POPULAR 5FM DJs Grant Nash and Anele Mdoda are leaving the station.

The pair, who have been a radio duo since their university days at TuksFM, present the afternoon Grant and Anele Show.

Nash, a devout Buddhist and vegan, announced yesterday he was retiring from radio to further himself spiritually.

Mdoda revealed she would be joining Highveld Stereo to take over the flagship afternoon drive time show from Mark


“5FM is only for the fearless,” Mdoda said. “I am glad they even let me through the door. I’ve learnt so much … Thank you for that.”

Nash added: “It was always a dream of mine to work for 5FM … I can only hope my spiritual journey will be filled with as many … loving hearts.”

The station announced last week that veteran DJ Sasha Martinengo would be leaving after 17 years as part of 5FM’s planned line-up changes effective from April 1. — Arts Editor.
