Cape Town - After 11 years on air with Kfm 94.5, Ryan O'Connor has decided to step away from the microphone to focus on his new business, The Yellow Room - a digital agency that he launched earlier this month in partnership with Hamiltons Advertising.

Ryan broke the news during his show on Tuesday, where he was joined by Kfm 94.5 Station Manager Stephen Werner, who had also worked as Ryan's executive producer for many years.

In a press release, Ryan said: "I would like to thank the loyal Kfm 94.5 listeners who have tuned into the radio, engaged at events and on social media. I have loved being able to talk to the audience and play such a big part in their world every day for the last eleven years.

"I am proud of the many personal achievements in my time at the station, the goodwill projects (The Cape Fires radiothon and my work with Reach for a Dream, to mention a few) and hope these initiatives along with the feel-good moments and laughs will be fondly remembered by the listeners as I move away from the station.

"A new chapter beckons as I step into The Yellow Room: A new 360-degree full-service digital agency which marries my love for digital and social media as many of the Kfm listeners have come to know".

Ryan's last show will be on 24 December, from 12:00 to 15:00.
