Gareth Cliff’s new radio show launches today (1 May 2014) on a wide range of platforms, including the DStv Comedy Central channel, the DStv website, WeChat (CliffCentral OA) and the CliffCentral website.
The show airs between 6:00 and 09:00 on weekdays, with a live broadcast on Comedy Central from 07.35 to 08.50.
The Gareth Cliff Show is hosted by Cliff, joined by his team Leigh-Ann Mol, Mabale Moloi, Damon Kalvari and intern Siya Sangwni-Fynn.
According to Cliff the show will bring listeners real conversation about “everything in the news and everything that happens in life”.
“Joining us will be first-class guests, edgy material and a healthy dose of intelligence, humour and inspiration…and lots of phone calls,” Cliff said.
Cliff is upbeat about the prospects of his new show, especially considering the opportunities which the “non-radio” platforms bring.
“CliffCentral is going to be a new media platform. We are going to use mobile, the Internet, television. It is going to be unradio,” Cliff explained. “It is going to be radio everywhere, except on radio.”
CliffCentral announced that it will be holding live auditions from the hundreds of applications they received from 9:00 during the first two weeks of May.
“From Monday we’ll also be introducing our regular contributors who will be well-known personalities and experts in their fields. By mid-May we’ll be broadcasting from 6am to 6pm which will be repeated – 24/7,” CliffCentral said.
