East Coast Radio’s programming manager Zane Derbyshire says, "When I first saw them [Minnie and Tee] on My Kitchen Rules South Africa, I knew they had something special."
"I wanted to see how we could work with Minnie and Tee to develop them into radio stars. We will initially place them in our weekend training slot from 03:00 to 06:00, but I am sure they will soon work their way up," Derbyshire adds.
Minnie says, "Our lives are about to change. I’m so excited about the growth that lies ahead. A lot of people have contributed to where my career is now, and their support is truly heartfelt."
"Don’t ever forget that your dreams are valid," Tee adds. "I’m super excited to start this new chapter in my life. This is the type of thing you dream about when you’re a kid, and to see it manifest is honestly amazing."
The two will take over from Durban comedian and East Coast Radio presenter Neil Green, who moves to daytime to host on Sundays from 14:00 to 18:00. Green replaces Lubz. who left the station end-September.
Green says, "I'm thrilled to be moving to Old Skool Sundays. Sunday afternoons have always been my favourite, and I'm just glad I get to share them with East Coast listeners now. So break out the peach slices and dessert cream and come and get comfortable and nostalgic with me."
