Thato Molamu’s career just keeps on soaring higher and higher.

The actor, who not only appears on Umlilo but on Mzansi Magic’s latest telenovela Greed and Desire too, has landed his first radio show.

Durban-based radio station, East Coast Radio (ECR), officially revealed that Thato will be presenting his first show on the radio station from 29 May 2016.

In a statement released by ECR, Thato expressed great excitement in becoming part of the family. 

“Ah man, I’m so excited! As a young boy I used to dream of being on radio. I love the vibe at East Coast Radio! It speaks to my interests as an individual. I’m a “giving back” kind of person, and East Coast Radio “gives back” all the time so there’s an affinity here.”

The actor also spoke highly of KZN as a province too.

"KZN has a vibe that many provinces in South Africa don’t have. It has good weather and great culture. I think the weather compliments the people of KZN. There’s warmth all around,” he added.

ECR’s programme manager, Zane Derbyshire, explained that the reason they chose Thato Molamu as their latest radio host was because he is an exceptional storyteller and has the ability to connect through one-on-one conversations with people.

“He is well-known to television audiences and the plan is to make him equally well known as a radio star," Zane added.

Catch Thato Molamu every Sunday on East Coast Radio from 10am to 2pm, beginning 29 May 2016.
