Speaking to DRUM about her Metro FM journey, the bubbly media personality said, “My experience at Metro FM was one of growth. It’s great that the industry recognised my talent with the SA Radio Awards nomination [in the commercial news bulletin reader category] that I received. I’ll forever be grateful for my time at Metro FM and the new skills that I learnt.”

She also put rumours of being “surprisingly dismissed” to rest. The presenter said she previously discussed leaving the station long before the public got to know about the production changes that Mtero FM recently announced.

“It’s discussions we had before I left. No parties were surprised or aggrieved by the time the line-up announcement was made. I left Metro FM on good terms and still consider the station family,” Relebogile says.
