Karabo Kgoleng
Garda (@AshrafGarda1) will continue to present Media@SAfm on Sundays, 9am-11 am, and Special Assignment on SABC3.

Kgoleng (@KaraboKgoleng) replaces the various freelance presenters that have filled the 4am-6am weekday slot since Udo Carelse moved to weekend breakfast in March this year. Her broadcast experience includes three years of community radio and being the host of Afternoon Talk on SAfm and its Sunday Literature show.

"An exciting addition to the lineup"

Comments Pheladi Gwangwa (@PheladiG), Talk Radio 702 station manager, "Her passion for this country, for reading and learning, as well as her flair and experience in broadcasting, make her an exciting addition to the lineup."

"I see the media as a channel to change people and our country, ideals that 702 has long been living up to," says Kgoleng. "This is a wonderful opportunity and I'm looking forward to joining this team."

Kgoleng will remain City Press books editor and VP of Alliance Francaise, Johannesburg, furthering her passion for books, literature and reading. She is the 2009/2010 South African Literary Award winner for journalism, acknowledged by the Mail & Guardian in both its '200 Young South Africans to take to Lunch' supplement and its 'Book of South African Women 2009' for her contribution to arts and culture.

Further shuffling

For the time being, Christina Scott will take over Kgoleng's SAfm Literature programme on Sundays, 1pm-4pm, in addition to her regular Science Matters programme on Thursday nights, 9pm-10pm.

Sibahle Malinga (@sibahle) takes over the overnight programme on weekends, midnight to 4am on Saturday and Sunday from Mathumo Manaka. She also presents the programme InTune on Saturdays, noon-1pm, that deals with issues pertaining to South African youth.

Moshoeshoe is described as a well-known radio and TV presenter/actor with live and interactive TV and radio experience.
