In fact, she has been making waves since cutting her teeth in radio as a student presenter on UJFM.

Thabethe is known for her distinctive style, bringing her own flavour of music and conversation to everything she does. Thando has over a decade of experience in the entertainment industry and has proven to be a successful and gifted presenter during her time on various radio stations. She is a young, dynamic and multi-talented woman, whose drive and ambition is a great example for all aspirational South Africans with the courage to reach – and work – for their dreams,” 947 station manager Thando Makhunga said.

I am really excited to be returning to radio and to have been approached by Joburg’s coolest frequency, 947 – is just fantastic. I have always loved the radio as a medium to genuinely connect with people through music and conversation. I believe that music is a true leveller, bringing people together in a place and time that is just about what they are hearing and how it makes them feel. I can’t wait to get behind the mic and contribute to our 947 audience’s listening experience,” said Thabethe.
