The station came under fire after introducing a new line-up of presenters, including Somizi Mhlongo and Khanyi Mbau, who took over from Mo Flava and Lerato Kganyago.
As if things couldn’t get worse, it was recently announced that Phat Joe had left the station to join East Coast radio. Joe hosted the Saturday breakfast show alongside Pearl Thusi, who is currently in New York filming a show called Quantico.
Pearl and Joe, who had a huge following, were sometimes controversial. Now their slot is open and there’s no word on who will replace them. And it seems like Pearl is not to bothered.
When a fan mentioned that Saturdays are not the same without the two of them, Pearl replied on Twitter: “It wasn’t worth the trouble for us though… I’m sure they’re doing fine without us.”
