Meanwhile, Maobotja has made a return to Radio 702 on Monday, November 22, with her brand new show 702 Afternoons with Relebogile Mabotja, weekdays from 1pm to 3pm.
She previously hosted the 702 Early Breakfast show for two years, from 2017 till 2019.
Speaking to The Star, Mabotja said she’s excited about her move back to a talk radio station.
“Apart from becoming a mom, I am sure that I have grown in my experience of being a broadcaster and a woman. Listeners can gear up for great conversations, playfulness, honesty, and great futures on the show. It will feel like I never left,” said Mabotja.
Mabotja is replacing Azania Mosaka, who bid the station farewell last Friday.
Mosaka says all good things must come to an end, and after 20 years of radio, she will be stepping away from the microphone to focus on her personal goals.
“I am taking on the active citizenry baton through my NGO, Peo Impact Gardens in Soweto.
“I look forward to moving into a space of implementation, physically and actively doing community outreach, and to use my voice to raise the profile of communities in need,” said Mosaka.
Mabotja guarantees listeners light, irreverent and meaningful conversations.
“I look forward to stepping back behind the 702 microphones and growing with the audience as we walk the talk together. I am happy to be back home,” said Mabotja.
Registration for the physical conference at AMPD Studios has reached capacity, however, online registrations are still open.
