Tbo Touch On Whether Or Not He Will Ever Return To Radio. When it comes to the entertainment industry, those who have been in the game for long are always looking for new ventures which will showcase their growth. One such is Tbo Touch, who has evolved massively over the years. He started his radio career back in 2004 at Metro FM, and as years went by, Tbo Touch became a media mogul with his own radio station where he hired some of the best radio personalities in the country.
Even though it has been years since he left traditional radio, a lot of his fans still miss him on the airwaves. Taking it down memory lane, one tweep shared a video of an introduction of one of Tbo Touch’s shows on Metro FM. A lot of tweeps then opened up about how much they miss him on radio.
One tweep asked him if he will ever go back to traditional radio. Tb Touch responded by saying he will never leave radio, he is just on long vacation. We definitely can’t wait to hear him back on radio.
“I will leave never Radio, I’m just on a long vacation. maybe http://IIOB.net will train the next hottest on-air monster,” Tbo Touch said.
During his stay at Metro, the media mogul was in charge of the international ‘Metro FM Live‘ show where he worked on building his portfolio as an upcoming disk jockey.
In 2005, Tbo Touch was officially the face of Rhyme and Reason which was a three-hour long show. Tbo Touch was the first media personality in South Africa to host four different programs, amongst them were two live television programs. At the time, he was still working for Metro FM and Touch Central.
In 2006, Tbo Touch saw himself get a gig that had him host the Metro FM Awards for two years in a row. Touch was awarded Best Host by Metro FM in 2009. After 12 years with the SABC station, Touch shocked the nation when he resigned.
According to reports, Touch quit over the SABC’s refusal to deny reports that he had been taken off air for a week for refusing to read a Hyundai advert, to which the SABC later lost R15-million worth of advertising.
A few weeks after resigning from one of the biggest radio stations in South Africa, Metro FM, Tbo Touch announced that he will be launching his own record label and entertainment company.
