Announcing her departure from her co-hosting post on Kfm’s popular show ‘The Flash Drive’ alongside Carl Wastie, South African media icon Zo Brown has since made her decision public. She had a successful run of six years, during which her charisma and humour won over audiences.
On June 26th, Kfm made the official news that Brown would be leaving the station as of June 30th. The news was also shared on Zo’s social media accounts, where she used the hashtag “Zo’s not going… she’s growing” to allude to her development and future potential.
Brown has been in radio since 2012, so her departure may be sad for her, but she is looking forward to having more time on her hands. In 2014, the Cape Town-based host began her career at Kfm as host of the overnight show. Before joining Carl Wastie on ‘The Flash Drive,’ she worked as the Traffic presenter for ‘The Drive Time Show’ with Rob Vember in 2015 and 2016.
As Brown alluded to the song “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles in her social media post, it seemed to suggest that she was making a transition from radio to the visual medium. Fans who want to see more of the energetic host on screen will be pleased to hear this news.
Hennie Myburgh, manager of Kfm 94.5, praised Brown for his contributions to the station. He gushed about her extraordinary vitality, charisma, and wit, and he gave credit to her tireless effort for all the acclaim she had received. Myburgh continued by encouraging Zo and wishing her well in her next professional endeavour.
The reaction to Brown’s decision to leave Kfm has been overwhelmingly positive from both colleagues and listeners. Broadcaster Tracey Lange expressed her best wishes, adding, “Enjoy this new journey Lady, here’s to growth!! While some, like Erin Drayton and Anthea_l, expressed regret over the end of an era, others, like Guy McDonald, expressed joy and success for Brown’s next step.
The media landscape of South Africa is eagerly awaiting Zo Brown’s next move as one era comes to a close and another begins. Whatever it is, you can count on being impressed by her energetic presence.
