It’s breakfast with Barends
Says goodbye to Good Hope FM and ‘good morning’ to KFM listeners
it the No 1 radio station in Cape Town again.
“We’ve made sure this new line-up will maximise that audience relationship and appeal to existing as well as new lis- teners, while playing the best music mix,” said Trish Taylor, chief executive of Primedia Broadcasting in the Western Cape.
“The connection with our listeners is the most important facet of a great radio station.”
Barends and Simpson will be joined on air by Sibongile Mafu, who will provide traffic updates as well as sports news.
Simpson is eager for the challenge of his new job.
“Knowing I’ll have Sherlin and Sibs on the morning show team is adding to that excitement.
“There will be loads of laughs with these two and, even more important, we’re going to have a lot of fun with the awesome people of the Cape,” he said.
Sherlin Barends, 26, will co-host the new KFM breakfast show with Darren “Whackhead” Simpson from July 3.
