About Chris Gibbons
Between 2002 and 2012, Chris anchored The Mid Day Report, a hard-hitting news, current affairs and business show, simulcast on Gauteng’s Talk Radio 702 and the Western Cape’s 567 Cape Talk. The show won three successive MTN Radio Awards (2010, 2011, 2012).
He has had a distinguished career on both radio and television, anchoring Newstalk on 702 from 1987 until 1997 and News Hour on SABC TV3 between 1997 and 1999.
Chris also spent time in the publishing industry as Group MD of the New Holland Struik group of companies and was part of the team that listed Primedia on the JSE.
With an MA from Cambridge, Chris also holds an MBA from Henley, one of the UK’s leading business schools.
Since its launch on the 17th of November 2014, Hot 91.9 FM has managed to propel itself, with lightning speed, straight into the obvious radio gap that existed in Gauteng.
Playing the best ‘Old Skool’ and R&B music, with the most popular radio personalities and Joburg’s Hottest Breakfast Show as well as the most spectacular on-air promotions and off-air presence, it’s been a thrilling journey of change for radio and the station, which is driving innovation and leading change in the industry.
