5FM’s Fresh@5 breakfast team welcomes a new traffic reporter next month. Joining the station from fellow SABC station Umhlobo Wenene, Nonala “Nala” Tose will take up a microphone alongside DJ Fresh, Carmen Reddy and Duran Collett, as of 1 December.
Nala is armed with a Bachelors of Social Sciences degree in Psychology and Organisational Psychology, but it’s radio that fuels her passion. She has spent almost 10 years on air at various radio stations in the country and earned herself a Bright Star Young Achiever radio award in 2013.
“Nala has spice, experience and a live loud style and personality. That’s what we look for when we add new members to the 5FM family,” says Station Manager, Justine Cullinan, “We welcome another brilliant woman in radio to our ranks.”
On joining the 5FM family, Nala says the thought of working on a brand as cool as 5FM is amazing,
“I eat, live and breathe broadcasting and have been working towards this since day one and it’s all a little surreal. I am psyched just to Live Loud and look forward to being the best I can be, doing what I love with a world class team.”
And while she’s thrilled at the new start, she is a ball of nerves at the thought of working alongside DJ Fresh. “Fresh is the epitome of timeless broadcasting. The wealth of knowledge and the institutional memory behind that infectious laugh will teach me a thing or two for sure.”
Tune in to Fresh@5, weekdays from 05:00 – 08:00.
