"I regard this opportunity as a real privilege. I come into an operation that has a very sound base, with the potential to become the strongest commercial radio station in the country based on a need amongst consumers. I couldn't ask for a better outlet to share the experience that I have gained over the past few decades," says Klatzko.
She adds, she will be prioritising broadening the station's footprint and demonstrating consumer reach of the station. Even though the station broadcasts in the Gauteng region, it also has a wider online audience across South Africa and internationally with over 40,000 online audiences streaming monthly.
