In a bid to fortify its weekend talk offering, talk radio station Power FM has roped in the services of veteran broadcaster Jeremy Maggs.

The former SAFM presenter begins his two-hour media focused talk show – Power Week from 10am-12pm on Sunday. The talk show fashions itself as a robust platform for discussion with listeners on issues of news media, advertising, creative, online trends and other media developments.

The station continues to punch above its weight to become a force to reckoned with in the broadcasting sector, and recently launched a studio at the JSE.

Power FM chairperson Given Mkhari has welcomed the former Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host. Attracting Maggs to the station is part of the station’s strategy to “facilitate authentic discussions through credible voices”, Mkhari said.

Maggs brings his wealth of journalism experience to the Johannesburg-based radio station. He started his career in print, then progressing to radio and TV in a career spanning more than 30 years.

The station has also introduced a new talk show called Power Newsroom as a way to introduce listeners to the behind-the-scenes news gathering processes. The show is hosted by the station’s head of news, Denzil Taylor. The one-hour talk show precedes Power Week and runs from 9am-10am.

Mkhari said: “Power Week and Power Newsroom are new offerings in the lives of our listeners and should go a long way in meeting their request for some talk services over the weekend.”

Maggs said he was looking forward to joining the station and the appointment allowed him to also “participate in this media revolution and assist the station as it cements its place as the leading talk station in our country”.
