On Monday 2 March 2015, Heart 104.9FM listeners will wake up to a little bit of a shake-up. While they will still awake to the Heart Breakfast team presented by Aden Thomas, Julian Naidoo and Tapfuma Makina, a fresh new voice moves in behind the microphone between 9:00 and 12:00.
TV presenter and media personality Tracey Lange will take over the mid-morning show. Lange is known for her infectious energy and boisterous laugh which makes even the most serious person joining in.
Newly appointed Managing Director Renee Redelinghuys says Lange is a great addition to the Heart family. "We are excited about Lange joining the team and look forward to further growing the station's listener base. We from time to time assess our offering to ensure we have the best talent to represent the brand."
The rest of the week-day line-up stays the same with Clarence Ford hosting his Lunchbox between 12:00 and 15:00 and the #Drive326 team with Suga, Nick and Keri driving you home between 15:00 and 18:00. Diggy Bongz takes care of In the Mix from 18:00 to 22:00 and Irma G takes you into the break of dawn with Nighshift from 22:00 to 02:00.
The station has been providing the soundtrack to the lives of the residents of the Mother City and surrounding areas for the last 17 years. Redelinghuys says the focus for this year is growing the listener base in the footprint area. "The extended transmitter network has afforded the station the opportunity to connect with the greater part of the Western Cape. We are now within the heart of these communities and connected with our extended heart family."
