Rian van Heerden, host of the award-winning The Complimentary Breakfast on Jacaranda FM, is staying put. He was due to leave the station at the end of the month but, in a dramatic turn of events, has been persuaded to stay on as host of The Complimentary Breakfast.


Yesterday morning, Jacaranda FM’s programme manager, Gavin Meiring, interrupted Rian’s show explaining that there had been numerous requests from listeners for Rian to stay, and read some of these messages on air. A very surprised and somewhat reluctant Rian eventually decided to open the lines to his listeners so that they could make their voices heard. Rian took a day to deliberate and given the fact that he still has a couple of exciting things to tick off his bucket list, Rian apologised in advance for staying on a bit longer. He is looking forward to bringing you more laughter, more tears and of course looks forward to pushing your buttons even more.


What he’ll get up to after that is still a closely guarded secret that only Rian knows.


“Rian is a class act broadcaster and we at Jacaranda FM are really happy that he has decided to stay,” says Meiring. “His brand of controversial, funny and emotive content, mixed with more of the music you love, is what makes him the most popular morning show host in Gauteng.”  


Meiring says that, in addition to things that remain the same for now, there are also a couple of exciting changes coming to the Jacaranda FM line-up: Kriya Gangiah will now be hitting the airwaves every Monday to Friday between 7 and 10pm and the Breakfast Extra show – between 4am and 6am - will now presented by the ever-popular Mmasea Petje.
