Cape Town -  Radio 947 is shaking things up with a brand-new line-up, from Monday, 22 August. 

The refreshed line-up will put the irrepressible Greg and Lucky on weekday lunch, from 12:00 to 15:00, Monday to Friday.

Greg and Lucky have built an impressive fanbase with their unpredictable, playful nighttime show on 947 for the past three years. Their move to the lunchtime slot makes space for a fresh new pairing: Zweli Mbhele and Mantsoe Pout, who will take over the 19:00 to 22:00 shift with The Night Show on 947.

"We're very excited about these changes, not only because we feel these presenters are the very best contenders to host the shows, but also because it shows the value of investing in the development of young, new talent," said 947 station manager, Ravi Naidoo.

Greg and Lucky started on weekend overnights and quickly showed they have a magic chemistry with the audience. They were moved onto weeknights and have proved to be committed to their shows and to creating content that works for them and their audiences.

In addition to hosting the weeknight show, from Monday to Thursday, Zweli and Mantsoe will also host the Shazam Chart show, which moves from Sunday afternoon at 16:00 to Sunday morning from 10:00 to 12:00.

The station also announced that Zama Dube will be hosting early breakfast on weekdays, from 04:00 to 06:00. Zama joined the station from Yfm earlier this year and will bring a youthful energy to early breakfast.

"Following the rhythm of the city, we know that Joburg is starting the day earlier and earlier. Zama's interest in current affairs and her opinions on what's going on will take listeners through their early mornings and lead them into the Breakfast Xpress at 06:00.
