Just after announcing Ethan Kavuma as the winner of Sanyu FM’s Hot Mic Search, the new look of Sanyu FM keeps taking shape as renowned radio personality Yvonne Koreta has joined the team.
Matooke Republic understands that Koreta will co-present the morning show with comedian Patrick Salvado Idringi.
Koreta has been working as deputy station controller at one of the Kamwokya based FM radio stations.
“Yvonne and Salvado will host the Sanyu Breakfast show from Monday to Friday, getting listeners up-to-speed with the biggest stories of the day and setting up the week with intelligent conversation and features,” a source at the station told us.
Sanyu FM staff laid their tools in early June, protesting a salary cut that had been occasioned by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Some of the personalities later returned to work, but the station used it as an opportunity to rebuild and improve the rankings of Uganda’s oldest privately owned FM station.
First on the hiring list was veteran radio personality Roger Mugisha who came in as programmes director. Mugisha is behind the refreshing of the station where he cut his radio teeth more than two decades ago.
Matooke Republic understands that there are more presenters who are yet to be unveiled.
