Finally it’s here, the all new Duma FM, complete with new management, a new logo and a fresh line up, which hits the airwaves for the first time tomorrow, Monday.
In a statement released on Friday at a well attended Dia Duma jazz festival that featured top local artists in the likes of Banjo Mosele, Ndingo Jowa, and Stampore amongst others.
Station manager, Alfred Busang, thanked past and present staff and directors singling out the Sales Marketing and Programming consultant, Robin Chivazve, saying it was a pleasure and honour working with someone as gifted as him.
“There is no doubt in our minds that because of his wealth of experience and extraordinary vision, we are well on our way to realising our vision of being the best radio station in Botswana,” he said.
The new format promises a unique blend of talk and music in line with the all new tag line, More talk, More music. The station promises an all new programming format that has been carefully formulated to allow utmost priority on delivery of good music, and equal precedence on stimulating, relevant, talk based content which are developed with the mature, discerning listener in mind.
Busang guaranteed that come Monday, 1 March, no radio station will deliver a better mix of intelligent talk and fantastic music.
For that, the station has roped in former Voice News editor, Moses Maruping, who goes on air from 0600hrs-0900 hrs, Miso Mmereki 09h00 to 12.00, Bonni Dintwa 12 to 3 Pm, Cathy Malejane 3 pm to 1900 hrs and Donald Seberane who goes on from 1900hrs till 2200hrs.
