Robert Marawa makes dramatic return to SABC to host two radio sports shows

JOHANNESBURG- The SABC will announce the return of popular sportscaster Robert Marawa to the public broadcaster’s radio airwaves on Friday.

Marawa will host two radio sports shows in a historic simulcast broadcast on both Metro FM and Radio 2000 between 6pm and 8pm from Monday to Friday.

TimesLIVE is reporting that the contract negotiations between Marawa and the SABC concluded on Thursday and his new sports show would take centre stage on the two stations for two hours.

TimesLIVE quoted an insider, “This has never been done before and Robert is about to make history‚”

It is unclear what will happen to Marawa’s replacement Thomas Mlambo who has hosted the Ultimate Sports Show on Metro FM for the past few months.

SABC spokesman Kaizer Kganyago said he could not comment on the contract details nor if Marawa had signed the contract yet, “Until I have seen a signed contract‚ I cannot say anything. You know my policy‚”

“As long as someone has not shown me a signed contract yet‚ then I really cannot say anything my brother.”

Last July Marawa had a bitter argument over a disagreement about the suspension of his close and trusted producer Beverley Maphangwa, the standoff caused him to leave the SABC with his producer who left after her suspension.

Marawa now returns to his former audience at Metro FM and a another audience Radio 2000 listerners.
