Heart 104.9 has modified its line-up changes effective 01 May 2006. The main focus of Cape Town’s soul station is to provide listeners with programming which presents a wide range of information, entertainment, sports and their favourite music. But rather than make these changes on a ‘gut feeling’, considerable time and effort went into researching what listeners in Cape Town want.
The programming kicks off with the Hearty Breakfast Show, 6am-9am Monday to Friday, featuring Saskia Falken, Julian Naidoo as traffic anchor, Vanessa Poonah as news anchor, Nick Feinberg on the sports desk and Robin Adams as producer.
Clarence Ford and Natalie Becker swop timeslots, with Ford now hosting the popular 9am-12pm time channel Mondays to Fridays.
Natalie Becker moves to the evening slot between 6pm and 10pm Mondays to Fridays to soothe and relieve the after-hour work fatigue.
Ian Ward will now present the 10am-2pm weekend slot after a sabbatical in the radio industry and is looking forward to entertaining and enthusing Heart listeners.
Listeners will also be familiar with weekend sports anchor, Tony Lankester, who presents the weekend sports bulletins between 2pm and 6pm Saturdays and Sundays.
