Gareth Cliff’s replacement has officially been named: and it's no big surprise.
While 5FM hasn’t released their full 2014-2015 line-up, it’s obvious they need someone who appeals to both young people and the over-30s in the same way Gareth did. Who better to do that than 5FM’s afternoon drive show host, DJ Fresh?
From May, The Fresh Drive will take over 5FM mornings with the new, earlier timeslot of 5am-8am.
But it’s not the Fresh Drive you’re used to. Fresh will still be there (obviously) and he'll be joined on the breakfast show by long-time executive producer Catherine Grenfell and Duran Collett (on sport), as well as newcomers Carmen Reddy (news) and Sol Phenduka (traffic).
It looks like Poppy Nthsongwana will stay in the afternoon drive slot, although this hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Filling Fresh’s ‘drive time’ slot will be the madcap Roger Goode with Sias du Plessis (who did sports on Gareth’s 5FM show).
