Darren Maule brings you 'The Breakfast Stack'

Whether he is on a beach battling the elements, playing a serious role in a television series, MC'ing a black tie event, chairing a game-show or standing in front of an audience in a smoky room and making them laugh until their sides are sore... Darren Maule is the consummate entertainer.
...and entertain you he will, as he takes over the reigns every weekday morning on East Coast Radio. Together with breakfast show stalwarts, Seema Diahnan on Newswatch, Dumi Kunene on Sportswave and Johann Von Bargen on Traffic, this immensely talented master story teller will host 'The Breakfast Stack' between 06h00 and 09h00 from the 4th of July 2011.

Darren has been a familiar face on the South African entertainment circuit for over 16 years. As well as being one of South Africa's top stand-up comedians, he has starred in award-winning television series as well as numerous advertisements both locally and internationally. Television viewers have seen Darren most recently on The Celebrity Survivor Island.

Breaking into the radio industry for the very first time, Darren's natural sense of humour and intelligent banter promises to take East Coast Radio's new breakfast show to greater heights. The Breakfast Stack is set to be engaging and fun with copious amounts of irreverence, comedy moments and unique take on everyday events.

Find out interesting tidbits of information about Darren - where he grew up, when he had his first kiss and what he loves most about the East Coast by staying tuned to the show every morning as tag team Seema, Johan, and Dumi play 'Spin the Wheel of getting to know Darren'.

"I look forward to giving you my particular, if occasionally peculiar, outlook on life, the universe and everything in between," says Darren.

You can still expect some of your favourites like 'The Grand Challenge' and scam calls at their best, but more especially, the voices you love. Johann Von Bargen, affectionately known as the Traffic Guy, continues to save you the hassle of sitting in traffic jams with his up-to-the-minute traffic reports. Never missing a beat on hot news and current affairs, the quick-thinking, sharp-witted Seema Diahnan ensures you are always kept abreast of the happenings around you while Dumi Kunene brings you the most recent sports updates. New show producer, George Thorne, keeps a watchful eye on the guys whilst keeping his finger on the pulse making sure that they bring just the right dose of entertainment to kickstart your day.

More award-winning content, more comedy, more of the best hits of the 80's, 90's and today only on East Coast Radio.
