Nap­ster leaves Star FM

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Show­biz Reporter

STARFM pre­sen­ter Napoleon Nyanhi has re­signed from the ra­dio sta­tion as pro­grammes man­ager to head a new Harare talk ra­dio sta­tion, Cap­italk 100.4FM.

Nyanhi or sim­ply Nap­ster on the air­waves bid farewell to col­leagues at StarFM last week­end say­ing he would cher­ish his stint at num­ber 102 Si­mon Ma­zorodze Road — Star FM stu­dios.

“It’s been quite a run. I’ve learnt so much and grown through the con­tri­bu­tions that each of you made to my life. There’ve been ups and downs and tears of joy and pain, but it has all led to this mo­ment.

“Of­fi­cially, I’ll be off air on Novem­ber 30 and that’s a painful thought,” said Nap­ster.

The tal­ented per­son­al­ity who holds a mar­ket­ing de­gree from Africa Univer­sity will be the sta­tion man­ager at the new so­phis­ti­cated pre­mium talk ra­dio sta­tion which is meant for a Harare au­di­ence and the city’s 40km ra­dius.

An ex­cited Nap­ster said he was look­ing for­ward to the new ex­pe­ri­ences that would come with es­tab­lish­ing Cap­italk 100.4 FM.

“I look with hope though to the new chal­lenge that God has put on my plate and by his grace, Cap­italk 100.4FM will be­come a marvel in Zim­bab­wean ra­dio. I be­lieve I’ve got the best train­ing pos­si­ble which will start me off as I em­bark on this new jour­ney.”

In a state­ment, Cap­italk 100.4FM said: “Napoleon Nyanhi’s vi­sion as he launches Cap­italk FM is to serve au­di­ences through the pro­vi­sion of hyper lo­cal con­tent and pro­gram­ming that brings with it, added value by look­ing at the world from mul­ti­ple per­spec­tives. His man­date is to give Harare its first pre­mium talk ra­dio sta­tion.”

“Cap­italk 100.4FM will be a so­phis­ti­cated talk ra­dio sta­tion whose vi­sion is to be the most trusted source of news and cur­rent af­fairs in Zim­babwe’s elec­tronic me­dia.”

The sta­tion is cur­rently con­duct­ing sig­nal tests as they pre­pare to launch while Nap­ster is con­duct­ing au­di­tions for pre­sen­ters. A pop­u­lar ra­dio mas­ter, Nap­ster started ra­dio broad­cast­ing at the in­cep­tion of Star FM in 2012 as a pro­ducer and pre­sen­ter. He rose through the ranks to be­come the pro­gram­ming man­ager in Septem­ber last year.

Not so much of a fire­brand, Nap­ster used to host The Hub, a hugely pop­u­lar no-holds barred cur­rent af­fairs pro­gramme as well as The Gospel Greats, a mu­sic chart show.

Other than ra­dio, Nap­ster has worked in tele­vi­sion pro­duc­tion.
