Central South Africa’s popular radio station, OFM, has received three nominations for the prestigious SA Radio Awards; two in the coveted Commercial Weekend Radio Show category, and one in the Commercial Station Imaging category.
Shandor Potgieter, presenter of Shandor’s Wild Weekends, and Pieter Venter, host of The Weekend Breakfast, have both been nominated. Shandor will soon host The Good Morning Show weekdays from 06:00 to 09:00 as part of a new on-air lineup. Senior production engineer, Lloyd Bosman, was nominated in the Commercial Station Imaging category. “Three Radio Award nominations is a great accolade.
We are proud of Shandor, Pieter and Lloyd Bosman for the nod. A nomination represents a position on the podium in a space that represents 290 radio brands across South Africa. To OFM’s nominees and all the Radio Award entrants, congratulations, and thank you for making radio a pivotal part of 37 million people’s lives daily,” said Tim Thabethe, OFM Programme Manager.
“For the talented OFM team these nominations are a reward for the beautiful work they do on a daily basis. OFM is very proud of the recognition given to a talented producer and two talented presenters,” said Nick Efstathiou, Central Media Group CEO.
