JOHANNESBURG - After a rollercoaster few weeks and much speculation, DJ Fresh will be joining the Primedia family.
From 1 August 2019, Fresh, also popularly known as 'The Big Dawg' will host the afternoon drive show on 947.
The guessing game and speculation have been swirling for weeks but all that can be put to rest now.

A formidable and well-respected voice in the industry, Fresh brings with him a wealth of experience as 947 station manager Thando Makhunga elaborates.
“Fresh loves the city and the people of Johannesburg as much as 947 does. So, this is a perfect fit for the station to diversify and grow our audiences and it was also perfect timing for Fresh who was looking for a new challenge. Our listeners are going to love driving home with him, the show is going to be fun and entertaining. He will be surrounded by a team of talented people.”
Excited about his move to the station, DJ Fresh said: “I look forward to engaging with my loyal following at my new home, 947.

Listeners can expect a kick-ass team, kick-ass show, a lot of entertainment, laughter and finally being back on radio.”
