Seasoned broadcaster Tbo Touch moves back to Metro FM, to be back on airwaves April 1

Molefe resigned from the station six years ago following an alleged fallout with the SABC.

A source from the radio station informed City Press that the star will man the popular afternoon drive slot on Metro FM.

The afternoon drive slot is currently manned by Sphe “DJ Sphectacula” Ngwenya and Lebogang “DJ Naves” Naves – known by radio lovers as Kings of the Weekend.

The article adds that the station has seen a decline in listeners since the exits of fan-favourite radio personalities such as Pearl Modiadie, Bad Boy T, and so forth.

“Metro FM’s seen a decline since the departure of some big names in the past few years, so they had to bring in a big fish to bring listeners back to the station.”

“Touch wanted the morning slot because he has other things going on during the day, but I think he got the [afternoon] one.”

Touch previously revealed in an interview with Thabo T-bose Mokwele at Kaya FM that he left the station as a matter of principle and that he was getting paid R200k monthly when he left Metro FM.

“I was getting about R200 000 a month when I left. It was a nice cheque.”

“No one’s ever left in their prime. If you look at where I was there, you’ll know what I’ve done.”

“You don’t make that kind of decision when you’re earning the biggest cheque in the building. [I said] ‘I’m out!’ on principle.”
