It’s been almost four months since Thando Thabethe resigned at 5FM, but she has refused to rule out the possibility of returning back to radio. The star left the station due to contractual issues, and recently told Drum  that she had to leave for her own peace of mind.

“It’s unfortunate how things turned out. I needed to do it for myself, and I am very proud of myself for it.”

Thando said her first love is acting, and that will be the focus of her career going forward. However, she won’t rule out the possibility of her returning to the airwaves, but maybe in a different form.

Fans have been calling for Thando to return to the airwaves, and she has constantly thanked fans for their support.

“I think radio is changing with the times. Podcasts seem to be the way forward. They afford listeners what Netflix offers viewers, namely on-demand consumption of content. Would I go back to radio? Never say never.”

Thando took to Twitter in April to open up about her 5FM exit, claiming  she had tried to negotiate a pay increase and some leave in her contract renewal, but later heard  her popular afternoon drive-time show would no longer be aired as it allegedly did not fit into the SABC’s two to five-year plan.

Thando and the SABC allegedly had several back and forths before she decided to resign.

  2. Nice post. I find out some thing much harder on distinct blogs everyday. Most commonly it is stimulating to learn content off their writers and practice a specific thing from their store. I’d opt to apply certain together with the content in my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide link with your web blog. Thank you sharing.

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100 positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  4. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thanks
