Radio 2000’s has been given the approval from the SABC group executive and the SABC board to become a truly proudly South African fully fledged public service radio station that caters for the new South Africa in all its diversity. The sound of the station will reflect and resonate the heritage and culture of South African music across all its different genres.

The Mid Morning show will be hosted by the female radio powerhouse KG Moeketsi who will be dealing with lifestyle topics.
