Moloto will be taking over from Kieno Kammies, who will be moving to a new daytime slot while he pursues his studies and other business interests. The change forms part of larger brand refresh for CapeTalk.
The changes will be driven by new imaging, as well as an integrated marketing campaign.
"[Moloto] is known to the CapeTalk
audience," says Tessa van Staden, CapeTalk's
station manager. "She has been hosting Upfront with Refilwe Moloto,
and prior to moving in behind the mic, she was a weekly business contributor on Afternoon Drive
"[Moloto] has proven to be very popular with our listeners who value her wit, her expertise when it comes finance and her unique take on the news of the day. Refilwe is warm, charismatic and versatile,” adds van Staden.
"We are incredibly proud to be making talk radio waves by providing a platform for a talented, highly accomplished and intelligent woman to set the agenda. In fact, [Moloto] joins a small club globally in this regard," she says.
"I would like to thank Kieno Kammies for driving breakfast on CapeTalk
over the last eight years. We're looking forward to Today with Kieno Kammies,
which will start daily at 9:00. Kieno will continue using his contacts for good by assisting listeners when they battle bureaucracy or when they are stalled by red tape," van Staden says.
"It's a thrill to be taking on the morning drive, and the momentousness of this African milestone is not lost on me," says Moloto. "It was an honour to build a truly special show from scratch, along with our Upfront with Refilwe Moloto
"I’m excited to continue those informative, challenging and insightful discussions, with all the news and views you need to kickstart your day. We leave no question unanswered on Breakfast with Refilwe Moloto
— we're looking forward to delivering a show where curiosity is rewarded," Moloto concludes.
