Komani’s Vinny returns to region
Komani-born and raised Algoa FM presenter Vinny Nogemane has returned to the region where he grew up, as an anchor on the Afternoon Drive Show which is broadcast from a studio at Hemingways Casino.
He has been the voice of Algoa FM between 10pm and 2am since April 2013.
Vinny started his radio career at CBFM before moving on to spend six years on air and behind the scenes at OFM in the Free State.
“It is a tribute to Vinny that he was a natural choice for the Afternoon Drive Show when it became vacant,” said Algoa FM MD Alfie Jay.
Another new voice from the Eastern Cape is Cradock-born and raised Annelu le Roux, who will be on air between 7pm and 10pm on Saturdays.
She discovered her love for radio while studying a BA in communications at North West University in Potchefstroom, where campus radio station PUKfm 93.6 awakened her interest.
Working as a presenter,
news reader and news editor at PUKfm, and two Liberty Radio Awards later (2017 and 2018), she said it was clear that radio was where she wanted to be.
After graduating with an honours degree in journalism and multimedia, Le Roux joined Radio Sonder Grense (RSG) as a journalist and producer in Johannesburg.
Thereafter, she joined
Moneyweb as the producer of RSG Geldsake, during which time she received a Bright Star Award at the South African Radio Awards (2021).
Le Roux also worked at Jacaranda FM as the producer of the Scenic Drive with Rian van Heerden. Earlier this year, she decided it was time to return home and joined Algoa FM as a copywriter.
