CapeTalk welcomes Lester Kiewit to line-up

CapeTalk has unveiled the details of the station's refreshed line-up, with a big focus on evenings, which will take effect 6 January 2019.
Well-known Cape Town broadcast journalist, Lester Kiewit has been lured back into radio by the station and will host his new show from Sunday (9pm-11pm) to Thursdays (8pm-11pm for the remainder of the week).

Lester Kiewit has been plying his trade as a broadcast journalist for over a decade. Kiewit got his big break as a news intern at CapeTalk in 2004 before becoming a seasoned and respected journalist. Kiewit joined television in 2008 where he developed a reputation for being a tough and brave reporter with a gift for story-telling.

“I’m excited to be returning to what I consider home. I started my career in journalism at CapeTalk and EWN in 2004, learning about the wonder of radio under John Maytham, Mike Wills and Charlotte Kilbane”, said new evening show host, Lester Kiewit.

Kiewit added: “I live by the adage that radio is truly the theatre of the mind. I can think of no other place I’d love to be a player than at CapeTalk.”

“The addition of Lester to our line-up is a home-coming for this veteran journalist who honed his skills at our station. Listeners will remember him as one of the prolific on-the-ground news reporters during his earlier tenure at CapeTalk. Lester was born and raised in Cape Town and takes great pleasure in exploring his home town and learning more about the city's history. His experience as a journalist - coupled with his history with CapeTalk – mean this familiar story-teller will return to the airwaves to unpack local and international news in a way that will capture the hearts and minds of our listeners,” said CapeTalk programme manager, Tessa van Staden.
