"Taking home the Best Commercial Radio Station in South Africa Award meant a lot to our team who kept our community informed and entertained — despite the most intense challenges this year," says Deirdre King, managing director at Jacaranda FM.

"Pretoria is Jacaranda city; it's where our station's roots are and the special residents of Pretoria are the driving force behind our brands' success. Earning their vote of confidence every year remains a priority for us," adds King.
Martin Bester has walked away with the Best Local Radio Personality Award for the third year in row, edging out fellow Jacaranda FM Scenic Drive host Rian Van Heerden who held the title from 2013 to 2017.

Jacaranda FM also shares a joint winner award for the Best Local Radio Station in the Best of Ekurhuleni Reader’s Choice Awards 2021.

"Jacaranda FM outpaces other stations with our fiercely loyal and exclusive audience that have enjoyed our consistency and world-class talent for the past 35 years," says Hennie Myburgh, programme manager at Jacaranda FM.

"We're extremely excited to see a growing number of Ekurhuleni residents become part of the Jacaranda FM family; this award is a testament to our growing East Rand community," adds Myburgh.

With a weekly audience of over 1.4 million listeners, almost 700 000 daily and returning listeners, as well as a combined social footprint of over 1.5 million fans, Jacaranda FM remains a locally-loved radio station.
