Issued 03 March 2021

LM Radio accelerating its growth, forging a closer collaboration with Magic828 in Cape Town.

LM Radio SA’s Chairman, Jan van Niekerk today announced the stations’ excitement about the growth opportunities brought on by an even closer partnership with Magic828. “Together with the shareholders of Magic828 in Cape Town, we see this as the logical next step in creating a national radio footprint that will appeal to all South Africans in the age group 40 to 59 years,” says van Niekerk. Our sister station LM Radio Mozambique in Maputo compliments our audience and geographic reach. We believe that this makes LM Radio a compelling option for our advertisers.

The collaboration between the stations will result in some changes at both Radio Stations at the end of this month.

Anchoring weekday mornings on LM Radio and Magic828 will be the ever-popular Sasha Martinengo between 06:00 and 10:00.

The silky voice of Sihle Ndlovu will guide listeners through the lunch-hour between 10:00 and 14:00.

Ndlovu hands over to Gavin Buckle on Afternoon drive from 14:00 to 18:00.

Radio Hall of Famer, Peter Wise, winds down the day between 18:00 and 20:00 before Mark Williams signs off with two hours of South African music.

On the Weekend Breakfast, listeners will be warmly welcomed by Megan Edwards from the mother city, followed by Gavin Koppel and Bobby Louw respectively.

Saturday evenings will be rocked by the fountain of musical knowledge, Adrian Larger. Weekends will culminate in the sounds of Jazz Eeze, presented by Cape Town’s very own Helenne Ulster.

Van Niekerk also announced the appointment of Lyndon Johnstone as Group CEO. Johnstone will oversee operations in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Maputo. Johnstone, who is the current Head of Operations at LM Radio takes over from Dayne Allenbrook.

For any enquiries, please contact Lyndon Johnstone on Ends.
