YFM announces new lineup today

Effective today, 1 April 2014, 99.2 YFM announced its new line-up with brand new breakfast and afternoon drive shows for the 2014-2015 programming year.
Breakthrough talent Bryce Clarke Aka DJ Ankletap and his co presenter Mantsoe 'Pout' Tsatsi will be taking over the breakfast slot (6am-9am) and Moeti Tsiki Aka DJ Mo Flava will now move across to the afternoon drive show (3-7pm).

Breakfast Show presenters
Programming manager, Tumelo Diaho Monaheng comments, "We are constantly refreshing and developing new and innovative ways to entertain our listeners, but every five years or so we have a complete overhaul of our programming and on air talent. This year we have made some bold new additions and changes to our line up.

"The station has a legacy of top breakfast and afternoon drive time shows and we believe that Bryce and Mo will also achieve great things and contribute positively to the history of their respective time slots."

Campus recruitment

In keeping with the station's ongoing commitment to unearthing and developing the hottest new talent, it has not looked to other commercial radio stations to recruit talent.

New voices on Y, handpicked from campus radio that typify the brand with their injection of youthful edginess and street smarts, include Daveyton born Lusanda "Lusky" Nkohla from UJFM - who will take over weekend breakfast show and Ayanda "Ayanda MVP" Mdluli, who will host the 12pm-3pm weekend show.
