Y, South Africa’s largest commercial youth radio station, confirms that Breakfast show host, DJ Ankletap, also fondly known by Y listeners as ‘Malume’, will bid farewell to the station and listeners after 12 years with the brand. The last edition of Y Mornings will be broadcast on 24 March 2023.
DJ Ankletap, who began his journey at Y in 2011, grew with the brand from overnight training slots to hosting Y’s flagship show Y Mornings. “The day I entered the Programming Manager’s office for the first time, I knew that Y would be my home. I have dedicated 12 years of my life to this brand and believe that the time has come to make way for a new generation of talent to take the reins. I believe in Y and in the talent here. I will miss the Y Mornings listeners, but I know I am leaving them in good hands. I will always hold Y in my heart,” says DJ Ankletap. Y Mornings co-host Kandis ‘Kardash’ says “Starting each weekday with the Y Mornings listener has been the greatest honour and I will miss them. We have made amazing radio together and I look forward to hearing the new team on air”. The new breakfast show will be announced with the rest of the 2023 line-up which will debut on 1 April 2023.
