Further to this line up, Gagasi FM listeners can now expect traffic reports throughout the day;

“Our audience has consistently shown a pertinent need to be informed about traffic even

outside the two prime time shows. This is further attestation to changing listening trends to which

we have responded by increasing the info-combo throughout the day comprising of news,

traffic and sports at the top of the hour. Such will also be extended to our digital channels as

our response to this growing demand” said Alex Mthiyane, Head of Audience Experience of

Gagasi FM.

It is clear from Gagasi FM’s new line-up that the station is obsessed with grooming and retaining

talent; “#WeGoTalent is part of our vision as a station. We want to not only discover new talent,

but also give known KZN talent an opportunity to grow on radio and hopefully grow or move

onto bigger platforms. The key is to shine a light on the talent that KZN has” said Minenhle

Dlamini, Managing Director of Gagasi FM

The new line-up comes after almost a year since Dlamini took over as the station’s MD which

also saw a realignment of operations internally. “It has been an amazing journey since the

changes were implemented almost a year ago. Even the process of putting together the new

line-up was largely informed by where we are as a business and the offering we need to deliver

to both our audience and advertisers,” concluded Dlamini.

The station will soon embark on a roadshow throughout KZN taking the new shows to listeners.
