Gareth Cliff Parts Ways With 5FM

5FM released a statement on Monday morning announcing that radio DJ, Gareth Cliff, is leaving the station. The outspoken Cliff recorded his final show this morning, bringing to a close a ten year run on the 5FM breakfast show.

Cliff revealed his decision on his website this morning, hinting that he and his breakfast team were looking forward to new opportunities:

“Today, 31st March 2014, I did my last show on 5FM after a decade at the SABC. It’s time for a change. My team and my audience are like my dysfunctional radio family and we want to offer something new and exciting. After two suspensions and several close-shaves, dozens of BCCSA complaints and almost as many management changes at the SABC, it’s time to get unhinged!”

Gareth Cliff commented; “I’ve had an amazing decade at 5FM together with my ‘one-of-kind’  team  and I have loved every minute. The journey has been an unforgettable one but I’m excited about the future." 

“5FM is sad to announce that, after ten years on air, Gareth Cliff will be leaving the station at the end of March 2014.

“Gareth Cliff and 5FM are parting ways after an exceptional journey as Gareth will be pursuing further opportunities in his personal capacity,” explained  5FM’s programming manager Tim Zunckel.
