“2022 is my 20th anniversary as a broadcaster. I have been with the company for 14 years, Primedia formed part of my personal and professional growth. They are like family to me," says Mdoda.

Jonathan brings with him global standards and perspectives to broadcasting and entertainment.”

Mdoda and 947’s long-standing commitment was celebrated through a power shoot featuring the breakfast radio darling and Phumzile Langeni, chair of Primedia Broadcasting.
“We are fortunate to be driven by the crystal clear and contagiously compelling vision of Jonathan, whose stewardship heralds bigger and greater ideas for the future of our business,” says Langeni. “At Primedia it is all about validating our people. When our people succeed, we succeed… There is so much more that we need to still see from Anele.”
