SABC 3 and 5FM have joined forces to bring viewers a new magazine, lifestyle and music show. The show will be called (TV)5.
The show will bring the 5 FM dj’s to our screens and will offer the latest information on music, news, gossip, fashion, the best parties to be and much more.
It will also give viewers a sneak peek into the lives of some of the biggest radio DJs and presenters in the country. Many of the features that 5FM listeners know and love will be brought to life visually. This includes Gareth Cliff’s ‘News to Use or Lose’.
5FM Station Manager, Aisha Mohamed, says: “5FM has always taken a unique approach to radio, viewing it as a brand rather than just a radio platform. 5FM aims to be a multi-platform youth offering which is accessible on many levels; (TV)5 is a part of this 360 degree approach to radio, adding an exciting new dimension to 5FM’s brand offering.”
SABC3 Marketing Manager, Risuna Mayimele, says that (TV)5 is an exciting new addition to the channel’s Friday night entertainment line-up. “SABC3 is excited to be launching a local entertainment programme powered by an innovative and edgy brand like 5FM. This is a powerful media platform that brings the power of radio to TV, and we believe that the fusion of these two brands will enable SABC3 to connect with the younger market in a fresh manner.”
Grant Nash and Anele Mdoda are the shows anchors. Features will also include Sureshnie’s Top 3 of the Top 40 as well as a number of packaged inserts lead by 5FM DJs as they gig, party, travel, promote and grab headlines around the country.
The first episode of (TV)5 will be broadcast on SABC3 on Friday, 4 February at 19:30 and will be broadcast for 26 weeks in its first season.
