Touted as South Africa’s biggest youth radio station, 99.2 YFM has introduced the future of South African DJ culture with the announcement of its 2012 line-up.

Having paved the way for young talent over the years, YFM is raising the bar again with its carefully handpicked selection of young talent spearheading the new school revolution. Leading the pack is heavyweight Tholi B, who comes with years of experience and true YFM DNA, making him the perfect choice to take over the afternoon drive time show.

Another new development set to hit the YFM airwaves on 2 April is a new music mix format – YTKO. YTKO promises to deliver a lively party atmosphere, turning any dull weekday at the office into a weekend session at the club. This new daily mix feature, packed with good pure music, is geared up and ready to introduce a new era in South African DJ culture.

“This is a true coming of age story as a brand. YFM has come full circle, and with the introduction of YTKO, the texture of live mixes on radio will be transformed and perfected. YFM ignites your passion and sets your soul on fire, whatever space the listener is in, and we aim to make them move!” says Monaheng.
