Ntshinga joins Jacaranda FM as an experienced broadcast presenter and MC with a passion for rugby. 

"I really admire Smit; she's the ultimate professional and she's especially loved in the sports world. Although I won't get to work with her here at Jacaranda FM, I'll make sure Martin and Liesl are in great company and that our listeners have the best sports information and commentary," says Ntshinga.

Ntshinga replaces Smit as she shifts focus to other projects, both domestically and further afield.

"I'd like to thank my Jacaranda FM family and our incredible listeners for their loyal support — and the amazing journey I got to be part of over the last four years. I will always be a fan of the station — and I treasure the fond memories and many friends I made," adds Smit. 

"My journey in radio started when I was only in high school and the medium will always hold a special place in my heart. I consider this a break, not a break-up," says Smit.

"Naturally, it's hard for us to say goodbye to a valued team member like Smit, but we are very excited to welcome Ntshinga to our morning programming. He did a phenomenal job of stepping into Elma's shoes while she was on tour, and we're very confident that Mzansi is going to love him as much as we do," concludes Deirdre King, managing director of Jacaranda FM.
