Cape Town - Some new 5FM radio presenters have started on the station including Sibs Matiyela, Das Kapital and Linda Mbuso.
You can find newsreader Sibs on Hamman Time with Nick Hamman (Monday to Friday, 08:00 – 10:00) and The Thando Thabooty Show with Thando Thabethe and Justin Toerien (Monday to Friday 10:00 – 13:00). On joining the station, Sibs says: "To wake up every morning and be able to do what I love is enough of a blessing. But to have an opportunity to do such a thing on 5FM is mind blowing."
Das Kapital, who was a regular feature on The 5th Element, has his own show, In Das we Trust, on Sundays, 22:00 – 01:00. Das, whose real name Kyle Brinkmann, says he has been listening to the station since he was a kid.
"I've been listening to 5FM ever since I could remember. Having my own show on the station now is surreal. The support is already streaming in, and I'm certain we're about to have a lot of fun together on In Das We Trust."
Here's an example of the tunes he plays from a tracklist he tweeted out:
Linda Mbuso who joined 5FM in March, holding down The Power After Hours slot (Monday - Thursday 01:00 – 05: 00). This show will now be taken over by Vic Naidoo, who is already hosting All Night Music (Friday to Sunday, 01:00 – 05:00).
The new show replacing The 5th Element (which was on Monday to Friday 19:00 – 10:00) hosted by Linda Mbuso, Tumi Voster and newbie Frankie du Toit. Frankie will also be taking over Saturday breakfast alongside Nadia Romanos and Jude van Wyk (07:00 – 10:00). Justin Toerien will host Sunday Breakfast with a Cuppa JT (07:00 – 10:00).
"I am so excited to take over the weekend breakfast show every Sunday. Thomas did an incredible job and I’m looking forward to the challenge of trying to fill his shoes. It’s been a big achievement for me and I cannot wait for the adventure that lies ahead," says Justin.
