Well-known broadcaster Chris Gibbons has joined the Algoa FM line-up to present a daily business round-up.
"Chris brings with him the ideal mix," says Algoa FM programme director Alfie Jay. Firstly, he anchors the Mid-Day Report on Gauteng's Talk Radio 702 and 567 Cape Talk in the Western Cape, and secondly - importantly for us - he does it from his home in Knysna."That is in the heart of our new Garden Route footprint, and also means that he is exposed to what is happening through the rest of Algoa Country," he says.
Algoa FM's Morning Show team will be crossing live to Gibbons in his Knysna studio at around quarter past seven every week day morning.
He will be updating Algoa FM listeners on the latest international and local financial and business news. "We will be giving listeners economic updates that could impact on their business or investments in the next 24 hours," says Jay.
Gibbons has been presenting his "hard-hitting news, current affairs and business show" since 2001, and has been with 702 since June 1980, when he anchored the station's first sportscast. He has also worked for the BBC, ABC, NBC and Australia's Maquarie Network.
