The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has officially announced that radio personality, Robert Marawa will be re-joining the public broadcaster from August 1, 2018.
Speculation had been rife over whether Marawa would present the sports show on both Radio 200 and Metro FM.
Today, the SABC clarified the matter, saying: “Mr Marawa, who is a seasoned broadcaster, will be presenting a new sports show to be broadcast simultaneously on Metro FM (18:00-19:00) and Radio 2000 (18:00-20:00) Mondays to Fridays.”
Following reports of issues with Marawa’s contracts, SABC spokesperson, Kaizer Kganyago confirmed that all issues have been resolved “amicably and the SABC looks forward to having Mr Marawa back on board once again, to deliver another dose of award winning sports programming…”
Marawa said he sees the opportunity as a continuation of his journey with the SABC.
“It shows commitment from the leadership of the Public Broadcaster in fulfilling its public service mandate. This high level of support is important to me in delivering the kind of quality show that the listener deserves and with the historic simulcast option, we hope rush-hour traffic frustrations will be a thing of the past.”
