  • Media personality Anele Mdoda has signed a five-year contract with music radio station 947.
  • Last month, she announced she was taking a two-month break from the breakfast show she hosts.
  • She will be back on air on 1 July, following her travels to different countries to explore radio broadcasting and entertainment trends.

Media personality Anele Mdoda has signed a five-year contract with Primedia Broadcasting's music radio station 947.

Mdoda, who has already been with the company for 14 years, will also mark her 20th anniversary as a broadcaster this year.

"2022 is my 20th anniversary as a broadcaster. I have been with the company for 14 years, and Primedia formed part of my personal and professional growth. They are like family to me," she said in a press statement.

"Signing a five-year contract is testament to the vision of new group CEO Jonathan Procter."

In April, Mdoda announced that she was taking a two-month break from the Anele and the Club breakfast show.

She added that she would be traveling to different countries during the eight-week break to explore trends in radio broadcasting and entertainment.

Another seasoned broadcaster Thando Thabethe is standing in for Mdoda.

Chair of Primedia Broadcasting, Phumzile Langeni, said they were fortunate to be driven by their group CEO's "crystal clear and compelling vision." 

"At Primedia, it is all about validating our people. When our people succeed, we succeed. There is much more that we need to still see from Anele," she said.
