Hot 91.9FM gets hotter with new faces and lineup

Hot 91.9FM today announced exciting new changes to the weekday lineup effective 3 May 2021.

Voted Joburg's Hottest Breakfast Show for four consecutive years, the new morning show lineup will consist of Tony Murrell, Bunny Majaja, Simon Hill, John Walland and Ragani Achary. Tony Murrell is renowned in radio for his signature witty humour, silky smooth presentation style and vast musical knowledge. For the last few years, Murrell has held down the weekly midday show slot as well as doubling as the station’s programme manager.

Joining Murrell and the team is the wonderfully bubbly Bunny Majaja who moves from her successful afternoon show, bringing a sense of fun and pizazz to the mornings, the irrepressible Simon Hill, news anchor Ragani Achery and sports maven John Walland. Together, the new Joburg’s Hottest Breakfast team will take your morning to a new and exciting level with stimulating conversation, humour and more of the music that you love.

The ever-popular Mark Pilgrim will continue to delight his audience with The Mark Pilgrim Show from 9am to 12pm with his unique brand of music memories, fun facts and daily quizzes.

About Hot 91.9FM

Hot 91.9FM is a community radio station based in Northriding and broadcasting to Johannesburg North and surrounding areas. Launched on 17 November 2014, Hot 91.9FM has propelled itself, with lightning speed, straight into a radio gap that existed in Gauteng.

Playing the best ‘old skool’ and R&B music, with the most popular radio personalities as well as the most spectacular on-air promotions and off-air presence, it’s been a thrilling journey of change for radio and the station, which is driving innovation and leading change in the industry. “Hot 91.9FM is about fun radio with the purpose of making a meaningful difference in the lives of those around us,” says founder and station managing director Lloyd Madurai.


For four years in a row, Hot 91.9FM has scooped the prestigious Station of the Year award at the South African Radio Awards. This is a landmark achievement considering the station has won this award every year since 2017.

Added to this, Hot 91.9FM won another eight awards including the My Station accolade which is given to the radio station with the most loyal listeners. The litmus test for any radio station is its appeal to its audience. Station loyalty is of paramount importance to a radio station and is perhaps the most important aspect of broadcasting.
