One of South Africa’s most popular personalities is making the move to KZN to launch the next leg of his illustrious broadcasting career. Phat Joe is joining Durban’s hit music station East Coast Radio, as of Monday, 15 August, to take KZN listeners home during the daily drive time show, on air from 15:00 to 18:00.
His unique presentation style, lips smacking radio charm, larger than life personality and infectious ability to connect with his audience promise to bring a refreshing and renewed energy to the late afternoon slot.
“We are delighted to welcome Phat Joe to East Coast Radio’s daily line-up,” says Zane Derbyshire, programming manager. “At the station, we pride ourselves on our core of talented presenters who deliver world-class entertainment to our audience 24/7. The addition of a personality in the form of Phat Joe just takes us up another notch. We are looking forward to introducing him to our listeners from Monday.”
Never one to shy away from hot topics or making his voice heard in the public space, East Coast Radio listeners should ready themselves to spend an energetic, entertaining and invigorating three hours with the celebrated radio host from Monday to Friday.
Says Phat Joe: “This is a really exciting opportunity for me. Not only will I get to chill in Durban, but I also get to interact with the cool listeners of East Coast Radio on a daily basis. I think we are going to have a lot of fun together!”
East Coast Radio (ECR) remains the KZN home of big talent and hit music, and of loving KZN. We are excited at the opportunity to add Phat Joe as one of our big stars, as we welcome him to Durban on ECR’s daily Drive Time show.
“Our country is rich with talent and it is our mission at ECR to be part of this journey, to bring them to our ECR listeners. Listeners look to us to bring them variety and hit music as we lead into the summer season, with something new and fresh. Phat Joe continues to be one of South Africa’s favourites with his brave approach to keep listeners tuned-in. He is a great fit to our line-up, bringing a wealth of experience,” adds Zane.
