"As they say, all good things must come to an end. After twenty years of radio, I am stepping away from the microphone to pick up the active citizenry baton through my NGO, Peo Impact Gardens in Soweto. My next goal includes supporting four pillars in our communities: health – through our vegetable garden, body and soul – through our breathwork offering, and mind – via the library program. I look forward to moving into a space of implementation, physically and actively doing community outreach and to use my voice to raise the profile of communities in need. I have so loved my time at 702 and will miss our loyal listeners," said outgoing daytime host, Azania Mosaka.

702 station manager, Mzo Jojwana reflected, “Azania has contributed significantly to 702’s success over the last six years. We will miss her and wish her well as she continues to Walk the Talk through her NPO work”.

Jojwana added: “We are thrilled to welcome Relebogile Mabotja back to the station. We know her voice, fearlessness, and ability to listen and really connect with our listeners will once again hit the right note with our audience.”

Mabotja, who makes her big return to the station’s airwaves on Monday 22 November from 1 to 3pm weekdays, is an accomplished radio, tv and news personality. The 702-audience will remember her as the 702 Early Breakfast show host from 2017 to 2019.

“I look forward to stepping back behind the 702 microphone and growing with the audience as we walk the talk together. Listeners can look forward to light, irreverent and meaningful conversations. I am happy to be back home,” said Mabotja, the new host of #702Afternoons.

Mosaka’s last show will be on Friday 19 November 1 to 3pm. Listeners are invited to tune into her farewell show to bid her a fond goodbye and then to welcome Mabotja back to the station on Monday 22 November.
