  • 702's Azania will say goodbye to the talk radio station on Friday.
  • Relebogile Mabotja, who previously hosted the 702 Early Breakfast show, returns as new host of #702Afternoons on Monday.
  • "I look forward to stepping back behind the 702 microphone and growing with the audience as we walk the talk together," said Relebogile.

702's well-loved daytime darling, Azania Mosaka has announced her resignation from the talk radio station. 

702, which serves over 740 000 listeners per week (according to BRC RAMS Amplify April-August 2021) will say goodbye to the seasoned media personality on Friday.

"As they say, all good things must come to an end. After twenty years of radio, I am stepping away from the microphone to pick up the active citizenry baton through my NGO, Peo Impact Gardens in Soweto. My next includes supporting four pillars in our communities: Health - through our vegetable garden, Body and Soul - through our breathwork offering and Mind - via the library program. 

"I look forward to moving into a space of implementation, physically and actively doing community outreach and to use my voice to raise the profile of communities in need. I have so loved my time at 702 and will miss our loyal listeners." said the outgoing daytime host. 

702 Station Manager, Mzo Jojwana reflected, saying: "Azania has contributed significantly to 702's success over the last six years. We will miss her and wish her well as she continues to Walk the Talk through her NPO work".

Mzo added: "We are thrilled to welcome Relebogile Mabotja back to the station. We know her voice, fearlessness, and ability to listen and really connect with our listeners will once again hit the right note with our audience."

Relebogile, who makes her big return to the station's airwaves on Monday 22 November from 13:00 to 15:00 weekdays, is an accomplished radio, TV and news personality. The 702-audience will remember her as the 702 Early Breakfast show host from 2017 to 2019.

"I look forward to stepping back behind the 702 microphone and growing with the audience as we walk the talk together. Listeners can look forward to light, irreverent and meaningful conversations. I am happy to be back home." said Relebogile, the new host of #702Afternoons.

Azania's last show will be on Friday 19 November from 13:00 to 15:00. Listeners are invited to tune into her farewell show to bid her a fond goodbye and welcome Relebogile back to the station on Monday, 22 November.
