Media Release: LM & Magic 828 Radio
MEDIA RELEASE – Issued 03 March 2021
LM Radio accelerating its growth, forging a closer collaboration with Magic 828 in
LM Radio SA’s Chairman, Jan van Niekerk today announced the stations’ excitement
about the growth opportunities brought on by an even closer partnership with Magic 828.
“Together with the shareholders of Magic 828 in Cape Town, we see this as the logical
next step in creating a national radio footprint that will appeal to all South Africans in the
age group 40 to 59 years,” says van Niekerk. Our sister station LM Radio Mozambique
in Maputo compliments our audience and geographic reach. We believe that this makes
LM Radio a compelling option for our advertisers.
The collaboration between the stations will result in some changes at both Radio
Stations at the end of this month.
Anchoring weekday mornings on LM Radio and Magic 828 will be the ever-popular
Sasha Martinengo between 06:00 and 10:00. The silky voice of Sihle Ndlovu will guide
listeners through the lunch-hour between 10:00 and 14:00. Ndlovu hands over to Gavin
Buckle on Afternoon drive from 14:00 to 18:00. Radio Hall of Famer, Peter Wise, winds
down the day between 18:00 and 20:00 before Mark Williams signs off with two hours of
South African music.
On the Weekend Breakfast, listeners will be warmly welcomed by Megan Edwards from
the mother city, followed by Gavin Koppel and Bobby Louw respectively. Saturday
evenings will be rocked by the fountain of musical knowledge, Adrian Larger. Weekends
will culminate in the sounds of Jazz Eeze, presented by Cape Town’s very own Helenne
Van Niekerk also announced the appointment of Lyndon Johnstone as Group CEO.
