Idols judge and media personality Unathi Msengana has left Metro FM
Singer and presenter Unathi Msengana, who has been with Metro FM for the past 10 years, announced on Instagram that she is leaving the station.
Her caption was: “Well, that was my last show on METRO! Thank you for YOUR love for the past decade.”
This follows the shocking news last week that veteran DJ Glen Lewis was leaving the station to join Touch HD, which is owned by former Metro FM DJ Thabo ‘Tbo Touch’ Molefe. Glen co-hosted the First Avenue with Unathi since 2007.
When she joined the radio show, she said she had never dreamt that one day, she would work for a radio station like Metro FM.
“Never in my wildest dreams growing up did I think that I could make it onto METRO FM, but here it is and I am ready to embrace the challenge,” she said.
She also spoke about how Glen Lewis guided her during her early days at the station.
“Glen has been there for me from the beginning – he really played a role in nurturing me over the past years and so I was very grateful to be given a chance to work with him,” she said when she joined.
Msengana also spoke her mind and remained herself while hosting the show. “I believe that if you are real and sincere, you can reach out and touch the listeners and they will not want to stop listening to your show,” she said on the website.
Attempts to get a hold of Metro FM’s station manager were unsuccessful.
