Fine. We’ll admit it. Our mornings haven’t been the same since Alex Jay left his weekend breakfast slot on popular Johannesburg station 947. However, the absence will be short lived as the star announced today that he will officially be coming back to his popular timeslot – only this time, it will be on Jacaranda FM!

Alex will be the host of the Weekend Breakfast every Saturday and Sunday from 06h00 to 10h00 from the 3rd of February 2018. But, that’s not all! He will also be joining Sacha Van Gelder on Jacaranda FM Regional, broadcasting to Mpumalanga and Limpopo only every weekday from 12h00 to 16h00.

With over 36 years of experience in the broadcasting industry, Alex has a flair for the medium and his passion shines through on each and every broadcast. So, Jacaranda FM is lucky to have him on their team. “Welcoming a presenter of Alex’ caliber is a great privilege for us. He has a strong rapport with audiences and really appeals to all South Africans,” Jacaranda FM’s GM, Kevin Fine, says in a statement. “ His love for radio and music echoes the station’s brand sentiment, and he will be a huge asset to our weekend and regional product.”

Naturally, Alex is also excited about joining the major broadcaster. “I love new challenges,” Alex says. “The move to Jacaranda FM is a fresh start, brings great potential and, of course, I get to connect with a massive group of listeners who I might’ve not had the privilege of talking to before. Dis fantasties!” On what audiences can expect from his shows, he says: “Fun and games, a great vibe, plus, most importantly, more of the high school hits you love.”
