Stephen Grootes leaves 702
Stephen Grootes will be leaving his new role as 702’s afternoon drive host in mid-April 2018. He has been with Primedia Broadcasting for 16 years, offering the latest political insights and analysis on EWN, and then moving into various talk show host roles on 702, including the Midday Report, the Breakfast Show and most recently the Afternoon Drive.
“It’s an incredibly sad day for me to leave 702. I’ve been with the station and EWN for so long, it’s been my home, my family and so much of my life. I’ve learnt so much and watched so much history happen. But I’m excited about the future, and my place in it.”
The new 702 afternoon drive host will be announced shortly.
