702 shuffles lineup for 2018
Bongani Bingwa will be taking over 702’s breakfast show in January 2018; he joined the station in July 2017 to present afternoon drive. Stephen Grootes will move to the afternoon drive show.
“Bongani is a natural drive time host — he brings personality, curiosity and a critical eye to all the stories of the day, and listener feedback has been exceedingly positive,” says Thabisile Mbete, 702 station manager. “We believe he is the right person to lead audiences through the many complex issues that affect our lives in Gauteng.”
Grootes has been filling in on the breakfast show since September, when breakfast presenter, Xolani Gwala, announced he would be taking some time off to receive treatment for cancer.
The new lineup will come into effect from 15 January 2018.
