LOCAL private commercial radio station ZiFM Stereo has announced a major reshuffle as it celebrates 10 years on the airwaves.
ZiFM announced the reshuffle in a statement on Monday.
Reigning National Arts Merit Award Outstanding Journalist — Radio winner, Rumbidzayi “Chamvary” Mugwira joins the ZiFM Stereo team from Power FM, taking over The Big Show.
“We have created a new line-up on radio that not only gives our listeners a fresh take on exactly what they want, but also maximises the opportunities for our advertisers. We are thrilled about the new line-up and we are looking forward to sharing the exciting journey with our existing listeners and new ones too,” noted ZiFM Stereo station manager, Danis Dube, aka Danny that Guy.
“Following the departure of Captain Awesome, the familiar voice of The Big Dawg, Tonderai “TK” Katsande returned to The Ignition Breakfast, ZiFM Stereo’s breakfast show. Joining him is a new name to ZiFM Stereo, Nokuthula Sithole, aka Noxy Divine Diva. Noxy hails from the City of Kings, Bulawayo and brings a welcome flavour of wit and energy to The Ignition Breakfast, weekdays from 6am to 10am.
“ZiFM Stereo listeners can expect Chamvary’s trademark energy and high-profile celebrity interviews to continue at her new home, on weekdays from 10am to 2pm. The Rush is the most exciting show on radio right now, and it continues with the dynamic duo of Simba Mudereri and Misred on weekdays 2pm to 6pm.”
Danny that Guy further indicated that experienced journalist and Powerhouse talk show host, Farai Mwakutuya returns to the station’s current affairs line-up hosting Ask The MP every Wednesday evening from 7:30pm.
“Noma Da Queen moves to the Weekend breakfast on Saturday mornings, while Amard takes over The Love Lounge on Monday and Tuesday evenings, with TatendaGee hosting the Official chart show, the ZiTop 40 on Saturday mid-mornings,” he said, adding that more changes could be made soon.
“Making changes to the on-air team is always a bitter-sweet experience, but we believe we are cementing ourselves as the hottest station in the nation with the new on-air team and format. We want everyone to agree with us when we say that ZiFM Stereo is My Station, Your Station.”
