Although SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago is reported to be unaware about the move, Pearl’s representative at Capacity Relations has claimed otherwise.
Sarit Tomlinson, managing director at Capacity confirmed that the swanky TV and radio personality won’t be coming back to the popular radio station, this according to Sowetan on Thursday.
“Regrettably, she won’t be returning to Metro FM. She’s going to be in New York for a while, she definitely won’t be back this year,” Tomlinson.
When one of the show’s listeners raised concern about Saturday mornings no longer being the same without Pearl and Phat Joe, Pearl simply said that it wasn’t worth the trouble.
“It wasn’t worth the trouble for us though… I’m sure they’re doing fine without us,” Thusi said.
Pearl is currently in the Big Apple shooting for the second season of the drama series, Quantico.
