This investment will allow the station to carry out its mandate to both listeners, clients and strategic stakeholders.

“We remain committed to delivering exceptional content with a focus on creativity and cementing our leadership position in the market. The new line-up reflects why we are South Africa’s coolest radio station and speaks to the greater heights the Metro FM brand is climbing to. At 5.4m listeners, we are not done.
