In a statement released earlier today, the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) announced that Robert Marawa would officially be re-joining the SABC from 01 August 2018.
As previously reported, Marawa will be presenting a new sports show that will be broadcast simultaneously on Metro FM (18:00-19:00) and Radio 2000 (18:00-20:00) on Mondays to Fridays. Speaking about his re-appointment, Marawa described it as a continuation of a journey with the SABC.
"This high level of support is important to me in delivering the kind of quality show that the listener deserves and with the historic simulcast option, we hope rush-hour traffic frustrations will be a thing of the past," stated Marawa.
Recent reports stated that there had been a bit of a tiff between Marawa and management with regards to the contract terms but SABC Spokesperson, Kaizer Kganyago stated “all contractual issues between the organization and Mr Marawa have been resolved amicably and the SABC looks forward to having Mr Marawa back on board once again, to deliver another dose of award-winning sports programming, as we grow our audiences and fulfil our mandate as a public service broadcaster.”
