Metro FM's new weekday sports presenter, Mpho Maboi has promised that her new radio show will be for women "all year round".
Mpho Maboi made headlines this week when it was announced that she would be taking over from Robert Marawa on the popular Metro FM weekly show. Mpho's appointment will definitely give the show a new face; something that the presenter has done more than once in her career.
When you think of sports presenters who have paved the way for women in local television and radio, Mpho is definitely one of the first names that come to mind. Speaking to Sunday World, Mpho revealed her big plans for the show and it's no surprise to see that women are at the heart of them:
"I want to move and grow with my listeners as we engage‚ challenge‚ discuss and debate different issues. The talent is there‚ women like Caster [Semenya] for example epitomise excellence for women in sport but she still isn't getting the endorsements she deserves. Issues of equality for example need to be put on the table‚ luckily we will have the platform all year to do so‚ not just women's month‚"
