LM Radio appoints Johnstone

LM Radio has announced the appointment of seasoned radio executive, Lyndon Johnstone, as its new Head of Operations. Johnstone will operate from LM Radio’s Rivonia Studios and will be tasked with managing strategic agency partnerships as well as the day to day business. His appointment accelerates the momentum with which LM Radio has been growing its business over the last couple of years.

LM Radio executive director Dayne Allenbrook, says Johnstone’s experience of more than 35 years in the media and broadcast industry will be invaluable as the station steps up its growth trajectory. “We are looking to build on the strong foundation we have laid over the past few years and look forward to Lyndon’s contribution and leadership” he said.

Johnstone’s media journey took him via the SABC, to Managing Director of OFM in Bloemfontein, Station Manager at KayaFM and then on to RadioHeads (now MediaHeads360). His last assignment was CEO of Classic 1027.

LM Radio is designed to suit the music and lifestyle tastes of people aged 40 to 59 years of age living in Southern Africa. The music played on LM radio is a collection of familiar, nostalgic hits – ranging from the 1960s to today. It is not about the era but rather about creating a happy and uplifting mood for our listeners with an intimate and comforting style.

Founders Chris & Robbie Turner and Eric Nhlapo started the LM Radio project in 2005 with a dream to bring high quality music radio back to Southern Africa. It took its cue from the original LM Radio, which broadcast out of Mozambique from 1936 to 1975, and was an independent station that was the first commercial station to broadcast on Short Wave in Africa. The Gauteng station was re-launched in 2017 and broadcasts on 702 KHz on AM.
