Jacaranda FM is one of the most consistent radio stations in South Africa and not often known for changing their lineup, so when they do it’s big news. On Monday, 3 May 2021, the station kicks off early morning listening with Mornings with Mack
. The current late-night presenter moves to mornings where he will be priming Mzanzi’s early risers with his infectious personality, Monday to Friday between 4am and 6am.
Target Group Index South Africa 2019 (TGISA) shows that Jacaranda FM listeners have a keen sense of adventure and believe 'that you only live once', so it's important to have as much fun as possible...

“Our listener data highlighted a few new listenership pattern changes as a result of Covid-19 and the lockdown. We knew our listeners were moving to increased and longer listening time via streaming, but, interestingly, our listeners were also up and active earlier,” said Hennie Myburgh Jacaranda FM programme manager. Mornings with Mack
will replace More Music You Love Early Mornings
to provide Jacaranda FM’s early risers with a companion eager to take them into Breakfast with Martin Bester
from 6am to 9am. If you’re a fan of good music and love singing along in the shower, looking for an energy boost to drive those last night shift hours, love singing along whilst you prep your kids meals or even looking for an online gym club with some of the best trainers in the country, then Mornings with Mack
is the show for you.
“I can’t wait to share a new show feature that will get you active at 5.15am, so set your alarm and gear up because it’s about to get funky! I’ll be bringing great conversations, epic challenges, easy meal prep tips, and tapping into all the online gamers out there,” comments Mack Rapapali, Jacaranda FM Mornings with Mack
