If you thought floor-crossing was only a parliament thing, think again.

Lately, the staff of radio stations have been following this trend set by politicians, causing instability in the radio-broadcasting industry.

It seems that radio stations such as Metro FM have been hugely affected. One wonders if it's the money that's the driving force behind all these moves?

YFM DJs Adil More and Unathi Nkayi have joined Metro FM. More said he left because he felt he had outgrown the youth-radio station.

"I was approached by a number of stations, but I chose Metro FM. I just could not resist the offer. The slot they gave me is popular and that means a challenge for me."

More now hosts the most famous Saturday slot, Metro FM Top 40, between 10am and 2pm. He has already received a positive response from listeners.

Defining the show, he said: "The show is about the music charts. I will try to include local artists, whom I feel deserve to be on the charts."

Kgomotso "KG" Moeketsi, who left Kaya FM under a cloud only to resurface at Gagasi FM as a programmes manager, is back.

Moeketsi said: "Radio has been my passion and first love. I am very excited about this move. And because Metro is a good radio station I will not disappoint."
