Anele bids 5FM farewell

2012-02-23 13:15

TV and radio personality Anele Mdoda is set to leave music station 5FM where she currently hosts the 12pm-3pm slot with Grant Nash.

Mdoda is moving to 94.7 Highveld Stereo to host the drive-time slot in April.

The latter posted the following update on their Twitter page yesterday: “@Anele is coming back to @947Highveld to rev up Afternoon Drive!!! #greatnews”

Anele and Grant Nash hosted an evening show on 94.7 Highveld Stereo a few years ago before joining 5FM.

Anele responded to tweets of congratulations and sadness at her exit on Twitter: “5fm will be just fine! More room to bring on New talent and grow radio as a whole!”

Current 94.7 Highveld Stereo drive-time host Mark Pilgrim will still host the station’s Kia Take 40 SA chart on Saturdays and co-host Bailey Schneider will also be moving on, according to the station’s Twitter updates.

According to a statement released by 5FM, Anele’s co-host Grant Nash “is retiring from radio in order to further himself spiritually”.

Grant and Anele will reveal more regarding their plans on The Grant & Anele Show today between 12pm-3pm.

Earlier this month it was announced that veteran 5FM jock Sasha Martinengo was also leaving the station.
