The station has welcomed Msizi James to weekday mornings from 09:00 to midday. The shown offers three hours of at-home and in-office entertainment.

"My journey on radio started in 2014 with my love for music. Since moving to Johannesburg, I have become accustomed to the drive and ambition of this city. I love the energy and the people. I am thrilled to be a part of the 947 family," says James.

Nick Explicit, host of 947 Sundays with Nick Explicit, now also kicks off the weekday line-up with his new show Daybreak with Nick Explicit between 05:00 and 06:00. The show leads up to 947's flagship morning drive show Anele and the Club on 947 and targets Johannesburg early risers, or 'the 5am Club'.

Msizi James on 947 is followed by Ayanda MVP from midday to 15:00, 947 Drive with Thando from 15:00 to 19:00 and Nights with Zweli from 19:00 to 22:00, Mondays to Thursdays. On Friday evenings, Chrizz Beatz will host 947 Bloc Party. 

947 has welcomed back Tholi Bologo, also known as Tholi B, as he claims Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 14:00 to 18:00 with his new show Tholi B Weekends on 947.

Thando Makhunga, 947's station manager, says, "We have developed a line-up that maximises the depth and breadth of South African radio talent and amazing presenters who we know will bring fresh perspectives and new personalities to the station."

"We believe that the new line-up delivers an enhanced listening value proposition for our current and future listener base, while also providing key opportunities for the advertisers and clients who are critical to our success," adds Makhunga.

The station has also indicated that Ayanda MVP will be hosting a show called 947 New and Exclusive with Ayanda MVP.

947 has also indicated that is also bidding a fond farewell to Andy Maqondwana, who has grown her career within the Primedia portfolio of radio stations.

"We are thrilled about our new line-up; it is the start of a very exciting journey for us at 947. We can't wait to cement our position as the 'premier Joburg radio station' and we know our new format and talent will truly deliver for Johannesburg listeners," concludes Makhunga.
