Announcing the new line-up on the outgoing breakfast show, I Love Mornings, Gagasi FM programme manager Mimi Kesaris emphasised the necessity of change within the dynamic radio environment. “We need to ensure that we are constantly adapting for us to remain relevant to the youthful audience that we talk to. Our talent as the faces of the brand, have to resonate with our audience. Over the years we have been consistent in terms of our programming strategy of developing our own talent and growing them to influential personalities within the entertainment space. With these changes, we have brought in fresh home grown talent to prime time and we are confident that listeners would love what they have to offer. They are bringing in a new energy, a new vibe and a different flavour to the shows, We Got Talent,” says Kasiris.
The new line-up is effective from 2 May. Gagasi FM will then embark on the roadshow all over KZN taking the new shows to the listeners.
