The new weekend programming, which sees the popular DJ Keyez hosting the midday ‘Top 30‘ chart show on Saturdays, brings some of radio’s favourite personalities to Kaya 959 including Samuel ‘Sammy T’ Mundwana (previously with Metro FM and 947), Andy Maqondwana (947) and Mthokozisi ‘MaBlerh’ Cele, who joins the Johannesburg-based commercial radio off the back of his short stint with SABC3’s ‘Trending SA‘ TV show.
“We know the weekend sound of Kaya 959 is an intrinsic part of the landscape of the city. We’ll keep that great Saturday and Sunday music format while we add even more to look forward to, including a new weekend breakfast show, a chart show on Saturdays and much more,” said Kaya FM managing director Sibongile Mtyali.
Other recent changes at Kaya 959 include:
- A new morning show presented by Thomas & Skhumba.
- A bolstering of talk programming with the addition of Point of View with Phemelo Motene and an extra hour with Gugulethu Mfuphi on her award-winning show Kaya Biz.
- The refreshed logo as well as the new strapline, “On the street and on the air”
