After Tbo Touch confirmed his resignation from Metro FM, reports have revealed that he will be moving to the another media powerhouse – Primedia Broadcasting.
According to a report published on Sunday Sun , Tbo Touch will be joining 94.7 Highveld Stereo after being in talks with Primedia for months now. When Sunday Sun talked to the station manager – Ravi Naidoo , he said there’s no formal agreement in place.
‘As a prominent figure in our industry, I’ve had conversations with Tbo Touch over the years, and we’ve spoken since he resigned. But I can confirm there’s no formal offer or agreement in place.’
Tbo Touch announced his resignation from Metro Fm with a letter that leaked online and stated: ‘I pride myself to be counted among a great team of broadcasters that has graced this corporation. I will forever be grateful for all the lessons and accomplishments Metro FM has afforded me.
I wish to leave Metro FM on good terms with no animosity within 30 days of this submission.’ But word on street is, the popular DJ was fed up with 90% local music playlist implemented by the public broadcaster.
In our previous post; it reported that Somizi and Khanyi Mbau will take over Tbo Touch’s slot on Metro FM.
