Cape Town - 5FM on Friday announced the next addition to their upgraded line-up.

"In a bold move to reinvent the morning offerings, 5FM announces DJ Fresh will take over at 05:00 on 5 May.

"There has been much speculation since the announcement of the new arrivals at 5FM as to the time slot of existing DJs. DJ Fresh will amplify the essence of music youth culture and entertainment on weekday mornings and will provide a new offering to the South African morning radio landscape," Tim Zunckel, programme manager, revealed.

The decision to start the show at 05:00 has been fuelled by feedback from listeners to have a breakfast show that starts their day when they do.

DJ Fresh will be joined by his long standing colleagues Catherine Grenfell (executive producer) and Duran Collett (sport). Newbies include Carmen Reddy (news) who has extensive TV and radio background and Sol Phenduka (traffic) who has recently been in the Big Brother Mzansi House and has extensive morning radio experience.

"I have always enjoyed doing morning radio and the move back to AM drive is a great opportunity to create content and entertain in a new space. I am excited about the new additions to my team and guarantee the audience will be part of my journey in every aspect of the show and P.S no prisoners will be taken," DJ Fresh commented.

With DJ Fresh leaving the PM drive slot, it creates a great opportunity for Roger Goode to inject some of his crazy antics from 16:00 in the afternoon.
