On Monday, March 2, Heart 104.9FM listeners will wake up to a little bit of a shake-up. While they will still awake to the Heart Breakfast team presented by Aden Thomas, Julian Naidoo and Tapfuma Makina, a fresh new voice will move in behind the microphone between 9am and 12pm.
TV presenter and media personality Tracey Lange will take over the mid-morning show. Lange is known for her infectious energy and boisterous laugh.
Newly appointed Managing Director Renee Redelinghuys says Lange is a great addition to the Heart family. “We are excited about Lange joining the team as we believe she will bring a fresh energy and look forward to further growing the station’s listener base through this. We from time to time assess our offering to ensure we have the best talent to represent the brand.”
The rest of the week-day line-up stays the same with Clarence Ford hosting his Lunchbox between 12pm and 3pm and the #Drive326 team with Suga, Nick and Keri driving listeners home between 3pm and 6pm. Diggy Bongz takes care of In the Mix from 6pm to 10pm and Irma G takes listeners into the break of dawn with Nightshift from 10pm to 2am.
The Weekday Wake-Up also sees a line-up change as JP Carelse moves in behind the microphone between 4am and 6am. He will also take care of those party needs with the Weekend Party on Saturdays from 10pm to 1am.
The station has been providing the soundtrack to the lives of the residents of the Mother City and surrounding areas for the last 17 years. Redelinghuys says the focus for this year is growing the listener base in the footprint area. “The extended transmitter network has afforded the station the opportunity to connect with the greater part of the Western Cape. We are now within the heart of these communities and connected with our extended heart family.”
