‘GOOD MORNING FOR THE VERY LAST TIME’  

The comedian Skhumba Hlophe and seasoned broadcaster Thomas Msengana presented their last breakfast show this morning on Kaya 959.  

The station announced Msengana and Hlophe their replacements and have reportedly been replaced as part of their brand repositioning strategy to grow listenership and advertising revenue.   

Sources from the Johannesburg-based station told Sunday World that Hlophe and Msengana were removed from the show because the ratings have dropped drastically and the show has struggled to attract advertising.   

The source added Msengana, who was working on the daytime show before teaming up with Hlophe for the breakfast show, was just collateral damage.    

“Skhumba was supposed to be the only one gone as he is not radio material.”   

Kaya 959’s new breakfast host Dineo Ranaka also announced her departure from the Metro FM show The Bridge on social media last week (14 June).
