261 / StarSat 486).
The DJ Sbu Breakfast radio programme that will have in-studio cameras similar to kykNET's Die Groot Ontbyt and essentially broadcast a video feed of the radio show, will go out between 06:00 and 09:00 on weekdays.
The DJ SBu Breakfast will be done alternatively from Times Media Group's studios in Rosebank, Johannesburg, the Rise FM studio in Mbombela and the Vuma FM studio in Durban.
In an announcement the MoFaya energy drink peddler who in 2015 presented the entrepreneurial show Kicking Doors on CNBC Africa (DStv 410) called the DJ Sbu Breakfast show "history in the making. Never been done before. Two radio stations, one man, one breakfast".
Previously Leope was the presenter of the long-running Friends Like These on SABC1, produced by Urban Brew Studios until his contract was terminated after 12 years in late 2015.
