After being with the SABC for two decades (22 years to be precise), veteran radio broadcaster Glen Lewis is leaving SABC’s Metro FM radio to join Tbo Touch’s TouchHD.
Although some tweeps were not happy with the news, TouchHD announced that Glen would be joining the station, including fellow TV and radio producer Tim Modise.
“We can confirm that they have joined the station. We are excited to welcome them on board. Their appointment is in line with our strategy to bring the best talent on the African continent to the station,” Touch HD spokesperson Lulu Ndevu said.
Glen is rumored to be hosting the morning show on Touch HD.
Glen currently hosts First Avenue with Unathi Msengana and Melanie Bala.
